Unable to connect to outgoing e-mail server

After downloading (earlier this week) the latest security 
patch for Outlook XP, I received the following 
message: "Outlook is unable to connnect to your outgoing 
(SMTP e-mail server. If you continue to receive this 
message contact your Internet service provider."  
I contacted my ISP and their advice was to restore my 
previous version of Outlook (without the patch).  I 
haven't taken that step yet.  
I can access my e-mail through Outlook Express, but I 
prefer Outlook.  Advice?

Delete and recreate your mail account. Ensure that if you are required to
sign onto the incoming server, that you set authentication on the server tab
of your account properties.

Monitor Server in 2003?
Hi all, After installing Exchange 2003 SP1, I'm having some issues monitoring exchange server via scripting. 1. I can no longer get any instances from "Win32_PerfRawData_ESE_DatabaseInstances" via scripting. 2. The property "LogGenerationCheckPointDepth" does not even appear as a property of "Win32_PerfRawData_ESE_DatabaseInstances". (I checked this with WMI CIM studio) I can still get the LogGenerationCheckPointDepth from performance monitor. The following code verifies what I've seen in WMI CIM studio: set RawProc = GetObject("winmgmts:\\r...

Cannot open Excel attachment from e-mail when Excel is already ope
This is driving me crazy. If I already have Excel open (with or with out a spreadsheet open) I cannot open an Excel spreadsheet attached to an e-mail.

Mysterious e-mails

Outlook Express and LAN connection
I have Outlook Express 6.00.280 installed on Win NT 4.0 SP6 which is LAN connected to another PC that has Internet connection (Proxy server). Email account on my PC is POP3 for incoming mails and SMTP for outcoming. Now the problem is that I cannot receive emails but can only send them through this Proxy. Internet Explorer and all other applications that require Internet connection through proxy are working OK. The only problem I have is to receive emails. I setup the same account on another PC which has direct connection to the Internet through dialup and no problems for both sending and rece...

Mail will not Send/Receive automatically
I have outlook set up to send/receive every minute but it suddenly stopped doing so. Anyone have ideas why? Robin Several. For starters, a one minute polling interval is just nuts. It is difficult to determine why automatic polling is failing when you do not post your mail account type, connection type and polling settings. If automatic polling once worked and now fails, you also need to examine what changes were made to your setup before automatic polling stopped working. In general, here are the reasons automatic polling might fail in Outlook: 1. You have created an unrealistic po...

Multiple domains on one Exchange server / All but one domain shows up as spam #2
I am sorry if this is on the board somewhere but I have been searching forever and havn't found a hint yet. I have multiple domains setup on my exchange server. Lets say abc.com, def.com, and hij.com. We only send email with @abc.com but can receive from any domain name. Recently we merged with another company and we brought back their email to our server, lets say xyz.com. Now I configured a new recipient on Exchange 2003, so I now have two policies. The first policy has the three original domains in it with @abc.com as the primary domain. In the second policy I have configured xyz.com t...

Using Company Wide Mail Templates.
Hi, I do not know if i am at the right spot here, or if it is evne possible, but i got the following question. My boss would like me to make sure that every outgoing mail has the same looks. It starts by adding a signature that is the same for everyone, except with ofcourse personalized information. This was easily done by giving everyone a signature. The next question is however, to put the head of our website, also above our mail. This means that every user that sends a mail, the mail will have a nice header, underneath that header, the mail is typed, and then its ended with the si...

WLM Beta Junk Mail Filter
The junk mail filters has stopped filtering mail. The address shows in the list of blocked addresses but the mail is not filtered. The filter worked fine in WLM but I don't think it has worked since I loaded the Beta. Where exactly are you looking when you say the address is the same as the one in your Blocked Senders? The From line may not show the true entry, look at the entry in the From field you see after pressing Ctrl+F3 on that message.

Hi Guys, I was wondering if I could get some help with the following problem we are having on our company. Here is the scenario; Our Windows NT 4.0 SP4a server running Exchange 5.5 SP4 crashed (Server 1) due to the exchange database reaching its 16 Gig's max limit.

Migrating Exchange servers
We are in the process of migrating to a new exchange server. The issue we are having is transfering the user's outlook (xp, 2k) address book/contact list to the new server without manually having to log into everyone's computer and pointing their address books to the new server. Is there a way to do this authomatically server-side? You're moving the mailboxes, right? The user's "address book" is the Contacts folder in the mailbox.
