exchange anywhere setting in outlook 2007

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Hi, i have a issue on a windows 7 laptop with outlook 2007.

Under the setting where you enter the outlook anywhere proxy settings.

It has autodiscover.mydomain.com - autodiscover does not connect to my exchange server, but if i change it to mail.mydomain.com it connects fine.

So i changed both options that had autodiscover to mail. and everything is good.

A week later my client phoned me saying it wont connect. i went back into that setting and it had reverted back to autodiscover.

is there a way to prevent this. or is there a guide to get autodiscover to work. i have added autodiscover to the godaddy certificate and it appears as alternative subject names in the cert
