I am trying to configure my Outlook 2010 client to connect to a newly installed Exchange 2010 server. I keep getting the following error message:

"The action could not be completed. The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action."

My connection settings are as follows:

Only connect to proxy servers....
On slow networks... (checked)
Basic Authentication (I have also tried NTLM)

Nothing seems to work. I have tried this on multiple devices, all running Outlook 2010, and trying to connect to multiple mailboxes. OWA works fine.

What am I doing wrong?
