I installed a new server 2008 R2 with Exchange 2010. I have a valid SSL certificate on gateway.company.com and i cannot connect with external outlook clients.

What is wrong? And do i need to enable Outlook Anywhere to use this? How can I enable this?

If you have allowed autodiscover to configure the setting, then Outlook will only connect on TCP/IP if it can. That is by design. HTTPS is the failover.
Is the server exposed to the internet? If so then you can test it with the Microsoft test site. https://testexchangeconnectivity.com/

This feature either works, or it doesn't. No middle ground.

Well, thanks.
@JBond2010: this does not work for Server 2008. Seems to be completetly different approach.

I tested for Active Sync:

 Validating certificate trust for Windows Mobile devices.
  Certificate trust validation failed.
   Tell me more about this issue and how to resolve it
   Additional Details
  The certificate chain didn't end in a trusted root. Root = CN=thawte Primary Root CA, OU="(c) 2006 thawte, Inc. - For authorized use only", OU=Certification Services Division, O="thawte, Inc.", C=US
 

The cert I installed is definitely correct. Whats still wrong?

And: how can I install Remote Outlook using the Outlook 2010 Client?

Well, I found the solution finally:

First Server 2008 R2 must have the RPC over HTTP enabled:

Second under Exchange Management Right Click Client Access under Server Configuration and activate Outlook Anywhere.

After about 10 Minutes, the clients can access the Server using NTLM authentication.
