    That's kind of a broad question. We don't know anything about your setup.

    Are you able to access OWA?

    What are the settings you are trying to use?

    Are you inside the network?

    I am testing inside our network, trying to connect to ms outlook 2007.

    I can access OWA

    Did you setup Outlook manually or are you using autodiscover? Try putting the server settings in manually. Also do you have a valid SSL cert in Exchange?

    In autodiscovery, it found me automatically however it prompt me for the server username and password. I used mine and administrator and it still have the error: exchange not available and outlook must be online.

    Try a complete manual setup and see if that works.

    Could not complete by manual setup either.

    I did MS Exchange Best Practice Analyzer:
    Missing FQDN in ExchangeAB SPN
    Missing NetBIOS name in ExchangeAB SPN

    So I ran
    setspn -A SMTP/ TESTexch

    setspn -A SMTP/TESTexch TESTexch

    Still have the the same error.
