Autodiscovery Exchange 2007 - Outlook 2007

I have recently implemented an SBS2008 server with Exchange 2007, everything was working fine until the customer requested they change their reply address going from domain.co.uk to domain.com, this has now prompted the autodiscovery in Outlook 2007 to popup asking to connect to domain.com, when their email accounts in AD are domain.co.uk.

How can I resolve this?? can I turn it off??

the autodiscover service queries for a service connection point based on your email address (somone@domain.com means an internal query will search AD, externally will attemtp domain.com and autodiscover.domain.com)

is the issue internal or external?
you could create an srv record in DNS for _autodiscover._tcp.domain.com that point to your A record of domain.co.uk

you should be able to resolve this without a new cert if your DNS can host SRV records
