Try a complete manual setup and see if that works.
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.

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.
