Trouble connecting Outlook 2007 b2 to Exchange?

I configured Outlook 2007 b2 to work w/ Exchange and pull my mail but it
seems that when my VPN dies (automatically every so often) i can't reconnect
to Exchange w/o deleting my old Exchange "account" and creating it again. It
goes like this:

1) I add my Exchange account and everything works fine until i walk away
from my computer and VPN dies (overnight for example). At this point a
send/receive throws an error that "the requested operation cannot be
performed on this account". This after i've reconnected VPN etc. as i
normally would and even try restarted Outlook (at which point it DOES prompt
me to login to my Exchange server account which is weird but i don't get the
"connected to Exchange" business i'm used to seeing in the bottom of 2007).

2) Only way i can retrieve my mail (so far) is to delete the Exchange
account from account manager and recreate it... then everything works again
for a spell (cycle above).

Anyone got any clues? For a test, is there a way to force Outlook 2007 b2
to connect to my Exchange account (and get me back to the state where i see
the "connected to exchange" in the status bar at the bottom?

HELP!!!

I have an issue with a laptop running Vista w SP1 that can not connect
Outlook 2007 to our Exchange 2003 server over a VPN connection. The VPN
connection is valid and Windows authentication is working as we can access
mapped drives, and other network resources. Here are the details:
When connected to the network, W2K3 AD native mode domain, Outlook connects
without an issue. Once the user is remote, they login over VPN using
CheckPoint SecureRemote client, Version 6. The firewall successfully
authenticates the VPN connection. When the user opens Internet Explorer, it
goes to the home page which is our Sharepoint Portal. The user is properly
authenticated in Sharepoint as he can only access the sites that he has
permissions for. The user can access mapped drives, (although when
connecting to the drives initially there is a prompt for domain username and
password). When the user opens Outlook 2007, he is not prompted for domain
username and password. Outlook does not connect. It shows attempting to
connect to Microsoft Exchange server, but fails and shows the status as
disconnected.
This appears to be an authentication issue. When I look in the Windows
Logs in Event Viewer there appear the same sequence of Event IDs each time
the user attempts to connect to Exchange. All four are “Warning Events”
with Event ID 40960 and a source of LsaSrv, which obviously has something to
do with Kerberos authentication. The message details are nearly identical,
with the exception of two or three characters that appear just before a
forward slash, and the name of the server it is trying to connect to. The
first message shows an attempt to connect to the mail server (the names of
the servers it is trying to connect to have been changed, but they are the
correct names):
The Security System detected an authentication error for the server
exchangeRFR/abc-mail.mydomain.com. The failure code from authentication
protocol Kerberos was "There are currently no logon servers available to
service the logon request.
(0xc000005e)".

The second message shows an attempt to connect to the domain controller.

The Security System detected an authentication error for the server
exchangeAB/abc-dc.mydomain.com. The failure code from authentication protocol
Kerberos was "There are currently no logon servers available to service the
logon request.
(0xc000005e)".
The third message shows the same AB reference, but is attempting to connect
to the mail server.
The Security System detected an authentication error for the server
exchangeAB/abc-mail.mydomain.com. The failure code from authentication
protocol Kerberos was "There are currently no logon servers available to
service the logon request.
(0xc000005e)".
The last event is an attempt to connect to the mail server with an MDB
reference.
The Security System detected an authentication error for the server
exchangeMDB/abc-mail.mydomain.com. The failure code from authentication
protocol Kerberos was "There are currently no logon servers available to
service the logon request.
(0xc000005e)".

These 4 event ids appear consistently each time we try to make a connection
form Outlook to Exchange. I can successfully ping both the mail server and
DC by name. I have searched Google Groups and Technet, and looked this up on
EventID.net, and have not found a solution.
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

Hello All,

I have just migrated to Outlook 2007 Beta 2 and connected successfully
to our Exchange server.

All the folders updated and synced correctly, and everything that was
already in my Exchange mailbox is displaying fine.

Whenever I create a new Item, whether it be a task, new contact or a
mail, the item always displays breifly, then is immediately moved to
the local failures folder, with an error reporting that I do not have
permission to perform this operation on this object.

2003 works a dream. I have put 2003 back on to prove nothing had
changed, and perfect. 2007 B2 back on and the same issue.

Any new action is not synced with exchange, and is moved to the Local
Failures folder.

Has anyone any ideas?
Any help much appreciated.


