MY USERS ARE LOOSING EMAIL ONE BY ONE IN

A little more information would help. Please also don't use all capital letters - it's "shouting" and it's hard to read. When you re-create the profile, are you logged in as the user? If so, does it allow you to "check mailbox" on the server? Are you getting any error messages? What exactly happens when they try to get their mail? When you create a new mailbox for a different user can the new user access it? Are these 4 users separated on the physical network? (Try putting an lmhosts file on their workstations, if so.) Does the mailbox assignment in Exchange Administrator show the correct user account? If it shows "unknown" and won't let you put the right user in, try rebooting the logon server.

thank you all for your help, one thing i forgot to mention was i have a novel server 5 with client 32. i uninstalled the cleint 32 and the exchange was able to be authenticated. i downloaded the latest client today. i made this break through last friday. thank you all for your efforts but no cigar this time. if there is a next time please feel free to post an answer and i will definelty reward the aloted points. i think some folks dont reward points when they post aquestion, just scavenge the answeres then keep what they like and sya the heck with the points. not it, i beleive help should be rewareded. i wish i could give a nominal point for all your efforts.
thanks agian

Go to the client machines and find and remove all .ost files located on their local drive and then remapp the outlook settings to look on the mapped network drive for exchange for the ost file

We too had a similar problem. It has nothing to do with the kind of servers. Usually a log on script in created as profile which can be local or roming. If your users are trying to access their mail with different machines and have local profile then their mail will begin disappering. Please check to see what type of profiles you created.

By Default win98 does not come with Fax SOftware. YOu will have to get a third party software. WIth Outlook 2000. You will get Symantec Fax Starter Edition. This you can install and it should work fine. The trick to sending fax is to use outlook. inthe to:
option type fax@xxxxxxx. Where x would be the fax number you are trying to dial. this
will come back asking for a confirmation of the fax number and you can then send it. you will have to put the document to be sent as an attachment.
