Error while connecting to exchange server


Hello Martin,

I have read your concern regarding Microsoft Exchange Server. As you’ve said, whenever you attempt to connect it gives you an error message and you want this fixed. Is it right?

This error usually occur when you have a very slow connection, just like having ‘timed out error’ but you can try deleting the exchange profile and then recreate this on Outlook because it is also another cause of the problem. If this doesn’t work for you, you may create a new user profile with its entire components.

Another thing for you to take in consideration is the work around behavior or the synchronization of the program. Once you start logging-in, try to synchronize Microsoft Outlook while offline. Sometimes, unable to synchronize outlook whether online or offline causes this error.

This is also a new option for you to fix the problem. Restart Microsoft Exchange Services on your main server. To do this, locate “MY COMPUTER” and then right-click to it and select “MANAGE.” You may now look down for “SERVICES AND APPLICATIONS” option and on the right side, click “SERVICES.” It is now then your time to locate the program and once found, right-click then select “RESTART.” Once successfully done, re-open the application.

I hope I am in the right track of understanding your concern and give you a hand to fix the problem. I hope this information is of good help.

Good Luck!

Error while connecting to exchange server


This problem happens in Office Outlook when you cancel the Exchange Server logon for synchronization. The problem or error is triggered when you synchronize Office Outlook with the Exchange Server and then you work offline or restarted the computer or Office Outlook offline and then you press F9 to reconnect for synchronization and then you click Cancel on the Logon dialog.

If your next attempt doesn’t prompt you with a logon, exit Microsoft Office Outlook then disconnect from the network by unplugging the network cable at the back of your CPU. Next, start Microsoft Office Outlook. This starts Office Outlook in offline mode. After this, reconnect the network cable at the back of your CPU to the network port and then press F9 to synchronize.

The problem happens because Office Outlook has saved several information about the Exchange server name where it connects to during the synchronization process. This problem has been corrected in Microsoft Office Service Pack 3. If you are using Microsoft Office 2007, download and install the Service Pack 3 update from The 2007 Microsoft Office Suite Service Pack 3.

In case Microsoft disables this link in the future, download the Service Pack 3 update from Microsoft Office Suite 2007 SP3 on FileHippo.
