Ok break it down a couple of steps - is autodiscover installed & functioning at an Exchange level first?

Can anyone / has anyone ever been able to connect via autodiscover

Hang on - just noticed that.

You browse to https://address.com/owa and get the autodiscover error?

I never got autodiscover to work. I just trashed OWA in the process.

I just found out what I did. I am a dummy

The authentication type specified on the OWA virtual directory was set to Anonymous.

It is working now

Thanks for the help

Sorry I understand now.

I'd remove and recreate the OWA virtual directory:

From the Exchange Management Shell:

Get-owavirtualdirectory

Should return something like owa (Default Web Site) <-- the bit in brackets may change if it's not on the <ahem> default website for any reason.

Remove-owavirtualdirectory "owa (Defualt Web Site)"

Accept any prompts

New-OwaVirtualDirectory -OwaVersion “Exchange2007¿ -Name “owa (Default Web Site)”

Give it a try on your URL

Once we've cracked this, I'll ask a mod to obfuscate your address & domain details. :)

Just the commands, in sequence:

Get-owavirtualdirectory
Remove-owavirtualdirectory "owa (Defualt Web Site)"
New-OwaVirtualDirectory -OwaVersion “Exchange2007¿ -Name “owa (Default Web Site)”
