Outlook 2016 on Exchange 2010 server

Hi,
I have some clients who are trying to install Outlook 2016 and connect to the Exchange 2010 server that I manage for them.
I have an autodiscover record set up for my domain and have had it set up for years. It works fine with other versions of Outlook.

However, for some reason Outlook 2016 (which only uses Autodiscover I'm told), won't connect to the Exchange 2010 mail server in most cases.
If the user is running Windows 7 or if the user upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7, Outlook 2016 has no problem connecting via Autodiscover.
However, if the PC came with a fresh install of Windows 10,  Outlook 2016 will not configure itself using autodiscover.

Anyone have experience with this and hopefully a solution?

Thanks,
Nacht

What Service Pack and Rollup level are you at with your Exchange server?  We just did Office 365 - which is really the 2016 product and had to upgrade our Exchange server to SP3 RU11 - actually went to RU 13 because of some feature we need for the hybrid environment.

Hi,

Are you getting any error something like "An encrypted connection to your mail server is not available'? if so, this issue caused by a Microsoft KB3118293. You need to uninstall this KB from the machine where outlook 2016 is installed. This is the only known issue with outlook 2016 am aware.

Please let us know how it goes?

Here is a link to a reddit post that worked for me.
