I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Use the EMC to disable Outlook Anywhere

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Outlook Anywhere configuration" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.
In the console tree, navigate to Server Configuration > Client Access.
In the action pane, click Disable Outlook Anywhere.
Click Yes when you're asked if you want to disable Outlook Anywhere for this server.

I need to setup server so only select users use Outlook Anywhere
When enabled, uses start getting auto configured for the HTTP connection

I would also suggest using the Microsoft Remote Connectivity Analyzer: https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/

This will help you test pretty much exactly what your users can or cant connect with.

Outlook Anywhere will be pushed to all clients when you enable it. That behaviour cannot be stopped.
You can disable the ability to use Outlook Anywhere on a per user basis, but it will not stop the connection attempt.

However due to the way it works, the clients should normally connect to the server using TCP. They should only use HTTPS if they are unable to make a connection with TCP.
Therefore instead of trying to resolve the problem with using Outlook Anywhere, you need to investigate why they are failing over to HTTP.
