How to get Outlook 2007 OOF non-domain clients and autodiscover working

I have Exchange 2007 with a valid UCC SSL with a common name of webmail.mydomain.com and SANs for the internal.mydomain.com and NetBIOS name.  I have set all the external and Internal URLs for the ClientAccessServer, WebServicesVirtualdirectory, OABVirtualDirectory and UMVirtualDirectoy via the Powershell.  All Domain clients and Outlook 2007 services work fine.  I now have to provide access for Outlook 2007 NON-domain clients.  Its my understanding that Outlook 2007 is hardcoded to look for autodiscover.mydomain.com in order for OOF to work correctly.

My question is can I keep the common name of webmail.mydomain.com and just add a SAN for autodiscover.mydomain.com (add DNS entries and generate CSR obviously) or does the common name have to be autodiscover.mydomain.com for Outlook 2007 non-domain clients and OOF to work?

You can use the following option as an alternative way.

1. Make sure your Outlook 2007 client are updated to version higher than SP1.

2. Create a DNS SRV record with the following KB article.

With this method, you only need one certificate.

You should have added autodiscover.example.com to the list of domains on the certificate. It does not have to be the common name, it can be an additional name.

Thx for your replys.  I created the SRV and that works fine.  It appears that adding autodiscover as a SAN would also work so I'll split the points.

Thx
