WinXP and MS Exchange on Win98 - Help!

By Chris Tingley ·
Hi

We have recently purchased a new PC for our network which is running WinXP Home Ed. All the other PC's on the network, including the Exchange Server are running Win98 SE.

The problem I have is when setting up the email account in the Mail Profile I get an error message telling me that the computer is unable to connect to the exchange server because "Network problems are preventing connection to the MS Exchange computer."

The machine is connected to the network OK as I can access all the other machines, printers etc.

Thanks.

WinXP Home is not for corporate networks.

You should be using the WinXP Pro edition.

Then you can join the Windows Domain so you can authenticate to the server and get logged into Exchange.

I am using WinXP Home Ed with outlook express in office to read email in exchange server. You have to create an account in WinXP with the same name and password as that you are using to log on the exchange server.
