Have you ruled out MS KB articles KB281791; KB311573; KB321652 ?

Subject: [exchangelist] can't connect to server in migration

Please help me resolve this long standing problem. I am currently in the
process of migrating our users to Windows 2000 and Windows XP from
Windows 98. At the completion of this process I also expect to migrate
my servers from Windows NT and Exchange 5.5 to Windows 2000 and Exchange
2000. I have migrated one of my workstations to Windows XP and Office
2000 as a test machine. However, I can't seem to be able to connect to
the Exchange server 5.5 server from my Outlook 2000 client with Windows
XP Professional. Whenever I try to resolve the user name in Outlook I
get an error message saying "Name could not be resolved. The operation
failed". I have checked TCP/IP communication and everything seems to be
working fine - DNS, WINS, RPC. I also checked the RPC binding order in
the registry and it looks fine. When I try connecting to another Windows
2000/Exchange 2000 test server that I have there is no problem. However,
we have not made the necessary preparations to migrate the server
environment to Windows 2000/Exchange 2000 in the live environment.
Please help.
