Hi There!

I have a customer who has upgraded his Surface 1 RT Tablet to 8.1 no problems. Outlook is pointing at the Internal IP of his exchange server, which is now moved offsite. I need to update the paths, but he is a long drive away and I don't have one.

He can get into the accounts, and see's that the URL isn't correct. but he can't edit the settings as they appear greyed out.

Any chance anyone could post a video or screenshots on how to change this.

I can't answer your Question itself, but why don't you have your client download and start the teamviewer on his tablet, you can then connect to it from your location and try configuring it?

So is the Exchange Server that has moved on an internal network, just somewhere else OR have they moved to Hosted Exchange somewhere?

Teamviewer for Surface RT seems to only allow outgoing connections.

Are you familiar with setting up Outlook Anywhere
If the Exchange Server at the other location supports Outlook Web Access it should also support Outlook Anywhere
