Office365: Outlook prompts for red002.mail.emea.microsoftonline.com credentials

After transitioning from Bpos to Office365 some of our users experienced outlook opening a red002.mail.emea.microsoftonline.com promt asking for password.

  • Office365 configuration had been successfully run.
  • Autodiscover worked on other machines.
  • NSlookup for autodiscover.domain.com showed autodiscover.outlook.com.

The only thing I could find pointing at the server autodiscover-red002.mail.ema.microsoftonline.com was a .xml file named outlook-autodiscovery.xml under

[Windows 7] c:\users\%username%\appdata\local\microsoft\Sign In\Config\”profilename”

[Windows XP] C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\locale settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Sign In\Config\”profilename”

When I renamed the file to .old i was able to run a successful autodiscover test in outlook (Right-click the outlook icon in the system tray and select “Test E-mail AutoConfiguration”)

Open outlook again and it will prompt the correct autodiscover Log on with username / password restart outlook.

Sometimes the server address will not be updated but it will get the correct RPC over HTTP settings. Copy server address eg. servername.outlook.com from the settings, paste it into the email-server settings.

Apply settings.

Open outlook.

Enjoy 🙂

Online Services: Manuel konfiguration af Outlook uden sso-klient

Hvis man ikke ønsker at benytte Microsoft Online Services SSO klienten kan man konfigurere Outlook manuelt.

Undervejs vil den brokke sig over at den ikke har forbindelse til exchange ignorer disse og bare gå videre i opsætningen.

Åben post i kontrolpanel, opret en ny profil.
Konfigurer server indstillinger manuelt, vælg exchange.

Log ind på OWA, find postkasseserver under Indstillinger –> Om

Indtast postkasseserver og mailadresse som brugernavn. Vælg flere indstillinger og konfigurer forbindelse til Microsoft exchange med HTTP.

Færdiggør opsætningen af den nye profil.

Start Outlook og log ind med brugernavn/adgangskode.

Online Services: ”Indstillingerne for automatisk svar kan ikke vises, fordi serveren ikke er tilgængelig. Prøv igen senere.”

Stødte på denne fejl for et par dage siden. Outlook blev konfigureret igennem SSO-klienten, brugeren kan sende og modtage e-mails alt ser ud til at fungere. Men.. Hvis man forsøget at åbne Autosvar får man fejlen:

Autosvar fra OWA fungerede som det skulle.

Det der løste det var at omdøbe brugerens .ost fil og derefter konfigurere Outlook igen fra SSO-klienten.
