Backup >Exchange Server 2007 with Backup Exec 11

I want to backup a Exchange Server 2007 via Backup Exec 11, but when I select the mailbox server I doesn't show as a exchange server and storage groups are not listed.
The backup service account has full administrator rights, is a exchange administrator and its mailbox is visible and active.
MAPI is already installed.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
