Outlook Anywhere doesn't work for new laptop


Outlook anywhere is working for all users on other laptops. We purchased a new Lenovo X1 Carbon laptop. I'm trying to setup Outlook anywhere on the new laptop but it does not connect and it keeps prompting me for the username and password. The laptop has Outlook 2010 installed which is the same as the other devices. The Exchange server is version 2007. I have ran the test on https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com from the laptop and got the following results:

      Testing Outlook connectivity.
       The Outlook connectivity test completed successfully.

The odd thing is that I have setup the user on a different laptop and it works flawlessly. I have uninstalled the antivirus and disabled the firewall. I tried running outlook.exe /rpcdiag from the laptop and got the same result. I have downloaded and installed all critical updates. I tried setting up a different user on the laptop and that doesn't work either. I have removed all saved credentials in the Credential Manager. OWA does work on the laptop. I have completed all testing and troubleshooting outside the office. Why is only this laptop unable to authenticate?

Since the laptop is new:

1. You can call Lenovo Support under warranty and ask them why?
2. Run Lenovo System Update and update drivers. "New" laptops often have older drivers because they have been in a warehouse.
3. Run Windows Update and be sure all Critical and Recommended updates have been done.

What you want to run should run on any working platform.

Hi John,

Thank you for your reply.  I have run the Lenovo system update and updated all drivers.  I have run Windows update and installed all critical and recommended updates. Still not working.

Thank you,

I suggest you now contact Lenovo support to see if they can help.

Something that might work is to use Software Rendering in IE Advanced Options and then make sure Adobe Flash is up to date (only if Windows 7)

Additionally, I have created a new user on the laptop and that did not work either.

You really should contact Lenovo Support. Outlook and Outlook Anywhere work on any reasonable computer. I only use Lenovo computers for clients and all this stuff works. So give them a call.

Also look in Programs and Features for Lenovo Software you may not need and uninstall it (Password, Reach, Share and such like). Drivers and such like are fine of course.

Since the laptop works in every other aspect and the Lenovo system diagnostics reports no errors I highly doubt Lenovo support is going to be any help. I tried changing the software rendering and that didn't work. Since this is Outlook Anywhere using the Outlook 2010 client adobe flash would have no effect.

Then the only other thing you can do now is attempt a Windows Repair Install or backup and reimage. Since the machine is new, a proper reimage and setup again is probably worthwhile for the long haul. You have done everything else.