Hi,

I have an Exchange server 2010 with the hub transport, CAS and mailbox running on it.  It is running on Server 2008R2 server, and our AD is also running on server 2008R2.  I have created some users, and can connect to those mailboxes via OWA, but I cannot connect via my outlook clients.  If I use Auto discover, it will correctly discover the exchange server, however it fails to find the mailbox.  I try to manually configure the server, I keep getting prompted to enter credentials, and I know that I am entering in the correct credentials, however it keeps popping up for credentials.  If I cancel, it tells me that Outlook cannot logon. Verify you are connected to the network and are using the proper server and mailbox name.  I can resolve the exchange server via dns, and am joined to the domain.  Authenticating successfully on to Windows.  Please advise.

I installed Office 2007 for a client and after connecting Outlook to his mailbox, after several hours it has only populated his inbox upto Jan this year?
Am i able to force a sync from the server?
Or somehow resync the mailbox?

We are doing cross forest migration from Exchange 2007 SP2 to Exchange 2010 SP2 (hosting) mode.

Around 2000 users and they are pointing to old cas array (oldoutlook.old-domain.local) from Outlook Anywhere over https.

Most users are with manual settings and they use the oldoutlook.old-domain.local in the outlook anywhere configuration.

We don't want and we can't interact with the users that have manual settings and we need to change automatically from server side the oldoutlook.old-domain.local to newoutlook.new-domain.local. We added entry in host files of CAS servers for the old name.

We tested from Exchange Analyzer it worked fine (we believe because of autodiscovery that initially triggered by the analyzer).

When we use outlook manual configuration it gives error that the connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable.

How we can automatically change the settings in the user without their intervention.

Thanks,

I'm seeing the same thing when opening an unread message in an IMAP account.
The send/recieve icon appears in the task bar and outlook is unresponsive. I
have to close it down and then reopen it to read the message which is now
stated as read even though no message window opened (I do not use the preview
function).

This is very annoying and lets hope it gets fixed soon!

Hi All,

Well I am still yet to find a solution, but I just wanted to let you know it
does not matter if it is either an exchange mail server or a POP3 account.
(I have 2 profiles configured 1 is exchange, and one is for POP3 accounts
that I have.) Either way when my rules are running I will not get these
notifications.

Biggest issue I think with this new version (minor issues with the inking
within emails but that is a different topic). Besides the fact that if you
try to "Check for updates" from the help menu in office (Using Microsoft
Update), Office 2007 is not detected on your system.

I hope someone finds a fix/hack.

I'll start this by admitting we are not using a UCC certificate, just a
simple certificate from a trusted provider. I had been given the okay on this
by someone who has run through Exchange 2007 builds many more times than I
have. This is only my third.

Since we don't have a UCC certificate, autodiscover.domain.co.nz will not be
coverered by the cert for remote.domain.co.nz. I understand this, but thought
that we had worked around this in the past.

I have all my pointers (CAS, etc.) set in Exchange to the site with the
certificate (autodiscover, OAB, etc.), but Outlook 2007 won't use these, only
it's self-created list.

Does anyone have a way to get autodiscover to use the certified name instead
of autodiscover?

Thanks,
Clark

I have ONE user (so far) in the company that cannot access the Free/Busy for all users on a particular mailbox server. No other people have the same issue.

They all connect using Outlook 2007 clients to Exchange 2007 Mailboes.

I enabled logging in Outlook and this is the message I see in the ******fb.log - the User with the issue was actually on EXCH07B:
Unable to find a Client Access server that can serve a request for an intraforest mailbox SMTP:user@donmain.com., inner exception: The server EXCH07B.domain.com was not found in the topology

I moved the users mailbox to the other server but that hasn't helped. In retrospect - it looks like I have found another user with this issue

Hi,

Help me !!

I have exchange svr 2010 and almost of users using outlook 2007 as the client.
However, some are still using Outlook 2003 including myself.

We all are ok with outlook 2003. But some of the user, using 2007 are facing problem intermittently outlook 2007 turn to offline or can't download email to .pst file. All user save their email in .pst file in their computer. Anybody had this problem before? Is it because of Outlook 2007 or Exchange server itself?

Advice !! Thanks

I am using Outlook 2007 attached to Exchange Server 2003. I have not been
able to get Instant Search to index anything stored on our exchange server.
At first I thought it was just the Inbox, but now it appears true for any
folder created on the server.

Indexing and searching open PST files seems to work just fine.

Anything I can do here?

