Active Directory domain 'DC=boxernw,DC=int' has a NetBIOS name of

'BOXERNW0' and a DNS name of 'boxernw.int'.

root domain dc=boxernw,dc=int

Active Directory domain 'DC=boxernw,DC=int' is the root domain in

the forest.

OOF feature in outlook 2003 uses web folders publications, that's why it worked for outlook 2003. But for Outlook 2007 and there you use autodiscover setting to set up OOF. If you have trouble, maybe you can verify your autoconfiguration settings in outlook, by press <ctrl><shift> rigth click in outlook icon near the clock and select test-email autoconfig. Write username/password and check the results.

Maybe you can add a autodiscover record to your dns server for your domain to resolve autodiscover.yourdomain.com or autodiscover.yourdomain.local

You can use many exchange configurations if you have a public IP address for your exchange server in

Test autodiscover, test outlook anywhere, etc.
