Microsoft Outlook: The action cannot be completed. The name cannot be matched to a name in the address list.

Outlook profiles setup successfully when the user profile and workstation is joined to the domain, but when the profile has to be setup from a computer that is not joined to the domain and on the internet it gives the error "The action cannot be completed. The name cannot be matched to a name in the address list." Exchange 2013 CU 13 is installed Outlook anywhere is enabled and authentication mode is set to Basic.

Do I have to look at other settings to make this work, as it does not give this error when joined to the domain?
