We are having a few problems reguarding the OOA in outlook 2007.
Ithis is my last resort, before I give up and call someone in.

We have a new exchange install,
We are using a ssl that we made. OWA work, Outlook anywhere works, OOA works via OWA.
Autodiscovery seems to work.
when I run a test e-mail autoconfiguration in outlook, here is what I get:

ProtocolExchange RPC
Server: internalservername.local
Login: myname
Availability Service URL: https://mail.myexternaldomain.org/ews/exchange.asmx
OOF URL: Https://mail.myexternaldomain.org/ews/exchange.asmx
OAB URL: https://mail.myexternaldomain.org/xxxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxx-xxx/..<<<....long string of chars
Auth Package:Unspecifed

Protocol: Exchange HTTP
Server: mail2.myexternaldomain.org <<<<<<<this should me mail.myexternaldomain.org....mail2 was temp.
Login Name: myusername
SSL: YES
Mutual Authentication :yes
Auth Package: Basic
Certifacte Principal Name: msstd:mail.myexternaldmain.org

Also  i noticed that get-antodiscovervirtualdirectory returns the server name, but no internal URL.

any advice would be great.
thanks

    hi Brian,
    i discovered your blog 2 days ago and i have to say; it is now the first stop if i need to research anything on exchange 2007.
    quick question about the first step: in my case we have a clustered mbx; would i install the rpc protocol on both nodes and the cas server as well?
    thanks for your help

    Ignazio, I just saw your first comment... you do not install the rpc proxy on the mailbox servers only on the CAS servers. when the functionality is enable with OL Anywhere the mbx will listen on port 6001,6002,and 6004 and the CAS will put those ports wtih the mbx server names in the registry for you.
    The only way you would put it on the mbx server is if you have an all in one box with CAS,mbx combined in a single server scenario
