Depends on the version of exchange and the configure connection method. MAPI, RPC, and OA each use different ports.

Hi, Port 389 is used for authentication either machine is in Workgroup or Domain.

At first just to clarify that Outlook 2010 running on a non-domain computer won't communicate with a DC except the DC is just the mail server.

Secondly please clarify which kind communication are you referring to in your question? Outlook to access the mail server or the computer to join the domain?

This is for the communication between Outlook 2010 (on the non-domain joined client) communicating with the exchange 2010 CAS server. Obviously because the exchange server is not in the same domain as the client and there is no trust, at some point the user will be prompted for authentication. What are the ports that will be used for the authentication traffic?

If you configure for RPC then the ports are dynamic. If you configure OA then it is 443. IMAP, POP3, and SMTP all have different ports as well. So again, it do ends on the method you choose.

I'm referring to an RPC client. It's clear that the ports used for Outlook traffic are dynamic but the original question is: Is there a need to contact a domain controller directly or will all authentication traffic be handled by the CAS server?

Outlook will not contact a domain controller for authentication purposes.
