SharePoint site will not open with Windows Explorer

I have a client running SBS 2008 and I'm trying to export their files from SharePoint to move to Office 365.  I can browse to the site, but when I try to open with Windows Explorer, i get the following error,

"\\site.com@SSL@987\DavWWWRoot is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource...

I have tried this from two Win7 machines and used a standard user account and the domain admin account.  

I have tried a fix for the local Win7 registry with no change.

Suggestions on how to overcome this issue?

Have you checked to see if the users are added to the SharePoint Members/owners Group on the SBS?

Also how are you trying to access sharepoint?

Hello,

Why are you trying to use Windows Explorer for this task? If you want to export a SharePoint site, create a backup with Central Admin tools and restore that on the target site. Any copies of content you take with Windows Explorer will destroy important metadata.

When using a search centre, I'm going to show you how to configure Sharepoint's search to only return results from the current site collection. Very useful when using Office 365 with multiple site collections.
