Outlook 2007 Remote Access to Exchange Server

Q: Outlook 2007 Remote Access to Exchange Server

Hey everybody,

Im hoping someone here can help me out. I am running Outlook 2007 on my laptop and Exchange 2003 on a personal server located in my apt.

When I am in my apt. connected to my wireless, as expected, I have no issues sending/receiving email through exchange.

When I am on the road however, I am obviously unable to connect to my exchange server. I setup a VPN tunnel that works successfully and when I manually dial the VPN connection or manually put outlook into offline mode (so that it dials the VPN connection), I am able to successfully get my emails through exchange.

My question is, is there away to setup outlook such that I dont have to manually dial the VPN or put it in offline mode? I set the exchange server account settings to automatically detect my connection status, but it is detecting my network connection as being ok, even though the Exchange server is not located on that network and needs to be dialed in.

I know it sounds lazy and it is, but Id rather not have to manually do anything, especially if I decide to give some of my less computer literate friends email addresses in my domain. Id rather not use IMAP and SMTP due to security issues having to open the ports on the firewall.

Preferred Solution: Outlook 2007 Remote Access to Exchange Server

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

We have recently upgraded to Office 2007, and even more recently Exchange server. The problem is whenever we launch Outlook it continually asks for a password. On investigation, this disappears if the LAN settings are disabled. The problem with that is we loose internet connection. We do use a proxy server. As a work-around we can disable the LAN settings in IE7and connect to the internet with Mozilla using manual proxy settings, but surely IE7 and Outlook 2007 must be compatible?

Any solutuions greatly appreciated.

A:Outlook 2007 and Exchange server

What version of exchange are you currently running? 2003 or 2007? What's your current setup, multiple servers or all in one?

IE7 and outlook 2007 are compatible, but neither are very good.

Hi, we have about 20 users in our office connected into Exchange server via Outlook 2007 using thier active directory details.
On each users Outlook, I have ticked the "Connect to Microsoft Exchange using HTTP" box in the Connection tab of the Email Account settings which I was told removes the need for users to enter any login details when they open Outlook because they are already logged into the Domain which is tied into thier user mailbox.
The vast majority of the time this works perfectly and the users never need to enter thier login details when opening Outlook and connecting to the Exchange server to retrieve thier mailbox, however sometimes the login box appears over and over again on a single machine and even when they enter the correct details it keeps on popping up and not connecting to Exchange. After a restart or recreating the email account in control panel > mail settings this usually works again but it isn't exactly ideal.

Has any body got any ideas why this is happening or any ideas on how to fix it?

I think it might be that the user is losing connectivity to the Exchange server but both the users laptop and Exchange server are good spec and the network and domain is accesible from the users laptop while Outlook is asking for logon.

A:Outlook 2007 keeps disconnecting from Exchange Server

Here is a fix that may help from my coworker:

The customer was getting prompted to authenticate herself in Outlook several times an hour. The authentication never prompted when visiting internal websites and only prompted when in Outlook. The fix was to go to a DOS prompt and run “gpupdate \force”.

Can I use Outlook on my laptop at home, to connect to email through a Microsoft Exchange Server at work?

I have this set up on my iphone, so it must be possible?! How?!

A:Remote access to Exchange on Outlook

Might be possible depending on how Exchange is configured. You may be able to use Outlook webmail, which is outlook via the web. This would be the a quick and easy way to access your email through an Outlook like interface.

Outlook anywhere allows you to use an Outlook email client using an internet connection to Exchange. Also called RPC over HTTP.

If you have VPN access to work, you can simply setup Outlook as if you were onsite.

Your IT department will have all the info needed to configure outlook and connect remotely.

We've been having intermittant issues with Outlook 2007 "not responding", hanging up, freezing...whatever you want to call it....after weeks and weeks of troubleshooting...today I have narrowed it down to the belkin 54g wireless router.

I did this by finally taking the router out of the mix and could not cause the outlook 2007 to lock up again...thought it could be a lan cable...tried both cables in that mix from the DSL modem to the computer without the router and it still worked fine.

Hooked back up the router and managed to lock it up again...SO...all that being said is there a setting or someting on the router that I may be missing or something that someone knows about that I do not?

BTW, if this matters at all...we have a second computer that is also running outlook 2007 attached to the same hosted exchange server and it's having no problems at all.

Previously we looked at any problems with ost and pst files, ran Outlook diagnostics, etc to no avail - the router is the only problem that I could find.

