Configure an External Host Name for Outlook Anywhere

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

You can create an external host name for Outlook Anywhere on a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Client Access server.

If you manage more than one Exchange site, we recommend that you create separate external host names for each site that has a Client Access server that's enabled for Outlook Anywhere. When you create a separate external host name for each site, Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 clients automatically use the Client Access server that's closest to their mailbox.

noteNote:
Users who are using Outlook 2003 must have their profiles manually updated to use the external host name that is closest to their mailbox.
