Outlook Anywhere Question
I am trying Outlook Anywhere at home before letting it loose to staff and it is driving me batty.
I have checked all of the values I have entered and I am sure that they are correct. When I try to run Outlook for the first time after changing the connection settings it eventually comes back with:
"The name cannot be resolved. The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailible. Outlook must be online or conncted to complete this action."
I thought this looked like a DNS/name resolution problem at first but as I can ping the server name I do not now believe that to be the case. The only thought I have left now is that my machine at home does not belong to the domain. Do I have to do this on a laptop/desktop which is part of our domain to make this work? If not what else can I try?
Home version of Outlook: 2007.
Home version of Windows: Vista Business.
In Outlook I have selected Account Settings, then the Microsoft Exchange account name then "Change", "More Settings", "Connection", then at the bottom of that pane I have ticked "Connect to Microsoft exchange using http" In the next tab I have entered all of the site specific details needed to connect to the server. I state this here because I wanted readers to know that I have tried setting the Microsoft Exchange Proxy Settings and found it not to work thus far.
Outlook Web Access is working for my user now so it is not an Exchange/mailbox/mail user problem.
Anyone else having the same/similar problems?