The computer this is running on is an XP and all firmware is up-to-date on the router and all updates for MS office have been made.

I am desperate, if anyone can help, I would be most appreciative and would be willing to pay if someone can fix it.

A:Network issue with outlook 2007 and exchange server

It sounds like you have a flaky router. You might just need to replace it. If it works without it and you plug it back in and it breaks again it's the only explanation. If you have another router somewhere try switching them. Hope this helps.

Hi Everyone,

I have just installed Office 2016 Professional Plus and I am attempting to access an email account that was originally using Outlook 2007.

The email Server that I am connecting to running Exchange Server 2007 SP1.

Whilst I was able to add the account in Outlook 2016 as Outlook opens it presents the error messages below (in the order shown).

If anybody can offer any advice on how to get around the issue above it will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,


A:Outlook 2016 not working with Exchange 2007 SP1 Server

Exchange 2007 is not supported to work with Office 2016. You will need to downgrade Office or upgrade your Exchange server. I recommend you upgrade the Exchange server to 2016. Or swap to a full Office 365 solution.

Running an exchange 2010 server.

I have a number of users who's email will disappear.
Mail will return if you disable any type of sorting filter.
However will disappear again if you change folders.
This will effect any folder not just the inbox.

I have tried the following.

Recreating the profile in Outlook 2007
Deleting the pst and ost files
Adding new sort field and removing it.
Disabling cache mode.

I have not preformed an office 07 repair yet as did not think it would have any impact.

This is effecting about 10% of my users.

Ok so this probs isn't the ideal forum for Outlook and Exchange queries, but I know theres many skilled technical people on here, so posting on the off chance.

Anyway I run Outlook 2007 at work and I recently migrated from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007.
I like to secure my email communication as much as possible and thus like to make use of the free Digital Signature obtainable from Comodo.

Now my problem is when I send an email signed with my digital signature, a winmail.dat file is attached to the message. I have a few recipients that have their mail servers configured to block *.dat file attachments.

Reading resources on the web it seems the winmail.dat file is attached to RTF encoded messages.
However the winmail.dat file is attached even when sending the message in plain text when also signing the message with my digital signature.
I know I can just decide not to sign the message to problem recipients, but I never had this issue with Exchange 2003 so don't see why I should have to use this workaround.

Wake up Microsoft, not everyone in the world is running Exchange server and Outlook clients!!!

Hopefully some email expert will come across this, if not thanks for looking.

A:Microsoft Exchange Server 2007

Look up the Exchange Management Wizard (ExMerge). It still works with Exchange 2007, but you can't install it on the Exchange server itself.

That will do what you want.

You can also do it with the Exchange Management Shell (PowerShell) but I haven't looked up how because ExMerge does what I need.

Hi, i'm having troubles getting activesync to play nicely with an exchange server 2007.

when i configure the server source and put in the server ip, username, password and domain, then when i click ok i immediatley get the error:

No Microsoft Exchange was detected at the specified address. Click Retry to check the address again, or click Continue to configure your PocketPc to synchronize with this server anyway.

I know there is an exchange server at IP address i've given it, unless i need to forward some more ports to the server itself (which ones i don't know! I've already got 443 forwarded).

If i just click continue, select what i want synchronized and let it try, activesync throws an error message when trying to sync with the Exchange server:

Synchronization could not be completed. Try again later.

Support Code:80072f17

which seems to be something to do with certificates, so i got a certificate from our server (not sure if it was the right one!) and installed it on my pda, and still no joy!!

If anyone could shed some light on this, i would be very greatful!!

I have a Dell Laptop running Windows XP, Office 2007, and the Email Server is Exchange 2007. When setting up Outlook for the first time Originally it would pull the incorrect email address and settings (uninstalling Bonjour fixed that) now the correct email address is being pulled but it never seems to sync. When I hit Send/Receive the Sending finishes almost instantly but receiving never finishes. Logging in as anyone on this laptop produces the same result so it's not just my login.

Side Note*(Maybe important or not) Randomly a popup will say it's trying to sync with a different server that Exchange is not on. But I haven't seen that since I deleted the Archive.pst.

This is the only computer out of 72 with this problem on our network.

If I may break topic here, I'm looking for an answer on something. I currently have one server running Exchange 2007, on a Server 2008 R2 box. I have 27 users on the server, and we have never had limits on e-mail size...not for mailbox or attachment. I'm looking to start implementing both limits, but I'm not sure of how or the best way to do so. Any Exchange admins out there who can make suggestions? I don't know much about Exchange or PowerShell, so keep that in mind. I am the lone admin in this company, so admin rights to the box are not problem.

