We had a Windows 2008R2 DC with Exchange 2010 on the same machine being used for semi-testing purpose only.
The only domain controller and exchange server was degraded and a new Server 2012 DC with Exchange 2013 were setup using the same domain name testlab.com
Few computers have been joint to the new domain successfully and they are using outlook with Exchange very well.
The problem is in a Windows 8 basic version computer which is not a domain member, but unable to setup Exchange account on it. It gives the below error message always. I have tried lot of work arounds like opening a new mail profile, using a new Windows user profile, and didn't succeed.
"Cannot start microsoft outlook, cannot open outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. You must connect to microsoft exchange with the current profile before you can synchronize your folders with your Outlook data file ost.
I have tried creating a new local user account on this computer and tried using the same for testing this but didn't succeed also.
