I have one computer in the office running Outlook 2010 that stopped connecting to my Exchange 2003 server.  I tried deleting the Outlook profile and creating a new one, but even with the new profile I receive he message "Cannot open your default e-mail folders.  Microsoft Exchange is not available.  Either there are network problems or the Exchange server is down for maintenance."   I tried setting up a different user and I get the same result so the problem is definitely with Outlook on this machine.

There are no network issues on this machine and the Exchange server is not down.

I tried to repair Office and I get the same result.  I tried turning off encryption and nothing changes.  The mailbox(es) can be accessed via OWA without any issues.
