  • Exchange 2010 Outlook Anywhere authentication issues

    Currently testing Outlook Anywhere in my home lab. I've enabled Outlook anywhere and I have a self signed cert from a local Enterprise CA.

    My internal namespace is xxx.local and my external name space is xxx.net and I have a autodiscover.xxx.net DNS record.

    When configuring Outlook 2010 I enter my Full name and email address and password. Outlook goes away then I get prompted for a password for [email protected] - Which doesn exist as my internal namespace is xxx.local. If I change this to [email protected] it works fine.

    Is there anyway to configure it so I can I dont get prompted to enter my .local userid i.e. I can use either .local or .net?

    I've added a UPN called xxx.net and this is visible from my account but it still fails. Do I need to change my account to use xxx.net as my login of will it use either?

    It's not a major problem but I'm just thinking it would be easier if I could use either thus not getting prompted to change my user ID when authenticating.

    Thanks

    If the client is not a member of the domain then it has no way of knowing what your domain username is. The prompt with the username filled in is generated locally -that isn't anything from Exchange.

    Therefore if you want to just enter a password at that prompt then the UPN will need to be changed to match the email address so when the authentication goes through it matches.
