Cannot connect outlook 2007 to exchange 2003 via LAN

Hello there,
I got a new laptop for work running Vista and outlook 2007 and no matter how 
many times I tried setting it up to connect to the exchange server 2003, I 
always get the message that outlook is not connected and it needs to be 
connected to complete this action....
I used to have a laptop running XP and outlook 2003 and it worked fine with 
the same mailbox settings .

Any ideas please?

How do I uninstall Outlook 2007
I downloaded and installed Office 2007 SBA and it installed everything, but I didn't want Outlook as I use Windows Live Mail. I went into Control Panel and thinking there would be a "repair" option, but was just presented with the dialog "are you sure you want to uninstall Microsoft Office 2007?" and was afraid to click Yes because I only want to uninstall Outlook, not the whole thing. Can someone tell me how to uninstall just Outlook? Thanks. I posted this same message on 03/31/2010 but cannot find it and no one has posted any followup. Thanks in a...

Outlook express rules into outlook
Hi, I'm a long term user of Outlook Express, mainly for its ability to handle news as well as mail. Its message store as little flaky, to say the least, so I'm attempting to migrate back to Outlook for mail, I'm intending to try to use Windows Live Mail for news, since it seems to have a more robust message store. I've imported my Outlook Express accounts, messages and rules, after a fashion. The rules do not seem to have survived the import unscathed. I have many rules of the form: If 'from' contains 'address' OR If 'to or cc' contains 'addr...

Outlook 2003 changes to Outlook bar

It gives me "Object Required: ol.ActiveExplorer". I have tried to debug the script (obiously slightly changed so it works within the Visual Studio) but still cannot see why this is the case because ActiveExplorer object exists in the Outlook Object browser. I was expecting the error with "Item("OutlookBar")" as the Outlook Bar has been changed/merged with the folder lis...

Money 2007 Delux stops working when updating
I've been using Money 2007 Deluxe since its release with no problems. Suddenly last week it stops working whenever I request it to update my accounts. If I do not force an update to the accounts - it works perfectly fine and will download transactions every 24 or so hours.

Simultaneous socket connections. Is there a limit?
My client wants me to write an application that maintains 30 or 40 simultaneous socket connections to different hardware devices. For each device the throughput requirements are very small since only some small packets are sent occasionally at random intervals. Is there a simultaneous limit? 30 or 40 is far more then I have ever done. I don't want any surprises. Is there a limit? I assume XP Professional would handle this. Correct? Would XP Home be any different? My laptop has XP home. To certain incoming ports, its 10, although there are several cracks out their to remove this...

server connect
When I first start up Outlook 2003, it contacts the mail server and everything is hunky-doory. However, when attempting to next access the mail account by the send/receive access or in background, it indicates that it cannot locate the server and gives me error (0x80004210A). This error number is not consistent other than for the 0x800 portion. The location does not change, so how can it find it initially, and not later on? I'm confused. What type of mail server? POP3, IMAP, Exchange, HTTP, Other...? Does the same happen when you disable your firewall and/or virusscanner (integra...
