Exchange Server 2010

I have a strange issue.  This is a new domain and new e-mail server.  The domain name is domain.local with the e-mail addresses being domain.com.  When I attempt to open up Outlook 2010 and let it auto populate with Autodiscover it pulls my name and e-mail address.  Once I hit next I get the following error

"The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable.  Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action."

On the next screen it gives me the following

Microsoft Exchange Server:
exchangesvr.domain.local
Mailbox:
=smtp:name@domain.com

If I hit Check Name I get this message -
"The name cannot be resolved.  The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable.  Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action."

I tried putting the exchange server IP address in the server name and it still wont pull the mailbox.  However, if I put one of the domain controller IP addresses in the Exchange Server box it pulls all the information and still shows the domain exactly how it's written when pulled from Autodiscover.

DNS resolves to the correct addresses too.

Wouldn't that need to be done on every computer?  I don't think this relates to my problem.

You are facing issue for all user or for specific user.

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.

Provide the full domain name in the popup box that asked for user name and password. Ex: servername\yourname.com

This doesn't relate to my problem.  My problem is that if I put in a domain controller's IP address in the box (not the Exchange servers) it populates that field with the Exchange Server's full name and underlines it.  Written the exact same way that it was before but works.  Here's a image that I think might better explain.  The first part of the image is the part that is auto populated

Please make sure the "Microsoft Exchange Address Book" Service is running on server.If not start please start the service and issue will resolve.

Or this problem may occur if the Outlook 2007 client computer does not have a default gateway configured.

Thank you very much.  You were correct, the "Microsoft Exchange Address Book" service was not running.  I got that taken care of and all is good.
