OK this is weird. I am handing down laptops like trikle down economics it seems like. On this one particular laptop the guy that was getting a new one needed to have his old hard drive for capacity reasons. By chance the hard drive would fit and booted up fine installed drives and went on with it. Well the docking station was causing problems with the printer we were trying to install and I ended up getting some memory dump errors, but taking the docking station out of the equation I got the printer installed and everything.
Now, we are running W2K and Office XP with Outlook 2003, when he goes to launch his email it asks if we want to retry, work offline, or cancel. Which was weird but when it wouldn't connect I started to get concerned. I ended up deleting his profile in outlook and trying to set it back up and that is when I started getting the error message of
"The action could not be completed. The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action."
The funny thing is, is that I have got drives mapped to the same server that exchange is on, SBS 2003 BTW, and can browse them just fine. I have since uninstalled/reinstalled countless times. Tried using the Outlook XP before upgrading to 2003 and that came back with an error of "An unknown error occurred, error code: 0x9004010f."
Please tell me that somebody has run into this and knows exactly what I am talking about.
Thanks in advance.
