I happened to go into my mail settings working on another problem after migrating my mailbox over to the new exchange 2013 server and my server name has changed from name.domain.org to hexadecimalnumber@domain.org

If I attempt to change it to the real server name it does not see my mailbox!!!

What is going on?

That's the way it works with Exchange 2013 now.

Instead of connecting to a server per say the mail server portion is the GUID of your mailbox on the server followed by the @domain.

This site briefly covers that:
https://knowledge.zomers.eu/exchange/Pages/What-are-the-strange-server-guids-in-Exchange-2013.aspx


Excerpt from Microsoft:
Second, Outlook clients no longer connect to a server FQDN as they have done in all previous versions of Exchange. Outlook uses Autodiscover to create a new connection point comprised of mailbox GUID, @ symbol, and the domain portion of the user’s primary SMTP address. This simple change results in a near elimination of the unwelcome message of “Your administrator has made a change to your mailbox. Please restart.” Only Outlook 2007 and higher versions are supported with Exchange 2013.

Well you shouldn't really have to put in a server name as auto discover should do that for you.

However, if you put in the FQDN of your exchange server it should convert the FQDN to what you see above.
