Outlook is trying to retrieve data from the MS Exchange server


  • I have a single Exchange 2003 Server (SP2) running on Server 2003 Std (SP1).


    For some reason clients (running Outlook 2003/2007) with shared mailboxes recieve the 'Outlook is trying to retrieve data from the Microsoft Exchange server' warning, clients with no shared mailboxes have no connection problems.  This happens when the clients are trying to access inbox folders or sent items and at logon, these delays can last for four or five minutes.


    I am relatively new to Exchange server and am finding this problem extreemly difficult to remedy, any help would be very much appreciated.


    The server running exchange is a Dell PowerEdge 1800 with Dual Xeon 2.8Ghz DC processors, 2.0Gb RAM, Intel Pro 1000MT NIC, 4x 10,000RPM 73Gb HDD's.


    If any more information about my setup is required please ask.
