Outlook 2011 and exchange 2010

Hi All,

to start off with I am a complete novice when it comes to Exchange 2010. I have been asked to look after our Exchange 2010 server since our former administrator left the company.

The problem: One of our executives has an Macbook and is running outlook 2011. Everything was working fine but now he cannot connect to the exchange server via outlook. OWA works fine. We have tried bypassing Autodiscover but no luck.

Our internal and external autodiscover point to the same URL (from what I can tell) and we are using our own certificate (which has been working fine).

Any idea on how to resolve this issue?

Results from https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com
Host name autodiscover.xx.co.za doesn't match any name found on the server certificate CN=x.x.co.za.

An HTTP 403 forbidden response was received. The response appears to have come from Unknown. Body of the response: You do not have permission to view this directory or page.

The Autodiscover SRV record wasn't found in DNS.

We have been having these errors in the past but the Mac worked fine.

Hi Takecoffe,

Thanks for the reply. Basic Authentication was enabled already.

If you aren't using a trusted SSL certificate, then the results from the test site aren't really going to help very much. I would strongly suggest dropping the self signed certificate and switching to a commercial one. $60/year and no SSL prompts, importing etc to deal with.

Simon.
