Specs: Windows 7 Pro on HP nw8440 laptop.




Does anyone know if Outlook 2010 Beta is compatible with Exchange 2003? When I try to setup Outlook 2010 Beta I get the following error:


"The action cannot be completed. The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete the connection". However I can ping the Exchange Server and I know it is working as I can setup Outlook 2007 with no problem.

I have it working successfully here so yes. How are you configuring your

Outlook Account?

I have the same problem. I'm running a typical SBS 2003, with ISA 2004 server

and Exchange 2003. I'm tryin to use Outlook 2010 to connect RDPand I'm

getting the same error. I've used Outlook 2003 successfully before.

I try to set it up exactly as I have it set up on my Windows XP computer.




I tried using Mail's Wizard and manually setting my email up. Here's my manual setup settings:




Email Service: Microsoft Exchange


Microsoft Exchange Server: exactly as it is entered in my Windows XP computer


Use Cache Exchange Mode: It is checked.

What happens if you use the option to manually configure Microsoft Exchange?

Has this issue ever actually been resolved? I just started with a new company

and I'm attempting to connect to their Exchange 2003 server with Outlook 2010

via RPC over HTTP. My co-worker and I are getting the same error about

Outlook being unable to resolve the name and that it needs to be online.

This is quite frustrating, so I would just like to hear if anyone actually

has a solution for this.

Thanks,

Tim

You'd better check with the IT people at that new company. They may frown on using beta software with their production server.

And you, too, should ask in the correct venue.
