We've recently moved our website to an external host which I think may be throwing us up some mail issues.


Our servers were all hosted internally (web, mail etc) so all A records for our company.com pointed to the same IP address.

Occasionally I would see that Outlook would be looking at https://ourcompany.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx and not mail.ourcompany.com

As it still reached the same destination from a WAN perspective it wasn't an issue.

Now that the A record for ourcompany.com now points to our externally hosted website, I've had a couple of instances whereby I've needed to change the address from https://ourcompany.com to https://mail.ourcompany.com

Having to do this once per machine wasn't a major problem, however it seems that some of the computers are reverting to https://ourcompany.com, meaning that I need to change the address manually again..

Does anyone know why its changing back, and more importantly, how do I stop it? Our server is accessible internally and externally as mail.ourcompany.com. Kerio is configured so that the domain is ourcompany.com, the internet hostname is mail.ourcompany.com.

Ok so further investigation I've found the cause, but not sure why..

In Outlook, no matter what I set the server address to whether its mail.ourcompany.com or https://mail.ourcompany.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx upon connection the address changes to https://ourcompany.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx - does anyone have any ideas as to how I stop the Kerio server changing its address?

Outlook uses autodiscover service to configure account. Please see details here:

So you must configure your DNS properly. There is also an option to disable autodiscover in Outlook.
