    Ol 2003 Profile Madness (Outlook 2003 on MS Win XP Pro)

    Hello Everyone -
    I have enjoyed this board literally for years, and certainly respect the talent represented here. Now have run into something I can sure use some outside expertise on.
    My company has just started using Office 2003. (Yikes!) I am in the process of setting up my first Outlook 2003 user on a traveling laptop. I have set up a zillion of these things in OL 2002 (XP), OL 2000, etc. but this is a new experience. Please read on....

    burosky / Karen -
    Thank you for the replies and suggestions!
    The problem was the FQDN - Outlook 2003 requires it, and the dialup was not able to resolve to it, so no connection.
    Used HOSTS/LMHOSTS files on the client, and now it can resolve and all appears to be well.
    Thanks again for the volunteer spirit!
