Understanding the Autodiscover Service
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124251.aspx


As per the above link:
The Autodiscover service does the following:

Automatically configures user profile settings for clients running Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010, as well as supported mobile phones. Phones running Windows Mobile 6.1 or a later version are supported. If your phone isn't a Windows Mobile phone, check your mobile phone documentation to see if it's supported.

Provides access to Exchange features for Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 clients that are connected to your Exchange messaging environment.

>> By default isn't going to take-care of MAPI and/or Rpc over HTTPs configuration
I'm not aware of the POP3 and IMAP autoconfiguration of the Outlook profile.

I have all of this configured properly, but I still have off-site users that are on non-domain laptops and when they first setup Outlook 2007, they are usually POP. Any other ideas?

I think I've figured it out. The end users were not updated to the latest service pack and were unable to use the proper authentication.
