I'm running a 2008 SBS & have a handful of sales people using macbook pro laptops & outlook 2011 for Mac. Outlook seems to either work good inside or outside the office, but not both. In trying to emulate the problem on my own mac, I went to office & set up outlook. When getting back home, I get the alternating message in lower right corner, connecting to mydomain / not connected to mydomain. When checking my advanced settings, under Accounts>Advanced>Server, I see; https://sites/EWS/Exchange.asmx , which was automatically put in there when setting up the account while in office.
If I'm out of the office & I change this to https://mailserver.mydomain.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx , it works fine, but once I'm back in the office this changes back to the https://sites... setting. I can change it to https://mailserver.mydomain.com... & it will work fine - in or out of the office, so is there a way to keep this setting in there or can someone tell me what's wrong with this picture?
On a possibly unrelated note, smart phones or windows laptops have no problems in or out of the office...
Thanks!

My guess is that autodiscovery is turned on in the Mac, but is not working when outside of the office. It's hard to say why it's not working outside the office, but you can turn off autodiscovery on the Mac and have it access the URL you specify.

There's information on it here:

Let us know if this works.

A reader sent in another fix, related to the Autodiscover feature, here:
