Hey team I have an issue that has been haunting me. I got the out of office assistant to work internally for domain users. However we have a few users that are not on the domain. They use outlook on a local profile. How can I get out of office working for those users? when they attempt to access it they get a error message "server not available" When I run the autodiscovery test it fails. Do we need to purchase an additional Cert apart from our OWA cert? Is there a way to make this work?

It is available through OWA however I would like it working through the client if possible

      Exchange Web Services synchronization, notification, availability, and Automatic Replies (OOF).

      ExRCA is attempting to test Autodiscover for XXXX@XXXX.org.
       Testing Autodiscover failed.

You Problem is the Autodiscover. Please look at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb201695.aspx . Then you schould deploy a valid certificate.
