We recently migrated from SB 2003 with exchange to SB Server 2008.  Since the migration, we have not been able to get our Outlook programs to connect to exchange. OWA works but we need Outlook to work.  We are running different versions of outlook, predominently 2007 and 2010.  How can we get Outlook functioning again?

Are all the services running for Exchange on the new sbs box?

This is internal outlook users?

Yes, all services are running on the new server as best I can tell.  And yes, we are internal outlook users.

Any errors when you try to connect?

Is the 2003 box still around or disconnected?

Can you ping the Exchange server by fqdn?...

To be certain that all services are running on the server run in exchange power shell :
>Test-ServiceHealth
If everything is OK you should see "True" for all installed roles

However its is probably a DNS issue.
Can you try to create a brand new user or recreate an existing Outlook profile?
Do you see 3 green check marks ? (Do not select to "manually" create the profile.)
Check if the client is using the SBS2010 as a DNS server (might check your DHCP settings)
On you SBS open the DNS console and remove any left-over reference of your old GC2003
DNS console
Also run Run the Fix My Network Wizard

I ran Test-ServiceHealth in the exchange management shell and found several services are not running. MSExchangeRPC, MSExchangeSA, and MSExchangeEdgeSync are not running... Our IT guy cant work on our server right now.  are these services  easily started? is there any reason they should not be running?  I am not an IT person... I know enough to be dangerous :)

Yes just run again in the power shell the following :

>net start MSExchangeRPC
>net start MSExchangeSA
>net start MSExchangeEdgeSync

Then run again Test-ServiceHealth  to verify that everything is now showing "TRUE"
The first 2 services are really required in order your Exchange server to function normally

It happens quite often that some services are not started when the exchange is running on a domain controller and when rebooting the server.
Please check here for this know issue:

The use method 2 and/or method 3 from the following KB to fix the problem :

Is the 'power shell' the same as the exchange management shell?
