outlook 2011 on Macbook Pro will not connect

I have a user who has a macbook pro with the Outlook 2011 software installed. I have attempted to configure the client but have been unsuccesful. I configure the client as exchange only and not pop or smtp settings. I receive the following error: account cannot be added. Note that outlook 2011 requires exchange server 2007 sp1 rollup 4. However our exchange server is running 2008 server. I have configured logging within the outlook 2011 client but when I check the log files there are no entries. I have done the config steps with domain/user  and password and without it but still no avail. Please help.

Are you running SBS 2008 ?

Windows 2008 is not Exchange 2008. I would first check the patch version of Exchange - the latest is Exchange 2007 SP3 with rollup 9. When you look at the version number of Exchange in EMC then it is 8.1 or SP1, 8.2 for SP2 and 8.3 for SP3. Update the server and try again.

Do you have a commercial SSL certificate on the server? If not then I would also suggest that as well.

What about patch version?
You should really be running a commercial SSL certificate on the server. The self signed one installed/created by Exchange isn't designed for production use.

We had a power outage, which resulted in our Exchange server rebooting. The client contacted me with the news that he is now able to send and receive email from his Mac.
