How to Configure Outlook Anywhere from Internet

How to Configure Outlook Anywhere from Internet

If your customer does decide to enable OA externally it is important to note that the external host name value configured for Outlook Anywhere must match the Certificate Principal Name (CPN) on the certificate used by clients and must match the end point property in the client.

In order for Subject Alternate Name (SAN) certificates to be used for clients to connect to the OA service, where the CPN does not match the msstd value configured in the Outlook client profile (but the url is listed in the SAN part of the certificate), certain conditions need to be met, these are listed below:-
  • Outlook 2007 or higher
  • Vista SP1

Then when you open Outlook you should not longer get the cert error!
