2. Auto discover Server has been configured in Exchange 2007 but still it is showing outlook provided ...blank , no CAS Server Bind.
3. Auto discover Service need to configure in Ex2k13 CAS Server--- it is penidng.
4. Mailbox movement between Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013 - Failed ... may be it is not supported now.

My quesries below,

2. How to Bind CAS Server as a outlook Provider.
3. Is there any posssiblity to Move the Mialbox from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013.

You can not use self signed certificate for outlook RPC over HTTP connectivity.
First finish your configuration including certificates and autodiscover.

Thanks for your reply, I am using RPC over HTTP as this a test lab which is not connected with Internet.

I will configure Certificate & auto discover service , but my question was , whay I am not able to configure my outlook profile by selecting manually  after installaing Exchange 2013.

Because if the server does not have installed correct certificate and the client does not trust that certificate the communication between outlook and server will not work.
You probably have errors when you try to check name at add new account window.

My understanding that the ability to co-exist with Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2013 isn't yet supported until a further rollup is released

Its no supported for 2010 until SP3, in which case issues will occur

Whereas I am able to connect both mailbox & able to send mail both the users mailbox by using owa.
