Hi all i am trying to setup users to Connect to exchange using outlook 2007, everyhing seems to work fine using Outlook 2010, the problem i am having is when clicking check name it is not reolving and keeps comming up with a password box.

i have a certificate etc in place and this only seems to happen with 2007 clients

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

If the machines are members of the domain, then change the Outlook Anywhere setting to use NTLM instead of Basic

What happens if you hit CTRL+right click the Outlook icon in the systray and check Connection Status and test Auto Config? Do they shed any light?

Could you perhaps add an entry to the hosts file to allow your systems to see the public IP of your network/server, and then try to set them up?

Have you just done that now or had you done that before trying to set up the profiles?

Have you tried using the server IP in the profile setup rather than the name?
