Outlook 2007 / Exchange 2007 - Autodiscover problems

I am having problems with my Outlook clients connecting to our exchange server.  They keep on defaulting to Protcol: Exchange RPC, Exchange HTTP.

Even when I check it off they keep connecting in this way.

My outlook 2007 keeps getting configured to use Outlook Anywhere..

I dont want it nor do I need it to use Outlook anywhere.. Whenever I uncheck it.. and open Outlook.  It keeps getting set back to that.. Not only that but It also keeps prompting our users for a username and password.  It's really messed up it seems.

I was able to get the system to quit defaulting to Outlook Anywhere on the 2007 clients, however.. the users that do use Outlook anywhere are getting authentication popups like crazy.. Non stop.

Authentication prompts usually mean that one of the virtual directories isn't correct, or the name resolution isn't working.

Outlook will only default to Outlook Anywhere if it cannot reach the Exchange server using TCP/IP. I am pretty sure that by default it will configure all Outlook clients to use Outlook Anywhere, but it will not be used. You can confirm if it is used by holding down CTRL while right clicking on the Outlook icon in the system tray and choosing Connection Status. If the connection type is TCP/IP then it is not using Outlook Anywhere.

If you are getting authentication prompts with external users, then use the Microsoft test site to see whether everything is configured correctly. https://testexchangeconnectivity.com/

Before you sent this over, I had checked all the auth types on both RPC virtual directories, and reset IIS.. This ended up fixing the password issues.  I started this mess by trying to get everything to work through once cert without worrying about creating another iis site and a redirect.  I was able to accomplish all of that but then I broke a few things while doing it... Now everything is working as intended and I dont need a separate cert for autodiscover =)  I was able to use my main owa url for autodiscover.
