Hello Experts,

I was trying to get Outlook Anywhere to work for a remote user who is not connected via a vpn but I had no luck and while making whateever changes I made to the SBS 2011 server now people in the office cannot connect via Outlook.

Existing Profiles in outlook are looking for login credentials, any combination does not work.

New Users get this error:

Cannot open your default e-mail folders. You must connect Microsoft Exchange with the current profile before you can synchronize your folders with your Oulook data file (.ost).

Please Help!

Thanks!

I just noticed that OWA opens, we can log into it but we cannot receive or send emails.

Emails that are created and sent stay in the drafts folder, they do not send and they say:

This message has not been sent.

I tried to send a message to a user from an external server and it never arrives. I get no bounce back message.

Even internal users that connect through OWA cannot send to each other. the outgoing email never move to the outbox or sent. it stays in drafts.

I just got the email to send from OWA. The Exchange Transport service was not started for some reason. It's set to automattic. I don't understand why it was stopped.

Maybe I have some other services that are stopped.

OWA is working OK now. But outlook 2010 on all the desktops ask for a password.

I think I fixed it. RPC Client Access was Stopped. I'm rebooting and testing another user.
Ok It's ALL Fixed.

Two Services were not started for some reason.
