My environement, Exchange Online, 20 users,
All clients, Windows 7 and WIndows XP, Oulook 2007 and Outlook 2010 are OK and autodiscovery to the Exchange server works fine, Outlook gets an automatic configuration, no problem

I  have a problem with a Windows 2003 R2 SP2 Server with Office 2010 installed which cannot connect to the Exchange Server, autodiscovery do not works (Exchange server is not found) and neither manual configuration (I can check the settings in a working configuration) do not work neither. THe 2003 R2 SP2 does not recognise the Exchange server

Any idea ?
Thank you

Is there Windows 2003 Server at the same physical location as the Exchange server?

If you do an NSlookup on the Autodiscover record for the Exchange Server does it resolve correctly?  If not, check your DNS.

Is the Windows 2003 Server a DC/TS?
