Internally you should be reaching to some SCP URL
use the test-emailautoconfiguration, give creds and then check on the LOGS tab to get the SCP URL

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

There is a mismatch in your autodiscover configuration. Please configure outlook anywhere, install the RPC over Http Proxy and use below commands to configure your autodiscover services.

Set-ClientAccessServer -Identity "exchangeservername" -AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri "https://exchangeservername/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml" -AutoDiscoverSiteScope "exchangeservername"

Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -identity "exchangeservername\EWS (Default Web Site)" -externalurl https://webmail.domain.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx -BasicAuthentication:$True

Also you will need to check your OWA, OAB virtual directory for internal and external url. After completing all these again check and post the result. Also you can test your exchange environment through

After some research I was able to find the a resolution to this.  It turns out that my permissions on the autodiscover directory was incorrect.  I needed to enable Windows authrentication.  Once  this was enabled, the test-outlookwebservices | fl pased the autodiscover tests.  The link below provided the default permissions for virtual directories.

Also, as a kicker,  The Outlook version installed one a test system would fail the autodiscovery tests.  However, on another machine, I have Outlook SP2 installed and this one passes the Outlook autodiscovery tests.

I appreciate the help.  The  last post by mdj lead me to a link that provided the correct permissions.  Although I appreciate all the responses.
