i would use a tool like fiddler or winhttp to monitor the http traffic when you attempt to view your oof settings
this should show you where your client is going and what the response is from the server
You can enable the Outlook logging
Collect the OOFlogs @ the %temp% folder

>> you need to concentrate on all the HTTP errors/warnings there

For Outlook 2010:
On the File tab, click Options.
In the Outlook Options dialog box, click Advanced.
In the Other section, select the Enable troubleshooting logging(requires restarting Outlook) check box, and then click OK.
Exit and then restart Outlook.



Hello !

I tried to log the traffic with fiddler but didn't came to an answer!

The Ourlook log shows me the following:
