I'm assuming your outside the LAN when you can't connect (it's the weekend after all) which in most places means that you should VPN into the office infrastructure, or use HTTP over RPC, possibly the problem is here, although If your webmail is not working then it sounds like either a password problem or a disabled acount.
Hi. Thanks. Yes normally I am in a remote office, connected via a hard ISDN connection which nornally works fine. When I travel, I use VPN and that usually works but now anylonger. I agree that it's not network or hardware related, rather an Outlook account issue.
Intresting comment though becasue when the IT guy had teh laptop yesterday, he was in the main office and told me it was working after he fixed some kind of log on script.
I'll leave the IT comment alone, but youre not far off..
Thanks. Happy holidays
