Subject: [exchangelist] Unable to connect to exchange server

I have a problem in connecting to exchange server.After installing office XP
in a perticular machine when I tried to connect outlook to exchage server it
is giving me a error message that it could not contact exchage server.The
same user is able to connect to exchange from another machine.

The error message is as fallows.

   Requesting data from Exchange server

"Retrieving data from Microsoft Exchange server .You can either cancel the
request or minimize message to windows task bar or wait untill the message
closes automatically "

After that it says that it cannot connect to exchange server.All the other
network connections seem to be allright and I don't think it is  a problem
with office also.

This  happened to some of the machines some time before but didn't last
longer..Added to my difficulties  this machine belongs to my boss and I need
to sort this asap..Can anyone help me out..Thanks in advance....
