Our current environment is exchange 2007; we have just installed exchange 2010 to coexist in the same domain to we can upgrade.

OWA works find on the exchange 2010 box and 2007. I am able to create users in 2010. And use OWA to send emails from it. But I am unable to connect outlook to our 2010 box.. I get an error message, "outlook could not be log on. Check and make sure your are connected to the network" I can ping my exchange 2010 box by name and IP.

Also when i tried to telnet, i was able to get through but when i do the command
mail from:user@compnay.com
i get 5.7.1 client was not authenticated.  But this user is able to log on to the 2010 owa and send out emails fine.

I am not sure what I’m missing can anyone please point me in the right direction

thank you very much

If the client is Outlook 2003 then you ned to issue this PowerShell command:

Set-RpcClientAccess -Server servername -EncryptionRequired $false

I had this very same issue with outlook 2003 and exchange 2007.  The outlook machine cannot resolve your exchange servers name.  (ie:  exchange_server_name.local)  I resolved this by listing the exchange server's IP address in the DNS listing for that system.
