I experienced on this and I sorted out without any problem. But not sure
this solution will fix you out - take it as information. I change client
m/c's DNS settings to exchange server's DNS. Earlier it was with primary
DNS - Exchange server's DNS (Internal IP) and secondary with our ISP's
DNS (Public IP). On windows 2000/XP clients pc's sometimes it get lose
the connection between client and server. What happen was; if my primary
DNS server not responded, it tries secondary DNS. Secondary DNS give my
public MX IP address. What I did was remove public DNS IP address from
the list. Now there is no any connection loses between server/clients.

By the way try to add exchange server's internal IP address to the Hosts
file on client m/c.

Has anyone experianced this?

We run E2k SP3 & Outlook '02 with all SP's. Here we have about 1000
users at around 400 workstations. Of these, maybe 1 per week lose the
ability to connect to connect to the Exchange server. Nothing we've
tried brings it back. Removing from the domain, reinstalling Office,
redo-ing SP's, nothing. The only "fix" is to rebuild the PC. We can ping
the server and all that. There are no listings in any event logs. We are
at a loss as to what in heck could be happening.

I beg you all, if you've come accross this and figured it out, please
share what you did!

Each station runs the newest Mcaffee, the Servers run GFI Security & GFI
