    Assisted Solution

    Autodiscover has two main purposes:
    1. To automatically create Outlook profiles
    2. To provide the URLs used by Outlook for Exchange Web Services (free/busy info, out of office, etc)

    Autodiscover allows you to automatically configure Outlook 2007 clients, helps to setup Out-of-Office or Free/Busy information in Outlook 2007. In addition, any changes in email infrastructure doesn't require your outlook to be reconfigured.

    Expert Comment

    Autodiscover does not help setup Out-of-office or free/busy information
    As I stated earlier, it provides the URL values used by Exchange web services
    You can configure an XML file on the client to configure these URLs and bypass Autodiscover
