Outlook 2007 client will not connect to exchange 2007 using Outlook Anywhere Remote Connection

I have Outlook 2003 Clients configured to connect to Exchange 2007 using the "Microsoft Exchange using HTTP" option but cannot get my Outlook 2007 clients to connect.

I have verified my Exchange Proxy Settings:

Using On Fast
Using On Slow

Basic Authentication (also tried NTLM)

Any idea why 2007 clients will not connect, but 2003 will?

I would suggest the following to troubleshoot the server.  Follow the recommendations for fix.

Have you tested using https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com/

This can narrow down setup issues that need to be addressed.

Just ran the link and received a failure:

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Leave outlook on basic auth and remove the "prIncipal name in cert setting"

Do you have the Feb 2011 update for Outlook 2007 installed?

Mega, the principal cert is unchecked.  This is a fresh Outlook 2007 install.  No updates.  I think there is a server issue though...just unsure on how to correct it yet.

mrcannon...I have followed that and ended up with this doc: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124149(EXCHG.80).aspx

My goals is to only enable BASIC.

and running this command: Set-OutlookAnywhere -Name Server01 -IISAuthenticationMethod Basic

It then asks me for Identity.  What is that?
