Connect outlook 2007 on XP to Exchange 2013

We just installed Exchange server 2013. We have some remote sites outside of our network so I have the external DNS setup mail.domain.org and autodiscover.domain.org pointing to an static ip that is routed to the exchange server.

On windows 7 with outlook 2013 we where successful in adding the mailboxes, but on Windows XP with outlook 2007 or 2010 we keep getting the credentials prompt for authentication.

We issued the certificates from our AD CA.

I reissued the certificate making server.domain.local the CN. Outlook promptes for username password, I enter domain.local\user and password, and it gets past Establish Network Connection and Search for user@domain.org and then just keeps asking for credentials.
 If I hit cancel on login screenIf I hit cancel I get this screen.

go to command prompt and do nslookup and type your exchange server name. Does it resolves with IP address?

Above screenshot show when you hit cancel it is searching for Exchange server with SID and not the proper name.

I am noticing that when being prompted for the password it saying enter password for domain.local\user on https://autodiscover.domain.org, maybe the CN should be the autodiscover or I maybe set DNS wrong?

I resolved my issue by digging into the wallet and purchased a DigiCert UC Certificate.

Mail.domain.org = CN
