I created an Acronis image of windows 7 professional and copied it to 3 computers.
Internet works fine, joining the domain server worked fine but trying to create an exchange outlook profile fails.
I have put the dns info of the exchange server in the hosts file in case it was a dns problem.
I can ping the exchange server using its name.

when I try to create the profile I get a message that " Outlook cannot log on. verify you are connected to the network and are using the proper server and mailbox name. The connection to Microsoft exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action."

I can go to another computer that was not imaged and the connection is there and I can setup a profile for the same user.

The exchange server is running on a 2003 r2 software.

Does Acronis automatically create a NEW SID? Like sysprep or SID walker.

I don't think it does.

You need to create the mail profile from the control panel>mail options and set everything up the way you know it is supposed to be with the correct server name in both the normal place and the proxy location if you have owa setup...   when it fails just click next and go through it. Set the profile as default.

Then open outlook and let it create the profile as usual.

For some reason it seems like it is not working but if you setup the profile then open outlook it will work.

Just make sure when you are logging into the domain if it prompts you to log in that you are using

Just tried to create the profile and then start outlook. Got the message that " microsoft exchange is unavailable."
Would not continue.
