Exchange 2010 / Outlook 2010 RPC HTTP Issue

Enabled Outlook Anywhere and discovered it wants to push these settings out to clients on our local network, overriding the settings they currently have.   Is there a way to keep RPC/HTTP for testing purposes for external clients while preventing internal clients from picking up settings from the server?

Short answer - no.
If you enable Outlook Anywhere then all clients will get the setting via Autodiscover.

Even though the clients have the settings, they will not use them internally.

Outlook Anywhere works on a fall back method. It is only used if the server cannot connect via TCP/IP.
If you hold down CTRL while right clicking on the Outlook icon in the system tray, then choose Connection Status, you should see the protocol as TCP/IP not HTTP.
