I would appreciate some help with resolving a few problems. I will go through what i think is needed and would appreciate if you could let me know if I'm on the right track.
Basically we have been using active office for emails and have decided to migrate the operation to hosted exchange 2010 servers. The set up is as follows we have a mail store server ----> CAS/HUB -----> (DMZ) edge transport server.
I have migrated myself over and am able to send and receive without problems both internally and externally.
When i was setting up my outlook client it auto discovered to CAS01.domain.local however this only connects if i have a persistent route on the local machine which i want to avoid as this will then use our MPLS connection and i would rather the email traffic be routed over the net. Am i right in thinking i will need to get a certificate that has autodiscover.domain.com with the name space being directed at the edge transport servers external IP which should in turn route it to the CAS? (for the routing to and from the edge server does edge sync need to be activated?) As i already have the connectors set up.
So basically to configure the outlook clients to connect over the internet is the above steps correct?
Secondly regarding the OWA set up i have the internal URL configured to https://CAS01.domain.local
and internally this is working fine. However when i am trying to connect to the external URL of https://mail.domain.com it does not connect and times out. The namespace is pointing to the external IP of the edge server. However when i try the external URL from the edge transport server it connects, so i assume that the port 443 is not open and https traffic is not being redirected to CAS. I have asked the hosting company to check their firewall settings. Do you think this would be the cause?
Many thanks in advance
