OAB to fail on "outlook anywhere clients"

Consider the following
You setup a client as an outlook anywhere client. sending and receivng mail works, autodiscover worked fine, it found the user account and properly setup the user, but you can’t get the client to download the offline address book via web.
The server side had “publish oab via web” enabled, but it won’t work.

Go into your email policy, change the @company.dom to alias or whatever you use, such as cn@company.com. You don’t have to apply the policy, it just can’t contain blank space before the @ sign.
