remote connectivity results/ Exchange 2003

Experts,
Below is the results of a remote connectivity test for a user who is having sync issues between Exchange and her mobile device.  The phone is configured correctly in that she is making and checking calendar entries for the exchange account while on the phone.
We do not have a SSL certificate for the organization, and I did not run the syncronazation test.  If you can offer any insight into the output below while I look into it myself, it would be appreciated.

Looks like someone set up a wildcard DNS record (usually not a good idea) and is pointing at the company's hosted webserver. So it is capturing *all* attempts to use autodiscover, which is pretty much an essential service for most phones.
