I cannot connect CRM to Outlook even though it is installed

I cannot connect the client CRM to Outlook. I asked a lot of people about this problem. The CRM has been installed successfully for Outlook for offline and online use. Everything else was working just fine but every time the connection is configured, the connection would fail and giving out the error:

“There is a problem communicating with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM server. The server might be unavailable. Try again later. If the problem persists, contact your system administrator.”

I have no idea what to do, so please help.

To resolve this issue, you should try the following:

1. Try to install on another computer without the CRM Outlook and see if it will fix the issue.

2. Launch the CRM Online Support issue. Microsoft CRM Support can track the error and this should be comprised on your CRM Online subscription because you are using CRM online.

3. Instead of using the CRM Online on the server url, paste the URL directly from their organization page. This way, it will be easy to get the URL when user logged in the CRM through Internet Explorer and then copy the URL from your browser.
