: My Win2K OS system crashed the weekend.
: Now I need to redo MS Exchange. But
: I get this messge:
: On the General tab, type the name of your server in the
: Microsoft Exchange Server box. If you do not know the
: name of your server, see your administrator.
: How do I find the MS Exchange Server? Anyone?


Are you talking about setting up Outlook again on a desktop system? If so,
then you can find out the name of your Exchange server by following the
instructions ("contact the administrator")

The "name" of the exchange server needs to be some kind of resolvable name
(eg NetBIOS or FQDN) that points to an Exchange server that hosts your
mailbox. If you do not know what this is, you should speak to your admin -
we will not know what it is. The name is nothing more than any other name:
eg a webserver, fileserver or an FTP server name - but we don't know the
names of your webservers, fileservers or FTP servers either... :-)
