Security Alerts when opening Outlook 2007 on Exchange 2003 any idea why?

Hi Guys,
I have one Outlook 2007 client on an Exchange 2003 environment that start complaining about a security alert error. I noticed the error is for autosicover.domain.org even though the internal doamin is .local I am not sure if thats got anything to do with it or not.

Its only one client among many so I am not sure this is the Exchange 2003 or IIS or SSL for that sake. I read Sambee's portal, but not sure this is the case here.

I am attaching a snapshot of the error. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
SP.

is the exchange server address in server properties on the client typed in as .com instead of .local
hosts file redirecting the name to a different ip?
have you tried to install the certificate on the client to see if error goes away?

OWA 2007 generally uses autodiscover to find the Exchange server, but this is mainly for Exchange 2007.  If it were exchange 2007, you would get a UCC certificate (which allows for multiple domains under one certificate)  I assume you could purchase a UCC certificate, and install it for Exchange 2003.  Did you manually configure Autodiscover for Exchange 2003? I didn't know this was possible.

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

No I didnt do anything, this single client started acting up. All the rest are fine accessing the EXCH 2K3.

Weird.

Installing a UCC certificate would definitely solve the problem. http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2007/04/30/438249.aspx

That would solve the problem immediately, but I've never seen outlook try to auto discover without an exchange 2007 server present... or in a mixed environment.

in your DNS do you have an autodiscover.yourdomain.com?

There is always a first when a MS product is involved :)


I will check the DNS to be on the safe side.

I'm still really stumped... Autodiscover... Autodiscover should only work or try to find a server if you're using Exchange 2007...

No solution here, I am thinking of buying an official SSL and implement it hoping this will solve the problem.

Any help on how to revoke the existing key and implement a new one would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
