Cannot connect Outlook 2007 Clients to new Exchange 2010. When setting up Outlook - Auto Configure finds user and email address, but get "The action cannot be completed. the connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action." when "Search for email@example.com server settings is displayed.
If I configure Outlook manually I get "The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action" when I try to open Outlook.
OWA works fine.

Weird that it doesnt find the Mailbox server yet I can cleary see it and manage it in the Management Console?
No customization has been done yet, I wiped the original install and started again.
Yes the Mailbox Database is mounted.
