You need to have an autodiscover record in your public DNS pointing to your public ip.

Create a test user and run the test in Microsoft test site. Run Outlook Anywhere with Autodiscover test.

It will tell you things a bit more detail.

In your PUBLIC dns, you need to have A reord for autodiscover pointing to your public ip. So, login to your hosting control panel and create an A record.

If you have a record configured, you haven't setup your ISA properly.
