I'm trying to troubleshoot a hosted exchange account. The account works, but sometimes has quite poor performance on the laptop at some locations

The account is hosted with intermedia. When I talked to Intermedia, they said that there was an anomally in the autodiscover entry.

I have been trying to find a way to discover what the autodiscover entry is propogating as. It looks like it is setup right.

Does anyone know where I can do this?

Autodiscover are public records.
Therefore you can use the Microsoft tools at http://exrca.com/ - create a test account if possible.
You can also use Outlook.

I had already run the test. Intermedia support claimed to be able to see the autodiscover records on network-tools.com but I was unable to duplicate their efforts.

I'm trying to find a way to check what's propogating.

The tools will show you what is being seen.
Autodiscover doesn't propagate anything in DNS. All Autodiscover DNS records are is either an A record or an SRV record, which would be setup according to the instructions from your hosted Exchange provider.
