Outlook 2007 "Connecting to sites"

I just setup SBS 2008 server.  One the workstations we are using Win 7 with Outlook 2007.  When we open Exchange we get "Connecting to sites" and it asks for username and password.  I put in the username and password and it doesn't work.  After I hit cancel it shows "Needs Password"' in the bottom right hand corner of Outlook.  When I click on "Type Exchange Password to Connect" it changes to "Connected to Microsoft Exchange".

Also, when I hit Send/Receive I get the following
Task "Microsoft Exchange" reported error (0x8004010F) : "The operation failed. An object cannot be found."  
This is the same error that I get on another SBS 2008.  I can't seem to make it go away.

Looks like the offline address book problem.

I've done this already

Exchange Server 2007
In Exchange Management Console, expand Server Configuration, and then click Mailbox.
In the Database Management window, right-click Properties on the mailbox store.
Click the Client Settings tab, click Browse, and then click the appropriate offline address book.
Click OK two times.
hmm.. are you using domain\username as the username?

It shouldn't ask for password for sites though... I am only using Outlook 2007.  It must have something to do with SBS server...?

Also, there is nothing in the RSS feeds
I've had the problem with missing autodiscover. DNS entry before, but it sounds like you're local.. although if you've got RPC / Connect to Microsoft Exchange using HTTP enabled whilst using internally then this could be an answer.

Not using RPC over HTTP

@chops_uk The following from the link worked for the connecting to sites problem.  Still having the problem with 0x8004010F...

Kernel authentication Mode

If you have all the above configured and you are still experiencing problems then the following procedure will more than likely fix it for you. It has been working a lot for me lately and also for people asking questions on Experts Exchange.

In Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager locate the Exchange virtual directories, if you are using Small Business Server 2008 these will be under the SBS Web Applications website, if you are not using SBS then they will be under the Default Website.

The virtual Directories you are looking for are:
    * Autodiscover
    * EWS
    * RPC
    * OAB

so for their email, I haven't setup their email domain yet because we are waiting on the ISP to give us a static IP address.  So at the moment their emails are all user@domain.local
I have tried to repoint to the offline address book, rebuild it, etc. and still no go.
