Outlook cannot connect "Outlook must be online or connected" error
Posted on 2011-03-15
So ive done some research via google and i cannot find a solution to this problem.
Whenever i try to connect to my exchange 2003 server with my outlook 2010 client i get the error:
"The name cannot be resolved. The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action"
This error also occured on outlook 2007. I upgraded in hopes that the problem would be resolved but i had no luck. Outlook is setup for an http connection and the cert was manually installed by me into the appropriate cert stores. i have tried with windows firewall off, and with specific rules with the firewall on. No matter how many times i blow away the profile and start from scratch i get the same error.
I am running windows 7 pro with office 2010.
The exchange server is a SBS 2003 box.
Any help is appreciated.
