Some of the DSL connections and VPN (IPSec) don't play well together.  It's
not an Outlook problem per se. 

You need to troubleshoot the VPN client the same as you would any other
network connection: i.e. can you ping successfully?  RPCPing?  Latency
checks (trace route)?  Blocking any traffic types after VPN termination?
UDP? Etc.

You'll notice below that the person who originally posted had issues with
tracert timing out after 12 hops.  Because they mentioned there were 18
total, it leads me to believe that it was eventually successful, but why
would you expect the application to show anything other than 'retrieving
data' if it can't connect? See above for some of the checks before diving
into the application.

Actually I am having a similar issue where we have 1 remote user on VPN that
receives that error message when trying to connect to the exch server.  Is
there a known issue for this sort of config with VPN?

Are those time outs through a VPN?
