What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

What account is the db engine service running under?  It's going to try to connect to the endpoint under that context (my guess is that it's not running as a domain account).

Please review this: http://www.sqlsoldier.com/wp/sqlserver/troubleshooting-atabasemirroringerror1418.  It's a pretty exhaustive list of troubleshooting your initial error.
