I have an Exchange Server 2010 running on a Windows Server 2008 R2 in a test environment. It's up, and running without incident. I have a laptop running Vista Business on which I installed Office Professional 2010. When I open Outlook to configure the Exchange mail account on the server, it finds the account and sets it up in Outlook with no problems.
Here is where the problem comes in. When I open Outlook, I get the following error evry time:
'Cannot open your default email folders. You must connect to Microsoft Exchange with the current profile before you can synchronize your folders with your Outlook data file (.ost).'
I have been all over the internet, and tried just about everything that was suggested (deleted the .ost, deleted the profile, etc., just to name 2 of about a dozen suggestions I found out there) and nothing has worked.
I'm at my wits end over this, so I'm hoping somebody can shine some new light on the issue for me. It would be very much appreciated.
