    Is this an error you get when accessing your exchange server or when you open Outlook 2k ? Also where is this echange server located. Is it something you have access to or is it a company's server?
    More info is needed

    On each of your workstations you need to make sure your network settings are correct on the NICs.

    Just because you can surf the internet does not mean they are correct.

    Set your NIC to go to a preferred DNS address and make sure that DNS address is the address of your server. This forces the command to go directly to the exchange server to resolve the name you are sending.
