Hi all,

we are having a problem with autodiscovery and Outlook 2010 on a couple of client sites. Configuration is as follows: Client has local SBS server with 2008 and Exchange 2007. one of the users has an exchange account on the SBS server but also connects to another offsite Exchange server remotely via RTP over HTTP.

The problem  is Autodiscovery automatically changes the RTP over HTTP FQDN for the offsite Exchange server to the local exchange server ( instead of and then the remote exchange connection does not work.

Any ideas? Can we just disable autodiscovery? I would rather not as i assume it will cause problems for all local exchange users.

autodiscover derives those from the outlook anywhere configuration, looks like you have configure as the public name when configuring RPC/HTTPs

I have disabled outlook anywhere for the moment, rather than change the public name to that off the other exchange server (located at another site) looks like it is working.
