    Hi guys and gees

    Scenario is;

    one main server computer with win server 2003 installed is serving
    other computers as domain controller.

    Internet is distributed via DSL modem, with ISA 2000 on server side
    and ISA cliect on workstation side.

    Email accout is configured on server machine on out lookexpress that
    is being operated fine.

    There is a problem during outlook configration on individual

    Dedicated outgoing and incoming mail server is web based , worked fine
    as POP3 and SMTP on server machine.

    Any guideline,to configure out look on individual work station, will
    be highly appreciated.

    You mean you have a modem connected to the server, which routes (perhaps
    using NAT) for the workstations?
    What problem?!
    What mail server? One that you run, on the local network?

    Firstly, don't top post, it's annoying.

    Secondly, still no idea what the problem is. Either ask a question or
    just stop posting.

    On the basis of what you have posted, you don't appear to have a

    Simply point Outlook (or OE) at the mailserver(s) you want to collect
    mail from.

    You keep using Outlook and Outlook Express as interchangeable names,
    they are 2 different programs.

    If you have no mail server on the LAN use the mail server that the
    mail is held at, or install a mail server. Still have no idea what
    you're trying to do though.

    So the mail server isn't on the server machine, it's elseware on the LAN?
    Or is it accessed via the LAN out on the internet?
    Do the client machines have access to the internet via the server gateway?

    Yes Mail server is accessed via Lan out on the internet. Yes client
    machinces have access to the internet via the server gateway.

    declared for all the world to hear...
    So in the mail account properties enter the addresses of the mailservers
    eg pop.isp.com and smtp.isp.com

    Unless I'm missing something, this is your solution.

    After entering pop.mailserver.com and smtp.mailserver.com the error
    pops up as under

    The host 'smtp.mailserver.com' could not be found. Please verify that
    you have entered the server name correctly. Subject 'test', Account:
    'XYZ', Server: 'smtp.servername.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25,
    Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

    POP and SMTP are not provided by the ISP. That is web based email
    programme like we use any web based mail. Configured successfully on
    local server as pop.webbasesmailserver.com and SMTP.

    Users can access their mail addresses on web based mail service on
    individual machines.

    Error message appears when trying to access via outlook.

    And the clients can resolve DNS ie you can open a browser
    and go to a normal URL like http://www.google.co.uk

    No, not actually enter pop.mailserver.com and smtp.mailserver.com,
    replace mailserver with the mailserver you are using.

    Alternatively, as the basics of email seem to be eluding you, get
    someone else to do it as a domain with Windows server sounds like it
    needs setting up properly.