A:Server 2008 R2 / Exchange 2007 question

So, mailbox limits. These are enforced on the database itself and can be done on a per user basis.

Open Exchange Management Console, expand Server Configuration, Pick Mailbox, Find your mailbox database and right click Properties, click on Limits Tab. Set them here

For individual users: From Exchange Management Console, expand Recipient Configuration, click on Mailbox. Find the user in question. Go to their properties, Mailbox settings tab, select storage quotas, click on properties, uncheck box for "use database defaults", set manually per user.

Now, for maximum size limits, these are defined on the connectors. Open Exchange Management Console, expand Hub Transport, look through your receive connectors, properties, set Maximum Message size
on the General tab.
With respect to setting limits, I set a warning and then I prevent sending emails once limit is hit. You don't want to prevent somebody from ever receiving email. Once they hit limit and cannot send, they will clean themselves up.

Hiya All

Hope I have this in the right forum.

We are in the process of upgrading our Exchange Server. With that in mind, I'm looking for some input as to which would be better - 2003 or 2007.

Currently we have Exchange 5.5 and the database is reaching capacity (hopefully we can keep lower than capacity until last qtr this yr or first of next) so, the upgrade is needed. AND we are also on a NT 4 environment.

I am currently in the process of getting Windows Server 2003 R2 set up with Active Directory to meet that requirement. I also know Exchange 2k7 requires the 64-bit hw\sw.

Now, we have approx 400 employees here in this location (250-300 in this building / 100-150 in the building half mile away) and approx 100 in Berkshire, England. This building here is where all the servers are housed. We are connected to the building down the road via a T3 Wi-Fi and to Berkshire via T1.

Any Pros\Cons or reasons why we should or should not go to Exchange 2K7 that any of you can think of?? (right now I'm keeping the financial aspect out of the equation).

Thanks Ahead of Time

Hey all,

Not sure if I am posting this in the correct area. My husband has a problem and is texting all the information to me. He asked me to post here.

Running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007....Have a user whose PC was only able to load a default profile (which usually means the user or the PC could not authenticate to the AD domain.)

He ran through netwok ID on the PC, rejoined the PC to the domain and added the user ID when prompted. The user was able to load his profile with no problem and access all network resources except his Exchange mailbox.

When launching the Outlook client, he is continually prompted to enter his credentials which aren't accepted. When they try to log in to OWA, same issue.

This is occurring for the same user on multiple PCs and terminal servers. Tried disconnecting and reconnecting his mailbox in Exchange with no luck.

His Blackberry connected to BES 4.0 - can send and receive mail from his Exchange account with no problem.

He also added "I know I can always create a new mailbox and import the old mail into that but I am trying to avoid that."

Any thoughts? Thanks.

I've just bought basic Office 2007 and most of it's working fine. I've put it on two computers and whilst it's installed fine and is all working on one, Outlook is having a problem on my laptop.

When I open it I first get the little popup saying:

"Migrating Account Settings

Migrating Preferences

Importing User Data"

I then get a message come up saying:

"You can connect to this server using the network, or work offline, or cancel this login."

When I click connect the popup goes away then comes back saying it hasn't worked. I can click retry but it keeps doing it. When I click 'work offline' it comes up with the message:

"Outlook cannot log on. Verify you are connected to the network and are using the proper server and mailbox name. The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action."

I click OK but then it comes up with the Microsoft Exchange box and wants me to give it a Microsoft Exchange Server and Mailbox name. Thing is, I don't have one. I have a few POP3 accounts I want to set up. I can click cancel but I get a few more errors before it just closes down.

On the other computer it opened normally and prompted me to put in some POP3 accounts etc...

I've been looking around the internet for a few hours with nothing so wanted to ask your help. Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks very much indeed.

A:Outlook 2007 - why only exchange?

You can't have POP3 accounts with an Exchange account. You'll have to have 2 separate mail profiles. Outlook will need to be closed and re-opened to start on the other profile. If you install Outlook but just can't get your exchange working, ask your mail administrator for a setup file for creating a new exchange profile in your Outlook. It must be set on a new profile, not your current profile. To see what profiles you have, go to Control Panel then Mail.

