Hi there, i have exhausted my knowledge on this one. Im trying to get the OOF working for a domain im now looking after.

After re pointing all the addresses to the correct ones creating DNS records, testing with  the outlook test auto configuration. checking the permissions on the IIS autodiscover and now using the https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com i get one last error which i hope once solved will allow the OOF to work

When visting https://autodiscover.mydomain.com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml i get You do not have permission to view this directory or page.

on the ms test site i get the following error

      Attempting to send an Autodiscover POST request to potential Autodiscover URLs.
       Autodiscover settings weren't obtained when the Autodiscover POST request was sent.

Hi,

Did you change the autodiscover record in DNS to point to the new server? Please also make sure that the correct permissions are set on the IIS directories. Also make sure that the users have full permissions to there mailboxes.

Additional, I find an similar thread about your question, please refer to:

Exchange 2007 Sp1 is no longer supported.
Download and install Exchange 2007 Sp3 (it is fully SBS aware) and then the latest rollup. I would bring the server up to date before I do anything else.

Once complete, run the fix my network wizard in the SBS console. As this is an SBS server you need to manage it in the way that SBS expects, otherwise you will break things quite badly. SBS 2008 makes changes that are not standard to the Exchange configuration, so it is important the wizard is used.

Yep cheers simon, we are suggesting to this client to get them moved to a hosted exchange solution as their ISP speed is so poor for their in house exchange server, so im a bit reluctant to upgrade them to SP3 with the fear of SP3 breaking anything. Would you upgrade to SP3 or wait?

I would upgrade to Exchange 2007 SP3. No hesitation.
Exchange service packs effectively reinstall the product and as such resolve a lot of problems. If I had seen that server, it would have been upgraded before doing ANY other work or troubleshooting. I see no point in wasting time fixing problems on a server that is so out of date.
