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.

Netscaler vs Exchange 2019 "time out during ssl handshake stage

If you are using Citrix Netscaler as load balancer in front of Exchange 2019 server you must know this: Microsoft Exchange 2019 is secured by default and allows only TLS 1.2. Therefore default schannel settings are as follows (using IISCrypto tool from Nartac Software): While Citrix Netscaler offers following Cipher Suites: TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_DSS_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_DSS_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA TLS_RSA_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA TLS_RSA_EXPORT_WITH_DES40_CBC_SHA TLS_RSA_EXPORT_WITH_RC2_CBC_40_MD5 TLS_DHE_DSS_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_DSS_EXPORT1024_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_DSS_EXPORT_WITH_DES40_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA TLS_DHE_RSA_EXPORT_WITH_DES40_CBC_SHA TLS_RSA_EXPORT1024_WITH_RC2_CBC_56_MD5 TLS_DH_anon_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA TLS_DH_anon_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA TLS_DH_anon_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA TLS_DH_anon_EXPORT_WITH_DES40_CBC_SHA Now, you will fi

Exchange Admin Center language

Depending on your computer language settings, Exchange Admin Center can take those and open in a language you actually don't want to use. You'll Google that this can be changed if administrator/ admin user has mailbox by openening OWA settings and changing Regional parameters. But usually Admin user does not have mailbox or you don't want her/him to have it. You will search again and find that you can add mkt=en-US (as an example) to the URL of the Exchange Admin Center (https://yourexchangehostname/ecp?ExchClientVer=15&mkt=en-US) Third option you have is opening Internet Explorer settings (I am using Windows 2016) Click languages Click Set Language Preferences Add language you want to use by clicking Add language Use Move up or Move Down options to put desired language on top Close Internet Explorer Open it again and login again to Exchange Admin Center
