Outlook 2010 - Out of office does not work

We are currently running Exchange 2007 and Outlook 2003 and we are beginning to migrate to Outlook 2010.  We were have AutoDiscover issues but they seem to be fixed.  We are still unable to open  " Automatic Replies"( Out of Office) we receive this error.

Your automatic reply settings cannot be displayed because the server is currently unavailable. Try again later.

From the Mail server Powershell we ran the following and the results are below

Watch Question


We ended up calling Microsoft professional services and they were able to connect and help us out.  They made a lot of setting changes and recreating the EWS virtual directory was part of it.  I was not working with them and the tech that was working with Microsoft does not have the steps that were taken.  I like to be able to post the complete answer but in this situation I cannot.
