Outlook 2007 needs BT proxy server address to access MS Exchange 2010 server and prevent sync errors

I have been through many sites and it transpires that using outlook 2007 to access an exchange server (2010) gives errors on syncing the offline address book where it just hangs on a send/receive.

 

MS know this is an issue and the only real workaround is to specify a Proxy server in the browser settings to allow access.

 

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939765

 

The microsoft instructions are;

1.Start Internet Explorer, click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
2.On the Connections tab, click LAN settings.
3.Click to select the Bypass proxy server for local addresses check box, and then click Advanced.
4.Type the FQDN of the Exchange 2007 CAS server, and then click OK.
5.Restart Outlook.

 

All fine and good, but a proxy server address is required and I cannot find one for BT anywhere. Surely these must exist?

 

Any help appreciated as I do not want to have the expense of upgrading to outlook 2010 which 'may' work.

 

Thanks
