I have been looking at this for I don't know how long now but I can't get outlook anywhere to connect. Outlook acts like its going to connect asking for the user name and password but just asks a few times and gives the error:
"The connection to microsoft exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action"
I have never set this up before so I'm probobly missing something. But here is what I have setup
-SSL Cert from Network solutions I can get to remote.domain.com/owa with no cert error.
-In outlook I have "Connect to Microsoft Exchange using HTTP" set with remote.domain.com, connect using SLL only, connect to proxy server that have this principal name in their certificate msstd:remote.domain.com, and Basic authentication.
- Outlook Anywhere is enabled with external host name remote.domain.com and authentication set to Basic
- I have tested the username and password on OWA just fine with no problems.
I'm using Exchange 2007, IIS 7, on SBS 2008 and Outlook 2007
