  • Outlook 2007 with Exchange 2003 error: The name cannot be resolved.

    Ok i am about to pull my hair out on this one. I had the issue before and found a fix on expert-exchange.. but now they are a pay to play forums... BAH!!!
    Anyways... I am having this issue with Outlook 2003/2007 and connecting to exchange. I have tried EVERYTHING i know of to fix this issue. I have tried to Zero Config. the netsh... everything you can google..
    The issue is outlook at first start up will not connect to the exchange 2k3 server... I even install outlook on a FRESH BRAND NEW Vista 64 load... and it failed with the same error "The name cannot be resolved. The Operation Failed"
    My DNS is correct. dcdiag and netdiag show all passes.. Exchange Best practices says everything is great...
    I have NO idea what is going on... I am wits end here... if anyone here has anything they can post.. PLZ PLZ PLZ help me!

    Here is a picture of the error. if this helps at all...

    You could perhaps add the FQDN of the server in and see what happens.

    Also, when Outlook is open, hold the Ctrl key down and then right click the Outlook symbol near the system time. There are a couple of options that appear that will help Test Email autoconfiguration and connection status.

      Tried the FQDN. Same error. Tried IP same error.

      I have just removed the NIC from being the possible issue... Tried 4 differnt NIC's all from 3com to linksys to broadcom... all come up with the same error.

        I dont understand, if your exchange is 2003 how its possible to use Autodiscover feature at all.......... Wrong Troubleshooting!!!!!!!!!

        Going by your post Title i am considering its exchange 2003......So for the same user hows does OWA behaves?
