We have our own exchange 2010 sp1 multi tenant environment where we want to move a client from our exchange to exchange online.

Everything goes well outside the domain, but within the domain, were the current exchange server still resided and their (old) mailbox, i have to manually add the mailbox settings, because autodiscover does not work, i think because there is a autodiscover setting in the dns.

Problem: every time when i add a new profile and add the new exchange server manually, with all the setttings, after a logoff and logon the settings are overwritten and the mailbox has become the old mailbox (exchange 2010 sp1) in stead of the new Exchange online one,

Anyone ?

1.Did you set up your cname in DNS for the autodiscover https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2404385
2. Check which virtual directory it is pointing to https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996819(v=exchg.160).aspx

Foxluv: your solution is about finding autodiscover, which works.

Problem is that my customer still has:

1) a mailbox on a multi-tenant exchange 2010 sp1 server in our cloud (domain)
2) when a new mailbox outside the domain (office 365) is created manually, the manual settings
are overwritten and it connects again to the old mailbox.

When you say connects again to the old mailbox do you mean it is connecting to on premise exchange?

Solution:

Don't need to remove or disable mailbox on-premises exchange server. I removed two attributes from the AD "homeMDB" and homeMTA", just clear these attributes with in user's properties. And outlook autodiscovers the office 365 mailbox just like a dream.

Hope that helps.