I'm testning Outlook 2007 on a Exchange 2003 server, and it's working 90% ok.
I have one small issue.
When i open another calender on the server in Outlook 2007 it takes up to 5
min. before Outlook 2007 is getting the calender infomation for this other
person on the server.

Is there a solution for this issue?

Win Vista Ultimate SP1
Office Outlook 2007 client to Exchange

This just happened.

1. When I click on outlook, I get the wait circle but the opening panel does
not show. In task manager processes, Outlook .exe shows loaded with 2,768K
memory.

2. If I repeat the "click" on outlook, the task manager shows multiple
running Outlook.exe. I can kill each process in task manager.

3. If I click outlook now, I get the panel that says outlook failed to start
correctlty last time, open in safe mode. I say yes and outlook.exe shows up
in task manager but not on the desktop screen. I then kill that process.

4. I then click outlook again and get teh Detect and Repair panel
(outlook.exe in task manager). I say yes and it completes successfully. Now
the outlook.exe is gone from task manager.

5. I then click on outlook and it appears in the task manager but no window
on the desktop.

How do I get outlook to appear so I can get my mail?

I have another PC with outlook 2007 client to exchange and it works just fine.

I have Outlook 2007 configured to check email on my Exchange server, 2
personal POP3 accounts, as well as my hotmail account. I have junk mail
filtering turned on, and all works well - except with the hotmail account.

It's mainly a timing quirk, I guess, between the time the header is
downloaded vs the message body. Many times I'll start highlighting the
headers to delete the junk messges and then all of a sudden Outlook moves
one (or more) of the messages to its Junk Mail folder. That's nice, but
it's caused me to accidently delete legitimate messages that have become
highlighted in the interim.

I'd like to simply turn off junk-mail filtering, but only for that one email
account. I can't seem to find the option anywhere but am hoping there might
be a registry hack...

Ideas?

Thanks!

Outlook 2007 starts to open, then disappears. No error messages.

I recently did some "clean up" things using Glary Utilities, like registry
cleaner, duplicate file remover, registry defrag, C drive defrag.

I have 4 email addresses coming into Outlook. 3 are POP, one is exchange.

My other Office programs are working fine. It is strange that there isn't
an error message. I have done an Office diagnostics and Windows update.

Thanks so much!

I'm having trouble getting Outlook 2007 to print and/or print preview the
month view of my calendar. Although it's worked fine before, now it hangs (a
blank preview page appears, Outlook suddenly starts taking 99-100% of the
CPU, and then it just sits there). Strangely enough, this doesn't happen if
I preview in the week view. Any ideas how I might fix this?

I've tried copying my appointments to a new calendar, hoping to find a
corrupt appointment I could delete, but found none. I've also tried creating
a new .pst file, moving everything over to that, then deleting the original -
that didn't help either. Is there anything else I could try that will let me
print monthly calendars again???

I am using Microsoft Outlook 2007 w/Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. I
continue to get a message asking me to put in my password, and even
though I do, it does not send or receive; just asks for the password
again. Someone told me it was because my Outlook has too many emails
in it. Someone else told me my Exchange Server has too many emails on
it-that I possibly need to go to the online access and delete items
from there. Which is it? I don't want to delete my emails from
Outlook, I need them.

Outlook 2007 fails to launch on my fresh upgrade to Windows 7 from Vista.
I repaired my .pst files, disables all my plugins for outlook, and turned
off my McAfee email scanning.

I have applied Office SP2.

I am caught in a cycle of launching normally, then safe mode, then "Detect
and Repair". The first two modes cause a crash & the third does nothing but
exit silently.

Usually, Outlook comes up & gets to the point where it would make contact
with a server to populate a preview pane then immediately crashes. The
debugger says:
"Unhandled exception at 0x638e68e5 in OUTLOOK.EXE: 0xC0000005: Access
violation reading location 0x0000000c."

I have tried to run as administrator, but this doesn't change anything. I
have also tried running in XP and Vista SP2 compatibility modes,
unsuccessfully.

I have used the control panel ->Mail widget to "Repair" my mail settings and
can not connect to the mail server automatically... When I keep hitting
next, the manual config screen pops up, I verify that all the settings are
correct (using SSL / TLS for gmail) and can manually check the settings as
correct.

Outlook 2007 starts to open, then disappears. No error messages.

I'm having the same problem--you cannot access the options or ribbon, it simply says "cannot open default email folders" and then closes again. Any ideas? THANK YOU!!
