The connection to the server has failed...


I need some help with the following. I have 2 email accounts. When I'm at
home I used one and when I'm on the road I used the other one. Everytime I'm
at home and used email account2 to send messages I get the following error
message:
The connection to the server has failed. Account 'accounname' Protocol:
SMTP, Port 25 Secure (SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number 0x800CCCOE
The ISP made a few recommendations but I'm still having this problem. I used
to be able to send emails without any problems. One of the suggestions was to
use my home ISP SMTP server. I don't want to be going back and for with the
SMTP servers. I have tried everything. The only thing I have not try is to
remove the software which I don't this its possible.
I have also tried to used my old version of out look which is outlook 97 but
I have the same problem.
Any help on this would be appreciated.

Every time my computer comes out of standby, and I try to receive
mail, Outlook Express sends an error message that says connection to
sever has failed.
I tried closing and reopening Outlook and that does not help.
I have to reboot the computer and then it works normally.
Anyone know a fix for this?
thanks

Does any one know how I can fix this?




Hi all,

I have a problem arose recently: exchange server 2000 Sp3, Windows 2000 Sp4, 1.3 Ghz, 512Mb RAM is servicing 30 users. Several times a day random users (Outlook 2000 and 2003) does experience an error, the window says something like: "the connection to the exchange server has been lost..." and 3 buttons: retry, work offline and cancel. On retry the connection resumes. Although the error is not serious but it takes a minute or two for people to sit and wait for their mail to come alive. During the mail shortage the network has usual performance.
It does not look like a hardware productivity lack as perfomance monitor does not show any abnormally long queues. The application and system logs does not have any "criminal" events. Please advice where to look at.

Thanks




I have Windows XP Pro, with Office 2003. My antivirus is AVG (if that's
important).
I have a hotmail account. The problem is that almost every time I go to get
my messages, I get the "connection to server could not be established". Then
I have to click "connect to hotmail" and go through all this.

Everything else works fine but this. Can anyone offer me advise?
Thanks,
Mark

I have an iPhone 3GS with the 4.3.1 OS. Our office runs a MS Exchange 2003 server with SP2. I don't get any error messages when I input the server info, username, and password on the account setup screen (there are no problems verifying the server). However, when I open the Mail app the following error message appears: Cannot Get Mail. The connection to the server failed. I have asked my IT admin several times for help and he insists that I have all the info I need to set up the iPhone to access the Exchange server (i.e., I should be able to input the server info, username, and password and it should work just fine... well it doesn't).

I noticed that when I access my mail on the web at https://mail.ourservername.com/exchange there is a popup that states There is a problem with this website's security certificate. Our IT admin has instructed us to click on the Continue to this website link and not worry about the certificate warning. This got me thinking and researching- I downloaded an ActiveSync tester app for my phone and sure enough, everything passed the "test" except the certificate. It appears as though our certificate expired last year. Could this be the issue? Is it necessary to have a valid and current security certificate in order for the Exchange ActiveSync to work properly on my iPhone? Again, the admin insists this shouldn't be a problem.

He also sent me a screenshot of the Mobile Services Properties settings (General tab). All of the Exchange ActiveSync options are enabled but the Outlook Mobile Access option is not enabled. Could this be related? Does the OMA need to be enabled as well?




I am having a tough problem with a Windows 2003 server. One of the
symptoms is that if I reinstall Apache, I get the Windows Installer error
"Failed to connect to server. Error: 0x800401F0." This is after installing
Windows Installer 4.5. I am constantly repointed to KB 319624, but that
article applies only to Windows 2000 Server. Since messing with things such
as DCOM permissions is tricky stuff, I am extremely reluctant to make
changes on a production server unless I know that it is safe. Does anyone
know if a similar article has been written for Windows 2003 or if those DCOM
permissions are okay for Windows 2003? If they're okay, I could use a
reference.




Hi All,
I have this issue with user, where user connection to the Exchange server keeps dropping. the exact error log is: 

Connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server has been lost. Outlook will restore the connection when possible.

