I have a user that is having issues with Lync and Exchange 2010 SP1. I don't know the specifics of the error just yet but this prompted a different question as to whether EWS was enabled for this user. Now I would think this would be the default for Exchange. I looked at some mailboxes and using the get-casmailbox command, examined a few mailboxes. I noticed that EWSEnabled is set to blank.I though well this could not be possible because everything is working. Maybe its set Organization wide? Using the get-OrganizationConfig command and piping to FL, I found the EWSEnabled setting but its blank also!! So, my question is why does it not say Enabled at the Org level. Is blank an implied Enable?

AFAIK it is not enabled by default.
We should enable using the commands which u have mentioned.

I already read that article. That is what prompted this post. How can it be that EWS is not enabled when things like Free/Busy, Rules, Out of Office and the laundry list of other services provided by EWS is working?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Sorry for above post :

EWS will be enabled by default in Exchange 2010 with no changes needed. It can be affected by common changes made to the system after installation. Installing an SSL certificate with a different name than the server's can cause problems.
For example  using mail.company.com instead of exmail01.company.com

Use Set-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory command  to change the Internal and External URLs used to connect to EWS/Autodiscovery.

I think we are all set with our certificates. We have been running for at least a year. I was careful in ceritficate creation and we use SAN certificates for everything. This all came up because I had someone from our tech support team say EWS is not working for a particular user. I believe the problem is that Conversation History is not being saved in Outlook for this user and apparently this is somehow tied to EWS in Exchange. I started looking around and found Redmonds article and then looked at the mailboxes and Organization. I was surprised to find a Null value here but certainly reluctant to change anything. My other question is why Null?
