outlook 2007 want to connect to remote.myowndomain.com

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I just installed a new sbs2008 server this weekend with windows 7 and xp clients with outlook 2007.
During the weekend outlook clients started to ask for credentials for remote.myowndomain.com. Filling in the normal user credentials did not work.
On top of that outlook came with a certificate error for autodiscover. (the cert on the server is a selfsigned cert). Installing this cert does not help. It keeps coming back with the warning. Could someone please explain what causes the client to try and connect to the remote.myowndomain.com?

Thanks, Thomas.
