Hi.  We have exchange 2010 running on a 2008 (64 bit) server.   I have configured outlook anywhere in exchange.

I have tested it successfully on 2 windows 7 machines running outlook 2010.  

It will NOT connect on 2 windows 8 machines running outlook 2010. It just reads "outlook must be online or connected etc...."

Does anyone know why this is?  Very frustrated.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I didn't write any new policies.  should I check the default ones?  I believe that IPV6 is enabled on the server.

What would be the difference between office 2010 in a windows 7 env instead of a windows 8 env?

Hi. I figured it out.  In windows 7 the server name and the public name you put into exchange over https is the same like mail.contoso.com.   In windows 8 the server name is the fqdn of the actual box and then the public name goes into the https settings.
