In the middle of a 2003 to 2010 migration. Out office works through OWA but not Outlook. I ran the testconnectivity for the autodiscover test and the autodiscover passes but the ' creating a temporary folder to perform synchronization' fails (see attachment). The Exchange server is up to date on patches and is running rollup 6 sp3 for exchange. Please help experts.

Does Autodiscover work internally if you use Outlook to test it?

When you say OOTO doesn't work, do you mean to set it, or the response?

What version of Outlook are you using?

Simon,

Yes the autodiscover test passes internally via the http://testexchangeconnectivity.com/  tool and the 'test autoconfiguration' utility within Outlook. We have a mixture of Outlook 2007 and 2010 and it's not working for any user.

What I mean by not working is users cannot set their out of office within Outlook. They are having to use OWA in order to set OOO. Below is the error message we are getting: "Your Out of Office Settings cannot be displayed, because the server is currently unavailable. Try again later."

Unusual for the Autodiscover test to work but OOTO to fail.
Do you have a trusted certificate in place? All URLs set to match the certificate?
