Outlook not connecting to mailbox after move to Exchange 2016

I am in the process of transitioning Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016.  Have moved several mailboxes to Exchange 2016 that are being successfully accessed with Outlook and OWA.  However, there is one mailbox (we'll call the user John Doe) that was successfully moved and the mailbox is accessible via OWA but not accessible with Outlook.  Attempted to connect from several other workstations and Outlook clients but same result.  We move the mailbox back to Exchange 2010 and everything works without issue.

Then we exported the John Doe mailbox to PST, deleted it from Exchange 2010, created a new mailbox for John Doe in Exchange 2016, and imported PST.  Outlook is unable to connect to the mailbox on 2016.  If we move the mailbox back to Exchange 2010, Outlook is able to access the mailbox without issue.

It appears the auto-configutation is working properly as the user's mailbox info populates Outlook when the profile is being created.  We've even deleted the Windows profile from on of the workstations but made no difference.

Any thoughts that could guide me?

Thank you in advance.

Can ping and nslookup Autodiscover without issue.

ExRCA (testconnectivity.com) tests run successfully.

I'll try the Outlook testing options however they aren't available with the mailbox on the 2016 server.

Try Microsoft Office Configuration Analyzer Tool 2.2 and see if that finds any issues with the configuration

Also did you disable exchange cached mode in outlook and created new email profile?

The problems with reply email signatures

Do you wish that you could place an email signature under a reply? Well, unfortunately, you can't. That great Exchange/Office 365 signature you've created will just appear at the bottom of an email chain. What a pain! Is there really no way to solve this? Well, there might be...

Hi,

have you tried with restart of Autodiscover Application Pool? I hade the same problem with few users, that were migrated from 2010 to 2016, and that has helped.

There is MS KB on it.  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3097392

Regards,
Ivan.

Unfortunately, for this specific user, the resolution was to delete the AD account and associated mailbox, and recreate them.

However, if the issue crops up again, I will try recycling the autodiscover app pool and use OffCAT.

Thanks.

Had the connectivity issue reoccur and recycled the app pool with success.

Thanks all.

Too many email signature updates to deal with?

Do you feel like you are taking up all of your time constantly visiting users’ desks to make changes to email signatures? Wish you could manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users? Well, there is an easy way!
