Changing client auth type in exchange 2010

Hi chaps,

We have an exchange 2010 server and it's outlook-anywhere has been set up to use basic authentication. The Outlook clients are autoconfigured to use Outlook Anywhere using Basic authentication. In Exchange 2007 you could specify both basic and NTLM, however in 2010 you seem to only be able to specify NTLM *or* basic.

This is the output of get-outlookanywhere (chopped off on the right hand side in case you are wondering);

RunspaceId                 : 32eb15b8-c829-48fe-af20-b68c2faa8d42

If we change this to NTLM will it effect any of the mobile phones we have out there ? (mainly iPhones) and will Outlook auto-detect the change or will we need to update each one manually to use NTLM rather than basic (theres about 100 or so).

one note: in Exchange 2007 you can choose either NTLM or Basic same as in Exchange 2010,
changing it to NTLM will no affect mobile phones since they use the EWS

Will we need to up date the Outlook clients manually or will that change be picked up using autconfigure?
