    .

    Am i right in thinking that it is trying to look for port 443 on the 78.129.xxx.xx IP address? If that is the case then the listed IP address for domain.co.uk is our website, not the group of IP addresses where our mail.domain.co.uk resolves to. The IP address our mail server is on is 212.159.159.xx. Shouldnt this test analyzer be looking at autodiscover.domain.co.uk?
    There is two ways for it to do autodiscover - via domain.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml or via autodiscover.domain.com

    It almost sounds like it cannot locate autodiscover.domain.com from the internet (although you say this does).

    Try running the connectivity tool now you have changed the IIS permissions.

    I have run the connectivity tool since changing the IIS permissions but to no avail. It is still displaying the same problem.

    I think the problem is to do with the auth on the IIS default website as when you go to https://mail.domain.com/owa it should take you to the forms based auth login but it cannot due to the default website requiring the auth.

    It should take you to the page attached rather than prompt with a username/password box. I would set the permissions on all the folders as they are specified in the above link

    Right that looks like the autodiscover is working - you can ignore the "Attempting to test potential Autodiscover URL https://domain.co.uk/AutoDiscover/AutoDiscover.xml
    Testing of this potential Autodiscover URL failed" and should be working.

    Run the test again for Outlook Anywhere

    Ok, after setting all the permissions and changing the login to forms based (so i get the form at login) things still aren't working and the test analyzer tool is giving the exact same information.

    A little bit of progress

    I have run the outlook anywhere (RPC over HTTP) and got the results... same password on the zip as before.

    I have just setup outlook to talk to my exchange at home and it seems to work. Had to authenticate a few times but otherwise its happy. Everytime i open up outlook i need to input my test username and password but i guess that is standard.

    Now, ive tried to setup my phone to sync emails, however this fails to connect.

    Ok - the auth doesn't surprise me (on a domain joined laptop it shouldn't happen), is that autodiscover doesn't work? what happens if you manually put in the server address?

    Its chuffing working . It was to do with the inheritent permission in AD. The box wasnt ticked on the test user. As soon as it was ticked i was able to get mail on my phone.

    Thank you so much mate.

    No worries - Active sync settings sit underneath the user account in the AD tree which is why you need that ticked, I'm not sure why it doesn't work but it also means a lot of the time you cannot migrate mailboxes because of that tick box
