    Outlook Can't see Exchange Server


    I am running the consumer preview.
    Created a new user for the Windows Live Login capability, but now cannot get outlook to see the exchange server.
    Likewise Outlook is not able to connect to Hotmail - error message saying the connection was interupted.

    Have uninstalled Office and Reinstalled.
    Deleted Profiles and started from zero for outlook - still nothong
    The Exchange sever can be pinged from this machine

    Any idea are helpful.
