I have exchange SP1 running on windows server 2008. This is an all in one server with the hub transport, mail box, and CAS all running. I am trying unsucessfully to get outlook anywhere working. Everytime I try to connect either through auto-discover or manual configuration I get a username/password prompt that never accepts my credentials.

Machine name: postal
FQDN: also

I have valid public SSL certificates for both and
I do not have a valid SSL certificate for but I do have a DNS entry.

I have enabled RPC over http proxy.
I have enabled outlook anywhere.
I have tested with RPC ping and it appears to be working correctly.
OWA works fine at:

I have redirection enabled so if you type it redirects to

I have read about the IPv6 bug and have edited the hosts file to resemble this:       localhost
# ::1             localhost      mail      postal

I have tested that the server can telnet to itself on port 6004.

I am stumped, can anyone help me?
