    Hi to all,

    I have an HP server with SBS 2003 SP1 and I got the following problem


    I have create an new user with an users template and create an laptop computer for the user

    When I logon the machine averything goes fine but when I start Outlook 2003 i get the following message: de naam komt niet overeen met een naam in de adreslijst if i translate this to english it would be like: The name does not exist, does complain with a name on the adresslist.


    I cannot configure my outlook for the exchange server. This is very important because we share some calanders with exchange for planning for example.

  • Hi Marco,


    If you are trying to setup a user on Outlook that has an exchange account and getting this error you should check the following.


    1. Email Account is NOT hidden from the global address book.

    If the email account is hidden then outlook will not find this when trying to confirm this user exists.


    2. Confirm that the email address is correct.

    If you are looking for mailbox MarcoB because this is your user account but you email is administrator@company.com you will need to check that the Exchange mailbox name is that same as you are entering into Outlook.


    To change this you will need to open 'Control Panel' than 'Mail' in Windows XP and you can modify the email account records from there. It is more than possible that this is where your error is.

    To do this in Windows Vista you need to right click Outlook and Select Properties.


    There are other issues that can cause this, but do check the Local Workstation Mail Setup first.

    Let us know how you go and I am sure we could help more if required
