I'm having an issue with a VPN connection. All the mapped drives work etc however Outlook will not connect via the VPN connection

Outlook 2003 -> Telecom t-stick -> Exchange Server

Do you have Outlook Anywhere setup?
You don't need a VPN connection for that.

Agreed. Outlook Anywhere (known as RPC over HTTPS in Exchange 2003) negates the need for a VPN. That said, it should also work over a VPN if you need one for other reasons. If it's not then you've got a config issue - possibly with your handling of DNS.

I'm thinking it's the exchange server name (servername.domainname.local)

In 'Mail' I entered the server ip address and clicked check name, it found the server and changed to servername.domainname.local, but when outlook opens it fails.

Can the hosts file be updated to show (C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts)

192.168.1.1 servername.domainname.local

Or do I need something else with the ip address??

The boss what's Outlook, I currently have a shortcut for Outlook web access but he doesn't like it as much.

Banana?

When you are connected to the VPN and do an ipconfig /all, what do you get as gateway and DNS servers?

Modifying the HOSTS file should fix it, but you shouldn't need to.
