    After upgrading from Office XP to Office 2003 it seems like the outlook client fails to pick up mail from our POP3 server (Windows 2003 Server POP service) for any but the first account that's configured in outlook. NO error is reported but the mail is only downloaded from one of the accounts. Any ideas? thanks! Jahyen

Presuming your profile was set up properly - meaning, you're logged into the
domain with an account that has rights to that mailbox....
Can you ping the Exchange server by name (and get the FQDN in reply)?
AD DNS set up properly? As in, all servers and workstations should specify
*only* the internal AD-integrated DNS server's IP address in their network
settings. The AD-integrated DNS server should be set up with forwarders to
your ISP's DNS servers for external resolution. See

2.Outlook.MaiIteml.Move: The RPC server is not available


On the pc of one of my clients (W2000, Office 2003) I'm getting sometimes an 
exception when moving (Move) a MailItem to an Outlook-Folder: The RPC server 
is not available. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BA). The client has all 
the updates/service packs/ etc isntalled...

Does anybody has any idea why this happens? Any help our hints would be 
really appreciated! what is that RPC server thing?

Thanks a lot in advance,


This is what I do in my application (VB.NET 2005):
    Private oItem As Outlook.MailItem

    strStatus = "MOVE"

    If (oFolder.StoreID <> clsDocShared.GlobalDoc.MyOutlookFolder.StoreID) 
Or (oFolder.EntryID <> clsDocShared.GlobalDoc.MyOutlookFolder.EntryID) Then

        'Move it to the right folder: StoreID

        strStatus = "MOVE1"

        oItem = oItem.Move(clsDocShared.GlobalDoc.MyOutlookFolder)

        strStatus = "MOVE2"

    End If

The whole exception:
The RPC server is not available. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BA)

3.Exchange Server Service Not Available in Outlook

4.SBS2000, Outlook Exchange server not available

We have SBS2000 and after installed SBS SP1 ready for 
upgrade to SBS 2003, and upgrading one test PC to Outlook 
2003, we started getting outlook.ost file not valid 
Deleting the .ost file and letting Outllok 2003 recreate 
the files still complained about the file it created not 
being valid.
Deleting the Outlook mail Profile and recreating seemed 
to fix this issue, THEN, this PC returns "Exchange server 
not available or down for maintence" errors.
OWA works fine, indicating the IS and DIR must be OK. 
There are NO errors in servers event logs. All services 
stop and start normally. Outlook 2000 on the server can 
open the administators mailbox and the test PC's users 
mail box with no problems.
Testing on another PC via VPN tunnel, with a known 
working Outlook 2000 PC, now has same results, Server 
I have used the RPC RPINGC/S utility to test RPC from/to 
server and thats OK.
I dont understand that Outlook is running file on the 
server but not across the LAN.
Have reinstalled SBS SP1, Exchange SP3, turned off ISA 
and Routing, checked LAT and rounting. Server works fine 
for all other functions.
Cant find the reason for this connectivity issue.
Reinstalled Outlook 2000 on test PC, and CAN connect to 
exchange. Reinstall Outlook 2003 and same issue.
HELP! I dont have much hair left!

5.Run-time error 462 - server not available

I've written some automation code that open Word from 
Access to format a Word documents with data from Access 
tables.  When I run the application the first time, the 
code runs without any problem.  The second time I try it, 
I get a run-time "remote server unavailable" error.

I notice that if I press the reset button within the 
Access development area, the error goes away.  I use early 
object binding and set the application object to nothing 
on exiting.  What causes this behavior?

Somehow the remote server is not shutting down.
