  • Hi Dick,

    Ditto as Fiona said above apart from that check few more things:

    -machine you are setting outlook is joined to domain.

    -New user is created from SBS console not from AD.

    -Check network connectivity to exchange. try simple ping to exchange server by host name.

    -Check TCP/IP configuration to ensure you have internal DNS configured as primary.

    Thanks,

  • Hi Dick,

    Did you check in OWA? It would help  us verify if the mailbox is available.

    Besides, check if you can add other mailbox in the problematic Outlook client.

    Thanks.
