Hi, I have a user who is based out of our office. I have transfered his email to main to our server thanks to the help of the experts. My question is I now need to connect to our exchange via Outlook 2013 and cant quite get it to connect.

By the looks of it EAS isnt an option. I cant get the pc to out office to join it to the domain and access via proxy.

What are my options?

Hi,

you should connect any out of office Outlook via Outlook Anywhere option. This will allow users to have all functions of Outlook, just as they were in office (on MAPI connection).

- Only other option is POP/IMAP, but that is not what you want. -

To do this, first check if Outlook Anywhere is enabled and if yes, what dns name is it using (most likely same as owa).
Server Configuration --> Client Access --> Select Server and choose Properties. There you will see if it is enabled  and what name is it using.

If it is not enabled:  https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb123542(v=exchg.141).aspx
(This takes 15min to get enabled after you enable it, so wait a little)

If everything is ok, then Outlook should be configured. Go to settings --> Change account --> More settings --> Connection tab. Check "Connect to Exchange suing HTTP".
In more settings type:
Use this URL to connect to my proxy server: URL from Outlook Anywhere (like mail.domain.com)
Connect only using SSL --> check
Only connect to proxy server... --> check and type msstd: and name of Outlook Anywhere adrese
 something like:   msstd:mail.domain.com

On fast network --> check
On slow network --> check

Use this authentication: one configured on Outlook Anywhere (or Negotiate)

Regards.

Hi, This is how we have out laptops setup ans it works fine. My problem is ths laptop I need to setup is not a member of our domain, infact its not in out country, so when I create an exchange account in outlook it cannot verify our exchange, our internal exchange server is outserver.ourinternaldomain.local I can enter all other settings, but can get it to ignore the facet that the local server isnt available.

Thanks.

Hi,

it should work on any computer, domain or non domain. I had it configured on my home pc, connected to Exchange 2007, 2010 and now on 2013.

You need to enter external name that Outlook Anywhere is using. So external name that is NAT to exchange on port 443.
Are you using internally published certificate, from you CA, or public CA? If it is internal then you need you import root certificate to that computer. If it is public, then certificate used on Exchange is trusted, and there is no for this.

When you create profile, go straight to more settings and configure Outlook Anywhere. Make sure you are entering username in correct format..

PS: when you configure profile, on first page you enter internal exchange name  and username, then go to more settings and configure OA.

Create new profile for user:
 Server: Exchange2013-1 (your internal server name)
 Username: domain\username  --> Same format as for OWA virtual directory

 More Settings: Configure Outlook Anywhere.  

 Apply, OK.
 Test.

 You will get that there is no connection. When prompted for server and username, change username (Mailbox filed)

 Mailbox: change username from domain\username to  e-mail address

 Finish --> when prompted for username and password enter  domain\username
