Office 365 Exchange server name

I have a user that I migrated to office 365.  All ok on the web.  Autodiscover is good.
But Outlook 2007 will not automatically find the server settings.  If I run the Office 365 desktop setup, it comes up and says that I must manually configure Outlook.  PC is XP if that matters.    (I have done all available updates.  XP SP3 is on.  SP3 is also on for Outlook 2007)
If found documentation on how to set things up manually.  Outlook pops up with the box for the user name and password, but it will never connect.  I have read that if I have the correct server name, then it will hopefully work, but for the life of me, I can not find that anywhere on the portal.   It should be something like pod51011.outlook.com.  Microsoft has changed the portal around and I can't find the name.  Docs on the web, say go to admin, help, about, but there is no about there.
Any guidance would be most appreciated.

The podXXXXX server format is for IMAP/POP configuration. Here are the instructions you need:

And you should really sort out whatever issue you have with autodiscover, manual configuration is not officially supported.

Working on the autodiscover issue.
Here is the DNS entries that are active regarding the Cname recs.

Not sure why the port would not be open.  Right above this it says
"Tell me more about this issue and how to resolve it."
Here is the link for that.

This is on the MS portal troubleshoot domains:

Your DNS settings are correct

The DNS settings at your registrar appear to be correct. It is possible that the changes have not been completely implemented or that your previous DNS provider has not yet made the changes. If you are certain that you have waited long enough, check our support page to locate help.

The test results are normal, it will check for several autodiscover endpoints. The first two should fail, but the third one (Attempting to contact the Autodiscover service using the HTTP redirect method.) must be successful. The 3rd one is what will actually be used. Attach the full output from the test here.

Also, run the Test E-Mail AutoConfiguration test from Outlook (hold the CTRL key and right click on Outlook icon in the tray, then run the test) in order to compare the local vs remote result

Thanks for the assistance.  Sorry to get back so late to this question.  I believe Microsoft did something on their between Friday night and Saturday morning.  It would not configure Friday  night and did on Saturday when I had done nothing else.  All is good.  Autoconfigure worked on the email and did it correctly.  Thanks for the assistance.
