I am using Windows Vista on a HP laptop. I am trying to setup mail account in Outlook 2003 but as soon as I enter my user name and server name, outlook gives and error saying “OUTLOOK has to be online to verify the name”. Though Outlook is on, nothing happens. I tried to get some help on web and at one place I read that I need to be signed in on the network for making that work.
Well if it so, than why dint I required to do this in the past as I was using it comfortably since last 4 years by just starting Outlook and I needed to access our servers via an Verizon wireless card. Do you guys have any idea about this ? Can you please tell me if need to connect MS exchange server to make it work ?
