Posted on 2009-04-22
I am attemping to get Outllook 2003 to connect to exchange using rpc over https. I am getting an error UNABLE TO OPEN YOUR DEFAULT EMAIL FOLDERS. YOU MUST CONNECT TO YOUR MICROSOFT EXCHANGE SERVER COMPUTER WITH THE CURRENT PROFILE BEFORE YOUC AN SYNCHRONIZE WITH YOU OFF LINE FILE FOLDER.
Here is the environmental description:
Exchange 2007 running on a Windows 2008 Server
Two domain controllers Windows 2008 server a Windows 2003 r2 server
Internal doman - xy.local
external domain - company.com
exchange server name - zzexchange1
a certificate was created on the exchange server using New-ExchangeCertificate command from the exchange management shell using wxyz.company.com as the host domain for external
this certificate is associatred with all iis (is a .pfx cert that is installed in trusted authorities store)
Items of note, I get the authentication dialog and appear to authenticate, also, owa works w/o giving any certificate error.
When I created the exchange profile in outlook w/ rpc over https the user name if found and verified.
When I click on the outlook icon in the tool bar and select connection status I can see it trying to cconnect to zzexchange1.xy.local using https for mail and referal, then quicly clears those and tries several other connections using the machine name only
Then the error written above displays from outlook.
