Outlook 2010 - Outlook Anywhere (Proxy settings URL) inside vs outside the network


The Outlook client is configured with a Proxy setting URL to connect via Outlook Anywhere to Exchange. When the Outlook client is inside the network is the Proxy setting URL used? Does the Outlook client connect differently when inside and outside the network?

Short answer - yes.
With Exchange 2010 and older, the client attempts to connect to the Exchange server directly using RPC over TCP. If that fails, then it will attempt to use Outlook Anywhere (aka RPC over HTTPS).

Therefore while the client maybe configured with the settings, it doesn't mean it is using them.
