  • do i need autodiscover?

    hi, i did a search on this forum and what came up are topics i considered too advanced for me.

    i have a single domain and exchange 2007 sp2 on my network. the exchange is a HT, CAS, mailbox (typical config) and also acts as the smarthost. it sends and receives internet email directly.

    of late, a popup windows would always appear to our Outlook 2007 users who have "cached exchange mode" enabled. but only for them.

    i haven't done anything yet because one article that came up in google suggests this is an autodiscover problem. so i need to understand what is autodiscover and it's relevance to my "cached exchange mode" users.

    appreciate any help.

    What does the pop-up window say?

    btw, you should really be on Exchange 2007 SP3 by now.

      the pop-up is asking for username and password. my users are all on the same domain and are logged in to AD.

      regarding SP3, yes i only saw yesterday a post regarding it and as soon as i sorted out this pop-up problem i will move to SP3. thanks for reminding.

        IIRC the problem with repeated requests for credentials is solved by SP3

          so you're saying it's a bug? ok then i will apply SP3.

          wish me luck!

            Just get someone else to confirm, or search these forums (the topic pops up as regularly as the credentials dialog )

            And make sure you have backups first!
