Outlook 2010 Not Connecting over Verizon 3G Network Device

My Outlook 2010 can connect over a LAN connection without problem. As soon as I attempt the same connection over a VPN-Verizon 3G device, Outlook attempts a connection and displays Disconnected.  

The mail server is accessible via telnet <ip address> 25.

The mail client raises a login dialog, correct password is entered.. then disconnect status.

Are you using Verizon's VZAccess Manager, or an app that tether's your phone.

 Is "Connect to Microsoft Exchange Using HTTP" checked?

Then click on Exchange Proxy Settings...  
under Connection Settings, is the https:// address pointing to your OWA address?

In a browser the url is https://<url>.com/owa to connect to Owa. In Outlook,  

Connection Strings... https:// is filled in with URL (not including the /OWA. (when I add the /OWA extension, the dialog complains the proxy address is invalid.

Only connect to proxy servers... is filled in a checked.
On Fast Networks, connect first... is checked
On Slow Networks, connect first... is checked
Basic Authentication. (BTW: I tried to connect using all authentication methods).

Sorry, forgot to mention to leave the OWA off.
My settings say:
Use this URL: <url>.com
Connect using SSL = checked
Only connect to proxy servers = checked; msstd:<same url as above>
Fast networks = unchecked
Slow networks = checked
Authentication = Basic

Do you manage your own Exchange server? Do you know if it was setup to accept RPC over HTTP connections? Check this page, about halfway down:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb691354(EXCHG.80).aspx
look for this shell command: ServerManagerCmd -i RPC-over-HTTP-proxy

Thank you. I am running the installation now in Exchange Powershell. I did rerun the CEICW (for SBS2008) and attempted to reconfigure exchange but there was no difference.

If this doesn't work, I will research connecting to the Exchange Server as a POP3 server and map the settings in Outlook as a POP3 connection.

I will keep you posted.

Thanks for your assistance!!!!

How about ports in the firewall. You'll need 443 for SSL.

Firewall is disabled and exchange server sits in the DMZ. I am perplexed... OWA is working now and I need to get on a plane. I will issue the point and thank you and maybe we can revisit this next month.

Thanks again.
