Error Message - Exchange 2007 - you must connect to microsoft exchange with the current profile before you can synchronize.

Exchange 2007
Outlook 2010
I have recreated the profiles mutiple times.  Tried different computer. I also tried to repair the ost file.  It generates an error saying it does not recognize the .ost file.  Only 2 users are having problems.  It started when we activated their new droid phones.  Please help, one of the users is the CFO.  Thanks!

    When you say that you tried to repair the OST: Why would you do this? Just delete the OST file associated with the account and have exchange create a new one.

    Also ensure that Use Cached Credentials is selected in outlook.

    Accepted Solution

    I used the scan.pst tool.  I also deleted the ost. Neither fixed the problem.
    The fix I came up with was adding the Exchange server and and IP to the host file.
