Autodiscover is not working with outlook 2010 clients
An unknown error occurred, error code: 0x80070057

the domain is superman.local
the recipient policy is @superman.net

I read there is a hotfix, which I can no longer download.  

Also I can configure A record for autodiscover

I'm not sure if this matters, but the autodiscover tries to configure @superman.net not @superman.local  

However Outlook 2010 client still tries to configure @

True "autodiscover" only started with Exchange 2007. maybe this word document will answer your question

Automatic configuration with older Exchange servers
In an Exchange environment that does not include Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or later, Outlook still attempts to locate Exchange mailboxes. Active Directory includes a mailbox server property that can be set for each user. If standard Autodiscover attempts fail, Outlook tries to configure simple Exchange connections to an earlier version of Exchange server by using the Exchange mailbox server property. For a simple server topology with one domain and all Outlook computers joined to the domain, Outlook queries Active Directory for the Exchange server defined for the user logged in to the computer.

So, it can find an Exchange server - locally, inside the LAN, in a simple topology. Otherwise you'll need to specify the server name and username.

I believe I have a simple topology.   1 DC, 1 EX, 20 users.  

I'm not sure where to go.  The article mentions it can be done.  Says something

"the Exchange mailbox server property"

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

It's a property associated with the user in AD - when you create the mailbox.

The server name so linked needs to be resolvable by NetBIOS name - meaning DNS / WINS needs to be working too...

Which feature are you trying to turn off? Having the Outlook client attempt autodiscover? Just click the manual settings button during setup.

Ok, but even for the internal clients, the Exchange 2003 server is "autoconfiguring"  the Outlook clients with the "external SMTP email address"      the internal lan is .local   the the email sent out is .net

I guess i can skip past it, but outlook is reading something some where to get the @domain.net address when I would like to have it try the @local address

my fault I was not properly understand my own problem.  

I removed the @domain.local from the recipient policy and left the @domain.net

outlook 2010 was defaulting to @domain.local which I wasn't looking for

Then exchange 03 does not support what I was hoping for.  

thank you for being patient with me
