Unwanted auto-discover message in Outlook - Office365

I am testing 5 users with Office 365. Rather than a complete switch to Exchange Online I have redirected emails from the current 1and1 mailboxes.

I have manually configured Outlook 2013 with the Office 365 settings and it has connected to the mailbox.

I am in the process of importing the old .pst files.

I am constantly getting a pop up message asking me if I want to allow a website to automatically configure the account. The URL is for 1and1. I have cancelled the warning but it continually keeps popping up.

Any advice?

If the autodiscover record is still pointing at 1&1, that's the expected behavior. You can use the reg keys in this article to work around it: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2212902

Note that disabling the autodiscover lookups will cause you trouble with configuring the profile (manual config is not really supported anymore), free/busy lookups, OOO replies, MailTips, etc, etc.

So should I use the reg keys only as a temporary fix until I switch completely to Exchange Online and amend the auto discover record?

If you want to get rid of the periodic popups. But as mentioned above, then you will loose every autodsicover/EWS related functionality.

I have just check the DNS record held with 1and1 and I do not see an auto-discover entry. Am I missing something here?
