Autodiscover configuration without certificate requirement

Hi All,

Microsoft has introduced one more way for configuring autodiscover that does’nt require a complex configuration & certificate for autodiscover.

Outlook 2007 SP1 & aove query for autodiscover srv record on the DNS as well apart from other autodiscover queries.

So just create a SRV in the external DNS

port :443

point it to A record of your webmail (

After this when you will configure outlook it will work like a charm without needing any compex configuration on exchange side.

for more info refer to below KB article from Microsoft:

I have implemented this for one of our clients that is using Exchange 2010..& I am satisfied with the simplicity of its implementation.
