Outlook 2010 Won't connect to server from remote location
i just installed a new Win7 PC at a remote location with MS Office 2010. Outlook 2010 won't connect. I have others PC's in the same remote LAN running Outlook 2003 and 2007 with no issues. This remote site is connected to the the home office between a SonicWall and a LinKsys RVO VPN box. There are no issues getting to home office network resources other than the one Outlook 2010 issue. I can ping the mail server no problem and have checked the hosts file. If I establish a pptp vpn tunnel from this PC to the home office then Outllok 2010 connects. If I kill the pptp vpn clinet Outlook 2010 remains connected. If I reboot I need to re-establish the VPN tunnel again. Any one have any ideas on this? The mail server is Exchange 2003 sp2. one thing that seems to be differnt is that in the past version of Outlook, the user name in the email setup resolves to the persons email address. Usually that resolved to their alias.
