I can connect to the companies VPN and see the servers and folders. The company has an expired signed certificate. I assume this is why I can't log on to the exchange server. This prevents me from opening Outlook. Is there any way around this problem?

Are you using " Outlook Anywhere" (RPC over HTTP), or attempting to connect to the Exchange Server through the VPN tunnel? Does Outlook produce any error or warning messages?

Attempting to connect through the VPN. I looked at Outlook Anywhere but didn't understand how to do it. Seems like it had to be done at the server end.

After connecting to the company server with the VPN I get the error message " Server unavailable. The connection to MS exchange must be available and on line"

Assuming you can ping/contact the Exchange Server when connected through the tunnel, it sounds like it may be a firewall issue, do you have Exchange cleared through Windows Firewall? Is this a Microsoft tunnel or some other vendor like Juniper? I ask because I have Outlook 2010 on my Windows 7 netbook (and Outlook 2003 on an older laptop running XP-SP3) and both work fine via a Microsoft PPTP tunnel to our Exchange 2003 server with no certificates involved anywhere.Hal

(1)I already tried with the firewall off. (2) Microsoft tunnel (3) I get the following advise from the company " you won't be able to setup Outlook because your computer IS NOT part of the domain and Windows 7 will not accept unsigned certificate." Is this true? What if I use an XP virtual machine?

The computer doesn't have to be part of the domain, the VPN tunnel establishes your domain credentials. As to the certificate issue, I'm not sure, I'll have to check on that; my Windows 7 Ultimate netbook IS a Domain member and Outlook 2010 works fine through the tunnel, the XP-SP3 notebook is NOT a Domain member and Outlook 2003 also works fine through the VPN tunnel.
