Security Alert When opening outlook
I have 2 users in the same office that are the only ones affected by this. When we open outlook we get 2 security alerts asking us if we want to proceed. It says there is a problem with the site's security certificate. Why would i get that with exchange. Thats something i would think being an issue with OWA, not exchange.. it comes up 2 times, once for server.domain.local. and again for autodiscover, i've tried installing the certificate. But i don't know why its only happening on 2 computers

I would check to see if these 2 clients were indeed connecting using MAPI (TCP) or if they were using RPC/HTTPS - my guess would be the latter. To check, when you open outlook, hold down CTRL and Left Click the Outlook Icon system tray the select Connection Status

Did you ever resolve this issue? I'm having the same problem.

I am having the same issue. I cannot connect to an exchange server due to this error.

I would say this issue is more likely connected to activesync, try upgrading if using it

I am having the sme problem as well with the outlook2007 and exchange 2007.The client sees what appears tobe an external certificate. I understand it is an autodiscover setting but what exactly needs to be configured. All internal clients get teh Security Alert pop up.

Follow the steps in the following article to create an Exchange certificate using the management shell: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa995942.aspx Then make sure you have a DNS record for autodiscover.domain.com to your client access server.

Same problem here is well. I'm not seeing in any of the posts or making the connection on why a ceritificate is even involved here with a mapi client.

Outlook versions 2003 Sp2 & 3 and 2007 all use something called Exchange Web Services (hosted on the Client Access Server) to get the OAB, Availability Schedules & OOF functionality regardless of whether connected via MAPI or RPC/HTTPS. For this reason it is a best practise to ensure that your CAS Server Sefl-Signed Certificates are replaced with either Internal or External Trusted Certificates to avoid any communication issues like those being faced by posters in this thread.

Only Outlook 2007 uses Exchange Web Services. but I agree that the self signed cert should be replaced. for outlook 2007 to know where the EWS,OAB, OOFis located (which URL) you should configure the autodiscover function on Exchange 2007 server.

I am getting this error on only 1 users laptop. We are running Outlook 2007 but its a 2003 Exchange server. Is there a way to shut this off in Outlook?

I had the same problem ...Took me a while to discover a solution ...Found this ... http://trycatch.be/blogs/pdtit/archive/2008/01/30/outlook-2007-autodiscover-authentication-popup-mistery.aspx ... worked for me! Basically an IE proxy issue ... add your domains as exception to the proxy and bobs your uncle! There may of course be an underlying issue - but this sorted it for us ...Good luck people!Cheers!

I'm having the same problem, but I'm not using a proxy server. Has anyone else dealt with this?

Max - I'm having the same problem and I do not use a proxy server. Did you find a resolution to this problem? Thanks!

I was getting two security messages. Autodiscover was looking at the external certificate. I went into IIS and pur in a HTTP redirect to the name of the internal exchange server. That fixed one of the security messages. I am still working on the other.

This worked for me as well!

Hi everyone, I am also getting this same problem after the existing SBSCertificate.cer had expired and I created a new one in the SBS console, now all my client laptops which are also configured to use RPC over HTTPS are all coming up with two Security Alert messages.... why ????? Does this normally go wrong like this when the original certificate expires ? Have I renewed / replaced this in an incorrect manner ? I don't seem to be getting any issues with mobile phones which connect externally other than initially prompting that there is a new certificate and then clicking on continue to install it. What is the correct procedure here to avoid all this monkey business in the first place ? Everything was working just fine until I reneweed / replaced the expired SCSCertificate through the SBS console. If it is something to do with Autodiscover being wrong then why was it working OK up until i replaced it ? Mike
