Can't find exchange Server from Outlook 2000

Can't find exchange Server from Outlook 2000

Can't find exchange Server from Outlook 2000

From home dialed in or from the LAN, the message is the same: unable to open exchange server.  Retry - again the message, third try always brings Outlook up.  Hosts & Lmhosts are correct.  Mail box is underlined.  Network neighborhood shows a connection (able to browse)to the network.

This is a Win95 laptop on a docking station.  This is also the CEO/Owners laptop (of course!).

I can't figure out what makes this different than the many other PC's I have configured with little problem.

Anyone have any clues, incantations, advice or sympathy for me?

RE: Can't find exchange Server from Outlook 2000

If I am reading your question correctly, you are eventually connecting the the mailbox?  If so, what may be happening is that your hardware profile is not set up correctly.  That is, the computer is looking for a NIC that isn't there.  That's just a guess...