Hi everyone! Today I got my information for my Email account given to us by our College. Because I rather use something like Outlook I setup Outlook 2007 (I've never used it before this) to automatically download my messages from this account.

When I'm in my inbox on Web Access all my messages stay there, and I can leave and come back and they remain there. HOWEVER, when I use Outlook, it downloads the messages, and once I receive them they are no longer there when I return on my Web access (I have to use it from certain computers).

Is there any way to stop this from happening? I know that Outlook Archives them, I don't care for this I rather they stay on my Web inbox rather then my Computer.

Edit: It's alright, I've manage to solve this problem on my own! If anyone else is looking for the solution Do the following:

1. Goto Tools >> Account Settings
2. Click on the name that you want to change and press the "Change" button
3. Click More Settings
4. Goto the Advanced Tab
5. Check the box that says "Leave a copy of messages on the server"
6. Click Okay.

And that should fix it. Works great.

A:Outlook 2007 + MS Exchange

For future reference you should check within Control Panel > Mail > Email Accounts - that your Microsoft Exchange account is set to deliver the mail to the mailbox and not a personal folder file.

Hey all-

We have just recently updated our user community from Office 2003 to Office 2007 and experiencing a strange problem with Outlook 2007. We are having instances where calendar items are "disappearing" off of people's calendars. I can check in their e-mail and see where they have accepted the meeting request and they say it had appeared but then the next day it would be gone. This is happening very infrequently. I checked with our managed provider to make sure that anti-virus was not scanning on the mailbox store drive as I had heard that sometimes this can cause an issue and they said that was indeed not scanning.

As anybody else had any experiences with this? We are running Exchange 2000 and plan on upgrading to Exchange 2003 in the next couple of months. Could it be some strange compatibility issue with Exchange 2000?

Hello. I can't believe the difficulty I am having setting up Outlook 2007. I setup gmail as my default mail server and went through the procedures but I can't get passed Microsoft Exchange.The problem is that it wants to log on to Microsoft Exchange when I open Outlook 2007. Once I open Outlook, I get the message: "Connecting to Microsoft Exchange--Microsoft Exchange is unavailable". After that I get the message: "Outlook cannot log on. Verfiy you are connected to the network and are using the proper server and mailbox name. The connection to the Microsoft exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action". I try to delete Microsoft Exchange in email accounts but I get the message: "You cannot delete this Outlook data file. Configuration information in the file is being copied to your new default data file. You can delete this file after the information is copied". Please help. Any assistance is appreciated. Outlook 2003 was so simple.

I recently got a new computer at work running Windows Vista Ultimate (final). With it, I got Outlook 2007. I really like the new interface and can see a lot of ways it will help me handle my deluge of emails more effectively.

Unfortunately, it's been giving me a lot of trouble -- While working in my Inbox, it will sometimes say "Waiting to update this folder" indefinitely. I can continue to work normally, but it stops synchronizing with the Exchange server, despite the fact that it says "Connected to Microsoft Exchange". If I close Outlook and then try to open it again, nothing happens. If I check Task Manager, I find that the old process never ended and I have to end it manually.

I've tried deleting my profile, deleting the OST, and deleting the whole AppData/Microsoft/Outlook directory... but after it synchronizes again for the first time, I have the same problem. Any ideas?

Hey Everyone,

I have a client who was on a hosted exchange server with two email addresses. I moved them to another host, which has pop mail. I backed up their exchange mailboxes, deinstalled outlook, reinstalled outlook, and then imported their emails from the .pst file.

Now I have some crazy stuff happening, where it is still trying to send new emails from the exchange account, won't log ino the pop account, and some other stuff. There must be remnants of exchange left somewhere. I took in a fresh laptop, duplictaed the pop accounts in it, and all works fine. So the problem appears to be within the desktop.

Any ideas? Thaks all.

Information you exchange with this site cannot be viewed or changed by others.

However, there is problem with the site's security certificate.

I view the certificate and installed it but still get the message

It is because your server is not using a valid certificate that matches your domain

Here's the situation: My college has just converted all student email accounts to the new [email protected] program. I've been given an exchange account to use at the website exchangelabs.com and apparently there is a way to set up Outlook 2007 to work with exchange.

