Automatic reply settings in Outlook 2010 aren't displaying because server is unavailable

Hi all,

When attempting to set up an automatic out-of-office reply in Outlook 2010, the program stalls and then sends this message:

"Your automatic reply settings cannot be displayed because the server is unavailable. Try again later"

The server is fully functional, and this message is not appearing for any other computers linked to the server. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

Thanks.

Seems the machine cant find Autodiscover either disabled through Registry, Hostfile hardcoded or NIC issue

hosts file checks out ok, nothing strange entered just localhost and 127.0.0.1

I'm not sure where to check in the registry regarding autodiscover

We tried updating to office 2010 sp1 but that did not seem to fix the issue

connection settings in IE are set to automatically obtain as we have no proxy server on our network but the issue is still occuring

We were unable to resolve the issue and ended up just setting up a rule in the rules and alerts section.  

However, any other insight into the problem would be greatly appreciated.
