Fix Outlook autodiscover for website with no SSL, hosted on shared server

i'm trying to fix autodiscover for Outlook where the domain name has a website hosted on a shared server. The first URL that Outlook looks at for autodiscover is an https address. Apparently if the request result is "Server not Found" then it will try other options. However, the URL displays the default page for Plesk (ie the webserver control panel).

Without setting up https for the site, or individually configuring PCs, how can I get autodiscover working?

Thanks

Maybe you can use autodiscover redirect.

You can add www.youdomain.com/autodiscover & redirect it to your real autodicover URL.

Read this article for more information (just the redirect part) : http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2010/mobility-client-access/using-autodiscover-large-numbers-accepted-domains-part1.html

That will need SSL set up first though, right? The "Resolution" section of the page here seems to describe our issue: https://exchangemaster.wordpress.com/2013/05/07/new-behavior-in-outlook-2013-causing-certificate-errors-in-some-environments/

Setting up SSL and a redirect (with Apache, in our case, not IIS) seems to be one solution. It may also be an option to configure Autodiscover with a group policy, according to the link provided in the above mentioned page, but that's getting out of my depth....
