outlook 2007 want to connect to remote.myowndomain.com

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.

There is a number of reasons for this.

There was an issue that was fixed with Rollup 9 (and subsequently Service Pack2) for Exchange 2007.

There was also a recent security update that aided this and requeed changes to the authentication mode.

I have documented them here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/Outlook-continually-prompting-for-username-and-password.html

Hi Demazter,

thank you for that quick response. I am downloading sp2 as I type. I hope this is will solve the problem as the genie blog in step two makes me want to cry. I only wanted to do a simple SBS 2008 install!!!!!!!!!!!!! As I am seeing these autodiscover messages I am afraid.... any change installing the UCC cert will do the trick without going through that whole genie guys' manual? Any experience with the godaddy standard UC certificate?

Yes, I actually have an affiliate account with godaddy (check my profile).

Make sure you run through the Trusted Certificate wizard in SBS ti request the certificate.

Step 2 I have only ever seen once and it wasn't on SBS.

I would recommend start with Step 1 then try Step 3
