Hello, I have a strange problem with Exchange. We're running Exchange 2000 sp2 on a windows 2000 DC with sp2. And we have a novell 4.11 to 5.1 network. When I first made profiles to connect to the mail server the startup times were slower, about 20-30 seconds on a adsl internet connection. With the modified hosts file - IP address and host name of our mail server, the startup time decreased to 3 seconds to startup. I also changed the bindings in the registry to have IP first in the binding order. However in a couple of our networks it's suddenly taking 30-40 seconds to startup Outlook after the login. One other thing, from the networks I'm having this problem with, I can't connect with terminal services using the ip address of the exchange box however I can connect with the dns name. (mail.***.ca) for example. Thanks in Advance.