Well the problem is when I try to set the exchange account up in Outlook the autodiscover feature of Outlook doesn't work. I enter my name, email address and password and then click next. Outlook establishes a network connection (green check next to that) but when it starts searching for the server settings it puts a red x next to that item and tells me "An encrypted connection to your mail server is not available. Click next to attempt using an unencrypted connection." When I click next the unencrypted connection doesn't work either! Arrgghhh!!! What am I doing wrong? Is it something on my end (Outlook) or something on the schools end (improper configuration)? I think the [email protected] program is fairly new (it's definitely new at my school...it was just rolled out Mar. 5) and I could find very little information anywhere! I can't even find a place to email Microsoft support about it. And, heck!, I don't even know if I would email Microsoft support or the school's IT dept!

Does anyone know how I can get Outlook 2007 connected to exchange labs?

A:Solved: Outlook 2007 and Exchange Labs

I think this was a problem on my school's end. They must not have configured the exchange server to work with autodiscover at first. I didn't do anything on my end (with Outlook) but I tried again a few weeks later and it's working now.

Hi guys,

Stumbled on these forums when searching for a solution to my problem...

The office I'm in would like a shared/group calendar displayed in Outlook, so they all know what each other are doing. If they were using MSExchange this would be simple, but they aren't. My original plan was to create a google account, and sync the GCal with each of their Outlooks, using the Google Outlook Sync application, so they can all add to it etc. What I didn't realise was that this would also sync all of their personal (or own work related) appointments with the GCal one. I thought it would create it as a new calendar in Outlook, but I guess not.

This isn't ideal, as a few of the guys use Outlook Calendar a lot, and having all of their appointments show up on everyone's computer is a bit of a pain. What they want is to be able to add to the group calendar "Bob - Out of office" or "Tim - Holiday" etc etc, rather than the specific personal events. I hope this is making sense?

I use a Mac so don't have access to Outlook to fiddle around with things, although I can get on it if I need to, just not for long periods of time. That's why I want to get a solution down before I go applying it to machines/fiddling and testing things.

Does anyone have any experience with what I'm trying to do/have any suggestions? All help is appreciated!

Hello out there....
I just started getting the following dialog box in my Outlook 2007/Exchange email when I try to click on a URL emailed to me...

?This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.?

I do not have this issue w/ Thunderbird or webmail, etc.
Some research seems to point to the fact that IE is not my default browser & I would like to keep Chrome as my default.
Any thoughts on this?



A:Outlook 2007 / Exchange email URL issue

A friend just sent me this info.
Anybody else experienced this & have a fix?

Had a similar issue when a user installed Chrome and then uninstalled it. Did you uninstall or upgrade Chrome recently? It seems that they still need to polish some of the uninstall code as it leaves some registry items in a broken state. It?s not that IE isn?t the default browser, it?s that the registry entry for the default browser gets mucked up by Chrome. Checking and unchecking default browser in IE or Chrome won?t fix it once it?s busted.

I would like to get my word to integrate with my outlook. I am running server 2003 with outlook 2007. When I click on letters and mailings in word I get the address book. When I click the address book it says ms exchange and then it says ms exchange is unavailable. Retry or work offline. I would just like to be able to insert contact into my envelopes and labels. My outlook is set up with contacts not a global mail list. Any ideas? This should be simple but it seems that nothing with microsoft ever is.
PS It now will show the global address list and it used to have the contacts listed at the bottom and I could click contacts and then use them. I have global address all contacts etc but not outlook - contacts

I recently migrated a customer from XP and Office 2000 to Vista and Office 2007. In the previous configuration, some users used Outlook 2000 configured with both Exchange and POP3 and it worked.

They now have SBS 2003 (which includes Exchange 2003) and 7 Vista desktops with Office 2007. All 7 users use the Exchange server email storage and internal mail. 4 users also have POP3 accounts for external (internet) email. The customer does not have its own domain. I set them all up with Exchange accounts. I setup the users with POP3 accounts with the POP3 connector in Outlook 2007; the mail from the POP3 accounts is downloaded to Outlook 2007 and stored on the Exchange server (no users have .pst files). I set Exchange server as the default account in Outlook for all users.

This setup worked with Outlook 2000—Outlook 2000 would correctly deliver internal and external email. However, this new setup is having problems. When a user with POP3 sends an email, it actually goes through the Exchange server which sends it out externally. It should be sending it from the user's desktop (from POP3) and not going through Exchange.
When a POP3 user forwards an email with attachments to a user without POP3, the message is returned as junk mail.

Users with both Exchange and POP3 want to be able to send an email that has both internal and external addresses; the external email should be delivered from their desktops via their POP3 while the internal email should be routed via Exchange. How... Read more
