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.

In Outlook,
File - - > 
Account Settings - - > 
Account Settings - - > 
Highlight Exchange Account - - > 
Change... - - > 
More Settings - - > 
Connection Tab - - > 
Outlook Anywhere section - - >
 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.
