MS Outlook based profile is no longer supported

We no longer support mailbox profiles that were created using Microsoft Outlook to view the mailbox and public folder resources. You can instead use ARKES’s built-in profile creation tool that is based Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1 to view mailbox and public folder resources. This new profile tool will help you connect to Exchange Server versions 2010, 2007 and 2003 seamlessly.
