I was thinking it might be a license issue but that would show up in event logs.
When you rebuild the PC do you bring it back to the same data port and it's 
then ok? With a problem PC have you tried on a different data port? Looking for 
infrastructure causes.
When you rename the PC do you delete the machine account in AD?

Ping by name & #  - Yes
Telnet to SMTP  - Yes
See Network? - Yes
DHCP - all good, all normal
/release renew - Yes
nbtstat /RR - Yes
All network drives  - OK
IMAP & POP3 if desired - Yes
Event Log on PC & Exchange server -  no entries
Remove from Domain, add to workgroup, delete domain account, rename PC, assign 
new SID, re-add to domain - OK
Uninstall Office, including all registry additions (a pain in the ass), and 
reinstalling a different version (2000 vs 2002) - no effect
Believe me we've tried as much as possible, to no avail.

So you can PING the IP and the NAME of the SERVER...correct?

Can you make a telnet connection to the Server? 

Can you see your LAN network? 

Are you using DHCP?  If so, is the IP from your DHCP?
