Hi guys ,

I have failed to connect to my exchange 2007 with some of my client who has outlook 2010.

actually I was trying to connect also with outlook 2007 and got the same issue.

"the connection to microsoft exchange is unavailable. outlook must be online or connected to complete this action"

I have all the exchange services up and running.

thx ,

I don't need the Autodiscovery in this case I'm trying to access from local machine in the domain to the mailbox server.

autodiscover is used to automatically configure a user profile as you are attempting to do
if it's not configured or not working properly you will have this issue

Autodiscover is not an optional feature.
It isn't used just for Outlook profile creation, but is also used by the client to find availability information and Out of Office. Therefore you need to ensure that Autodiscover works correctly.

Is the server fully up to date?
Do you have a trusted SSL certificate in place?

Simon.
