Open in new window


When I configure Outlook 2010 i get the message: the connection to MS exchange is not available. Outlook must be online...

In the firewall I see that my Outlook still wants to connect via port 135 (this attempt is blocked because only port 443 is open for the outside).


Any thoughts on this matter?

135 port is required for exchange connectivity either you have configured RPC/HTTPS connection. it require ti initiate the connection with server.
