Hello

I am trying to set up outlook 2003 (XP) but I am having serious trouble.

I have set up a new profile in order to access via my works Microsoft Exchange Server and all my details are entered correctly including my work server etc.

My server and user name will not underline so when I start Outlook it will not connect.

Any advice would be welcome.

Regards

Paul

Could your work server possibly be located behind a firewall, and, if so, does you work admin provide an alternate port to bypass any firewall issues? And, if you are not sure, you may just want to try port 443, using RPC over HTTP (actually HTTPS) and see if it works.

You may have to install a VPN to get to your work. Most of the time, exchange is not shared publicly due to security concerns.

I am not sure to that question. How can I check and what should I do. I have followed all the settings from my old computer but that has not worked.


Many thanks

Paul
