Or maybe i am missing something. But i have tried configuring outlook using both the automatic and manual settings and continue to receive the error message:

Check the account to see if the user is Hidden from the GAL.  If the user is hidden, you will not be able to attempt a match in this manner.

The following link describes the process for adding a hidden mailbox without making it visible to the GAL:
