I seem to be having problems with Outlook 2007 and 2010 on our Windows 2008 Server, in that I cannot access the out of office within outlook, error message "your automatic reply settings cannot be displayed because the server is currently unavailable, try again later" appears.
I know this isn't a new issue, and have read and followed some of the suggestions on the web such as DNS, Certificate and ISS checks and alterations relating to the autodiscovery settings on the server but nothing seems to work, so I wouldn't mind starting afresh and get some advise on what I should do.
Running a "Test Email Autoconfiguration" from outlook brings back the following errors:
Results:
"Autoconfiguration was unable to determine your settings!"
Log:
"Autodiscover to https://remote.domain.co.uk/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml FAILED (0x800C8203)
"Autodiscover to https://domain.local/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml FAILED (0x800C8203)"
"Local autodiscover for domain.local FAILED (0x8004010F)"
"Redirect check to http://autodiscover.domain.local/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml FAILED (0x80072EE7)"
"Srv Record lookup for domain.local FAILED (0x8004010F)"

Out of Office does work using OWA.

Please help, thanks.

Have you got a SAN / UCC certificate with the following names included:

mail.domain.com (or whatever you have chosen to use)
autodiscover.domain.com
internalservername.internaldomain.local
internalservername

Have you also configured an A record in DNS called Autodiscover that points to the IP address of your server?

I've added both Autodiscover.domain.local and Autodiscover.domain.co.uk in DNS pointing to the server IP address.

We don't have a SAN/UCC certificate, only a self signed one pointing to remote.domain.co.uk.

Autodiscover needs to be included in the cert name otherwise it won't work.

You would be best advised to purchase a SAN / UCC certificate from somewhere like GoDaddy which are about the cheapest.

They are simpler, quicker and easier to get your server working properly with.  You can do it without, but I'm not the one to advise you how!

We had a client with a UCC certificate with the same issue and adding the DNS names as mentioned above resolved their issue. So I'll assume getting a UCC certificate will work for us also. Thanks for your help alanhardisty.
