I am running Windows 7 Pro with Outlook 2007 SP2.  I have two local area connections - one is the corporate network, the other is an external DSL network.  When I launch Outlook it fails to connect to the Exchange server.  If I disable the adapter that is connected to the DSL network Outlook can then establish a connection.  I ensured that the priority was given to the coporate local area connection via the Advanced Settings menu under the Network Connections window and for some reason Outlook still won't connect to my Exchange.  Any ideas?
