Reinstalled Exchange Client Access now Outlook Anywhere isn't working

Platform: Windows SBS 2011 / Exchange 2010 SP2 Rollup 1

Background: I had a completely separate issue on our server yesterday and during my troubleshooting I reinstalled the Exchange Client Access. It turned out that it wasn't actually necessary and now I have lost Outlook Anywhere functionality.
 
The digital certificate is fine and I can access OWA without certificate prompt and so forth. Outlook Anywhere is enabled in Exchange Client Access. I have rebooted the server. Still no joy!
 
Outlook client settings are 100% correct (I have set this up before). The issue definitely lies on the server and reinstalling Exchange Client Access has certainly messed things up.

I really think I'm missing something obvious and I hope you can help.

Yeah I have used that tool and it indicates that there is a certificate issues (there isn't): results: The SSL certificate failed one or more certificate validation checks. Certificate trust validation failed.
 
I'm not too concerned about this as I have used the servers self-assigned certificate rather than buying one. I have done this a hundreds of times on other sites and it works fine but https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com always comes back with those Certificate trust validation failed results.
 
Since I have established that it is not a certificate issue... it must be something else. And I'm certain it has something to do with reinstalling the Exchange Client Access

I am receiving lots of these in the Event Log:
 
The Module DLL 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Bin\kerbauth.dll' could not be loaded due to a configuration problem. The current configuration only supports loading images built for a x86 processor architecture.
 
This appears to be the issue. Anyone know how to fix?

At what point does the OA fail, is it not accepting credentials or accepting them and logging in but stuck on trying to connect, or just disconnected from the off?

Before I troubleshooted the .dll files earlier it was freezing when you click on "check name" whilst configuring the Outlook client. The errors in the event log followed.

Now however, when i "check name" I immediately receive the error;

Outlook cannot log on. Verify you are connected to the network and are using the proper server and mailbox name. The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable...blah blah
