Windows 7 Windows 7 - 7000 and Outlook 2007/Exchange

I am using build 7000 with Outlook 2007 connected to MS Exchange 2007 via RPC. For some reason now I cannot get it to update my inbox, even though I have authenticated to Exchange.....have any of you experienced something like this?
I am using Outlook 2007 with Exchange 2003 backend and it all seems to work ok. Sorry!:confused:
Maybe I am reading your issue wrong, but is the problem related to logging in when you first open Outlook 2007?
I am having the same issue...

I have an External exchange server. I access this server through RPC and have done so since 2005 and it has worked great. SO this is a Windows 7 issue. I am sure it is a small issue and has something to do with authentication. Either way I can not log in to Outlook but have no issues loging in to Outlook Web Access...

Thanks for your help!
