Outlook RPC does not accept username password

Hi i have set up Outlook over RPC with a certificate from the CA on the server (SBS/Exchange 2003). I have used the URL https://name.companydomainname.co.uk/certsrv to install the certificate. The certificate installs correctly I beleive because when i use https://name.companydomainname.co.uk/exchange i do not receive any certificate errors.

However when i use Outlook it appears to connect but it does not accept username@domain.local and password. I have the same issue on 2 setups, so i am guessing i am missing a tickbox configuration step somewhere?

Many thanks in advance.

I've never been able to figure out why there is a variation in SBS server, but it's always the Windows account _not_ the email address onSBS  HTTP over RPC setup
