Hosted Version of Autodiscover

We provide Autodiscover the way it is supposed to be. Through Hosted Exchange all you need to configure a user profile is a username and password. A local installation on your customer's computer is not necessary, all appropriate DNS records are automatically created when you add mailboxes in ilait Partner OS.

Using the e-mail address, Autodiscover provides the following information to the client:

  • The user’s display name
  • Separate connection settings for internal and external connectivity
  • The URLs for various Outlook features that govern functionality such as free/busy information, Unified Messaging, and the offline address book
  • Outlook Anywhere server settings

When a user's Exchange information is changed, Outlook automatically reconfigures the user's profile using the Autodiscover service. For example, if a user's mailbox is moved or the client can't connect to the user's mailbox or to available Exchange features, Outlook will contact the Autodiscover service and automatically update the user's profile to include the information that's required to connect to the mailbox and Exchange features.
