  • Outlook is trying to retreive data from Ms ...

    Hello All,

    I have recently installed outlook 2003 sp 2 on my workstations. For some reason i am getting this message "Outlook is trying to retreive data from ms exchange server..." During this time outlook stalls for a few seconds.

    My boss is getting up tight about it. I have looked at the MS TECH support site. I must download some analyser tools and stuff then pass it to Outlook engineers bla bla...

    Can any one please help me to solve this. After the upgrade to Outlook 2003. I haven't rebooted the Exchange server yet. Do you i think i should?


    Thanks again

    Have you tried uninstalling SP2 to see if the problem is resolved? I dont think a server reboot is in order just yet.

      I was already having the same issues before installing sp2. I just installed sp2 just to see if it could solve the problem.

        Not quite what you put in your original post...

        Anyway you need to check DNS settings, turn off cached mode in your outlook mail profile, turn off any offline settings you have.
