  • Connecting to Excahange while not a member of domain

    Can anyone tell me if it is possible to connect Outlook 2003 to Exchange if the computer is not a member of the domain?

    Yes it's possible you just get asked for your Network logon credentials everytime you open Outlook.

      When I go to setup the Exchange profile and I click check name it asks for domain credentials. It then finds the account but when I load the profile it gives an error that it could not connect to the Exchange server and exits. Is there anything else I need to do?

      EDIT: Just as I wrote this I finally got it to work. Not sure if adding a WINS server in the IPconfig or adding a record to the mail server in the hosts file that did it.

        we use VPN software to access our mailboxes from home PC's, but our VPN software pushes the DNS & wins settings for our work domain to the home PC. Unless we allow this to happen we have to add an entry into a host file to enable the machine to find the Exchange server.

        So from my experience I think your in the right that the host entry fixed the problem.
