I have a mixed network of Windows clients on my network.  We setup Windows 2012/Exchange 2013.
The Windows 7 clients using Outlook connect to Exchange but the Windows XP clients do not.

I read some of the responses and have tried different things but none work.  Does any have a solution to make the current Windows XP clients work?

What are the error's when trying to connect.

What I'd do is first go to https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/ and run though the tests.

Also can you access the OWA site?

Things to check.

Host file for any entries for DNS on the XP machines.

Path for Host file is  %WinDir%\System32\Drivers\Etc

Also are any of the ports blocked fur UDP and TPC on the XP machines and how are they authenticating to the Exchange Server for Outlook?

Here is a refernece for Ports used by Exchange 2013 for the Client Access Server.

---Ran some of the tests and showed me that some of my port needed to be opened.
---After opening up the ports the only error i get is ssl error.
I do not have a certificate.


Also can you access the OWA site?
---Yes
