Connecting via VPN to Exchange Server at work



I want to connect to my work's exchange server so that I can get my
email in Outlook on my home PC...the VPN connection works fine...I can
even ping the exchange server by name or IP address...but when I try to
add a new email account in Outlook on my home PC it says:

"Outlook could not log on. Check to make sure you are connected to the
network and are using the proper server and mailbox name. The
connection to Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable. Outlook must be
online or connected to complete this action."

I verified the server and mailbox name and they are correct.

Can anybody give me some suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Try to add the exchange server name and IP address to the lmhosts file.





I have the same problem, but my connection was fine before, I could send and
receive emails in my Outlook over VPN connection, but now it's imposible. In
my outlook only try to connect with the exchange server but not possible, and
appear dissconect.
I think that maybe security updates in the exchange server are responsible
for the problem.
