I would vote for removing OA, RPC and then install RPC and enable OA and try again
when you run
get-outlookanywhere | fl extern*

does that name match a value on your certificate


when i run the command get-outlookanywhere | fl extern*

 from the command shell i it does nothing just goes to the next line
i'm with busbar
remove outlook anywhere and reinstall rpc

right-click on the cas server in the emc and disable outlook anywhere
server manager and remove rpc nad reinstall
