I have a customer who requires their exchange emails setting up onto their PC. The PC is not part of a network and is running XP Media center edition. The office version is 2007.
I try to add the account the normal way (by connecting using HTTP) and each time I go to "check name" and enter the password I am going into a loop even though I know the password is correct. After many attempts I am presented with the message "The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action"
I have tested this on my outlook (running outlook 2010 on a windows 8 PC) and it works perfectly fine.
