Do my clients need to be a member of my domain in order to use Outlook in Exchange Mode?  I am testing on my local box which is not part of the domain and I am getting the error "The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable."  What do I need to do to get Outlook working in Exchange Mode?

Hi ryandale56,

No, you do not need the computer to be a domain member to use outlook in exchange mode.

But, you will obviously need a domain user account to log into the exchange server with.

What version of outlook and exchange are we talking about here?

Hi,

You don't need to have the cliebnt machine in the domain but the account you are using to open the mailbox will need access via ADU&C. By default the security for Outlook is set to integrated. You may need to change the Outlook profile security setting to "none"
