Exchange Autodiscover when in different domain (Test E-mail AutoConfiguration is showing you httpStatus=401 and httpStatus=500 errors)

If your computer resides in a different domain than Exchange server that hosts your mailbox, and your e-mail address domain is the same as the domain your computer resides in, and Autodiscover is correctly created and configured (Google for related articles), during profile creation don't enter your password in the password field.


The problem is in Outlook which is not asking you for your correct credentials but is instead sending your @email.domain with the password you provided. The same is true for test e-mail AutoConfiguration (Holding CTRL+Right Mouse button over Outlook icon in taskbar).



If you leave password field blank, Outlook will ask you to enter correct credentials.
