The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is Unavailable

Hi All, I'm a trying to set up Exchange Server 2003, but every time my only
client machine tries to connect using Outlook XP it hangs and then displays
"The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is Unavailable". If I turn
off the Windows Firewall on the server it connects fine. So I'm figuring I
need to open some more ports on the firewall, but I don't no which ones to
open. Here's the current list

C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllhost.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntfrs.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\scshost.exe
C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\emsmta.exe
File and Printer Sharing
C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\mad.exe
Port 110 TCP
Port 123 UDP
Port 135 TCP
Port 137 TCP
Port 143 TCP
Port 25 TCP
Port 25 UDP
Port 3268 TCP
Port 3269 TCP
Port 389 TCP
Port 389 UDP
Port 42424 TCP
Port 464 TCP
Port 464 UDP
Port 53 TCP
Port 53 UDP
Port 636 TCP
Port 67 UDP
Port 80 TCP
Port 8098 TCP
Port 8099 TCP
Port 88 TCP
Port 88 UDP
Remote Desktop
C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\srsmain.exe
C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\store.exe

Many Thanks
Neal

Hmmm - what's the reason you're using the Windows Firewall on your server?
Do you have a good firewall appliance between your network & the internet?
Don't rely on Windows for that.

You might have more luck posting in microsoft.public.exchange.admin. Mention
whether your Exchange server is a member server or DC.
