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.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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.
