  1. yes your answer got me in the right direction. it was a permission issue cause i was logged in with the wrong account. make sure you are a domain admin who is logged into the exchange box.

  2. Thanks so much for your blog post. This exact problem was occurring for me. I deleted the Exchange folder under my profile, and I got right in. I thought I had a serious DNS/Kerberos issue!
