ill try,just says trying to connect in the bottom right hand corner. OWA works but has a red x on the certificate and doesnt give a right to install as its greyed out

You sure in XP the traffic is going through RPC over HTTP ?? Check again to confirm.
Left Ctrl pressed and left mouse button over the Outlook icon in the taskbar "Connection Status" on th XP.
As "jordannet" said OS is not a problem.