When this happens I can ping the Exchange 2007 server, it resolves correctly by IP and Hostname. This only happens on user that change their location from site A to site B, user mailbox at Exchange 2007 server at site A. Network is fine,  it's only connection to Exchange server. Sometimes it repairs itself, other times user stay disconnected until user does a manual send/receive. Running fully patched  Windows 7, with Outlook 2007.

Details:-

Site A

1. Exchange 2007 Edge server role

2. Exchange 2007 Hub/CAS server role

3. Exchange 2007 Mailbox server role

4. Active Directory 2008 server

 

Site B

1. Exchange 2007 Hub/CAS/Mailbox server role

2. Active Directory 2008 server

 

Could anyone help me with this issue,Im reli appreciated it.

 




When I log in to Outlook Express 6.0 to retrieve email, I frequently get a
message that says the connection to the server has failed......error number
0X800CCC0E. We have 2 accounts. Sometimes only 1 account fails. Other times
both fail. Sometimes it connects just fine.

This is a new problem in the last week. Has something changed? How do I
correct this?




Hi folks,

I have a problem I can't figure out, and googling isn't helping much. I
have a SBS 2003 server running Exchange 2003. I have several remote users
accessing Outlook 2003 via "Outlook over the internet", and all works fine.
I set up a new computer (Vista Business) for a remote user (while connected
to my local network) and configured Outlook over the Internet, and it seemed
to work fine. I brought the PC to it's new office today, hooked it up to the
network and everything is fine except for Outlook. When I first brought up
outlook, it prompted for the username and password, and I inputted her
domainusername and password, but it didn't like that and failed and left
outlook disconnected. I rebooted tried again, same result. I tried to
remove the Exchange account, and just set it up again, but it doesn't want to
let me do that either. Outlook goes to not responding, and I get the error
message: "The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable.
Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action".

Any ideas? Do I need to uninstall and reinstall Outlook?

I am looking for the help of an Exchange guru who can help me with the
dreaded "The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is
Unavailable..." error.

Here is our setup:

We use a remote, managed, Exchange 2003 Server for email and group
calendar. We connect to it via RPC over HTTP.

We use Outlook 2003.

Right now I have 4 PC's that are using Outlook 2003, and they are
working properly. The problem is that I am trying to setup Outlook on
a new laptop, and regardless of what I try, I get the "The connection
to the MS Exchange server is unavailable" message when I try to
resolve the username/password.

After endless trial and error, I was able to get the username/password
to resolve, and at this point when I would launch Outlook on the
laptop it appeared that everything was working - it started to
download messages, set up all the folders etc....but when I try to
print an email I get the "The connection to the MS Exchange Server is
unavailable."

It is important to note that I have set up the laptop exactly like the
PC's that are successfully connecting to Exchange Server.

I have searched for months on google, read many articles and posts,
but have not been able to get to the bottom of this. A few weeks ago I
spent 3 hours on the phone with the guy who manages the Exchange
Server - he admitted I was not the only customer with this problem,
but so far has been unable to figure out what exactly is causing it.
He thinks it was a recent patch/security update, because a few months
ago this whole process worked fine for us.

Oh the laptop is running Windows XP SP2 updated.....I have even tried
to open my firewall to the Exchange and ISA Server....but it doesnt
make a difference.

Could this be a registry setting on the laptop? If so, which one?

Any help would be greatly appreciated...this is really frustrating me
- in fact this has been the most frustrating thing I have dealt with
professionally....absolutely no matter what I do, nothing works. What
really irks me is that a Google search shows that there are many
people experiencing this exact problem, only there is no clear cut
solution that I have been able to find. So if anyone here has any
ideas about this, please help. Setting up Outlook for RPC over HTTP
should be a 10, 15 min procedure, tops....this has turned into a 2+
month debacle, and it is starting to make me look incompetent.

Thanks for your help.
Mike

error message is:-

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'pop.ntlworld.com',
Server: 'pop.ntlworld.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No,
Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

I've contacted the email supplier ntlworld and their bit is working. I've
tried disabling norton internet security and that didn't solve it either. Any
ideas? This has just started after years of untrubled use.
