I've been looking through past Solutions and none seem to have worked for me so far, and they all seem to revert to the same solution. I am probably doing something incorrectly.
Server 2008 with Exchange 2010
Windows 7 with Office 2010
Go to File, Info, Automatic Replies and after about ten seconds I get the "Your automatic reply settings cannot be displayed because the server is currently unavailable. Try again later." message which seems so popular.
Created (A) record: autodiscover.internal.mydo
main.com --> 192.168.1.5 [exchange server]
Created CNAME: autodiscover.internal.mydo
main.com --> exchange.internal.mydomain
.com [i know this is redundant; was just trying]
In Management Shell I have:
Set-OutlookProvider –id exch –server: exchange01 [the server name]
-I received an interesting result:
Id : 1013
Type : Error
Message : When contacting https://mydomain.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml received the error The remote name could not be resolved: 'mydomain.com'
From this message it seems that my DNS settings are incorrect, or *something*! By the way, I *can* ping "autodiscover" or "autodiscover.internal.myd
from any local client and it returns my Exchange servers' IP address just fine.
Either way it is frustrating and none of our users can set their Automatic Replies through Outlook. They must use OWA.
