Make sure that you are connected to the exchange server.

Go to File and make sure work offline is not ticked.

Presuming you are actually using an Exchange server and are connecting locally rather than using RPC, the easiest course of action would be to delete your existing exchange connection and recreate it. To do this go into Control Panel-->Mail and view your accounts. If there is only an Exchange account then close it down, reopen mail, view profile and delete it (you can just remove the account, which is best if you have other POP3 email accounts listed, but it will ask you to create a new data file before you do). Once you have deleted it go through the wizard and create a new exchange account.
Make sure you know your user name and exchange server name before you do any of this. Once the wizard is complete open Outlook 2007 and it will download all your email, contacts and calendars.
