    Hi, i just got my Vista Ultimate machine. Our office mail is hosted on
    Exchange 2003. I installed office 2003 and imported the security certificate
    using IE options into trusted root cert. Then i configured outlook 2003 to
    work over RPC. Everything worked ok. i could connect to exchange and read my
    emails using the outlook or OWA. However, this was short lived. Suddenly, i
    could not connect to exchange either the OWA or Outlook. When i try to
    connect using Outlook, it tries to connect for a while and then go to status
    disconnect. When i try OWA, it tries for a while and then gives error that
    cannot display the webpage. When i ran the Diagnose the Connection Problem,
    it asks to open port 443 on the firewall. I have another computer with XP on
    the same network and it works fine and connect to the exchange for the same
    ID using either OWA or Outlook 2003

    I don't know why it worked for a while, but I do know that the Exchange
    Server needs to be patched. Contact your IT Dept.

    If this doesn't do it for you, post in the Exchange newsgroup or one of
    the server groups. - list of MS newsgroups

    Thanks i have forwarded the link to my IT admin to look into. however, when
    i read thru the article it is related to editing function in OWA. The
    problem i have is that i cannot connect period. I can ping the server, but
    neither the OWA or Outlook is connecting.
