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.

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.
