Doug, have you got a fix for this yet? It may be a registry issue of
missing TCP/IP stack stuff. Do you get an error message? If so, paste
the first 10-15 words directly into a kb search at Technet (or M$
support). Have seen it on 2 or 3 sites, where the machine simply (?)
would not allow a connection to an Exchange Server (or more precisely -
would not authenticate a user). Can find the article again (as I printed
it), but no easy access right now!

If you want me to find the article, e-mail me directly & I will post
information to the group. I have posted this information previously!

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
