Use the Outlook Anywhere tab to configure settings after you enable Outlook Anywhere on your Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Client Access server.

Outlook Anywhere has been enabled. For detailed steps, see Enable Outlook Anywhere.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Outlook Anywhere configuration settings" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.

noteNote:
You can also use the Shell to view general information about a server. For more information, see Get-ExchangeServer.
  1. In the console tree, navigate to Server Configuration > Client Access.

  2. In the work pane, select the server that you want to configure.

  3. In the action pane, click Properties.

  4. On the General tab, you can view general information about the server:

    • Version   This field displays the version of Exchange installed on the server.

    • Edition   This field displays the Exchange Server edition. The edition is either Standard Edition or Enterprise Edition.

    • Role(s)   This field displays the Exchange server roles installed on the server.

    • Product ID   This field displays the product ID for the Exchange server. If you haven't yet entered the product key for the server, the product ID displayed is Unlicensed. To license an unlicensed version of Exchange, see Enter Product Key.

    • Modified   This field displays the last date and time that a configuration change was made on this server.

  5. On the System Settings tab, view the domain controller servers and global catalog servers. You can also enable an error reporting feature:

    • Domain controller servers being used by Exchange   This read-only box displays a list of domain controller servers used by the Exchange server.

      noteNote:
      This box isn't available on Edge Transport servers.
    • Global catalog servers being used by Exchange   This read-only box displays a list of global catalog servers used by the Exchange server.

      noteNote:
      This box isn't available on Edge Transport servers.
    • Automatically send fatal service error report to Microsoft   Select this check box if you want to enable the error reporting feature and automatically send an error report to Microsoft in the event of a fatal error.

      If you enable the error reporting feature, information about fatal service errors is sent to Microsoft over encrypted channels. The information is used to improve Microsoft products.

      When this feature is enabled and the issue reported has a known solution, the server receives feedback from Microsoft. This feedback contains a link to information that may help resolve the problem.

  6. On the Customer Feedback Options tab, you can enroll the selected server into the Customer Experience Improvement Program. For more information, see Opt-in or Opt-out of the Customer Experience Improvement Program.

  7. Use the Outlook Anywhere tab to view or configure Outlook Anywhere settings. This tab is available only on servers that have the Client Access server role installed.

    • Status   This read-only field displays whether Outlook Anywhere is enabled or disabled for the server.

    • External host name   Use this text box to type the external host name or URL for your organization. Users will use this name to connect to the Exchange server by using Outlook Anywhere.

    • Client authentication method   There are three authentication options available for Outlook Anywhere.

      Basic authentication   Click this button to use Basic authentication. Basic authentication sends the user's user name and password in clear text. Basic authentication also requires the user to enter their domain, user name, and password every time they connect to the Client Access server.

      NTLM authentication   Click this button to use NTLM authentication. NTLM authentication is also known as Integrated Windows authentication. When NTLM authentication is used, the user's credentials aren't sent over the network. Instead, the client computer and the server exchange hashed values of the user's credentials. NTLM can also use the current Microsoft Windows operating system logon information.

      Even though it is more secure, NTLM may not work with firewalls that examine and modify traffic. For more information about whether you can use NTLM with your firewall, see your firewall manufacturer's documentation. We recommend that you choose NTLM authentication with SSL when you're using an advanced firewall server such as Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2006. ISA Server 2006 allows NTLM authentication to be used with Outlook Anywhere.

      Negotiate Ex authentication   Do not click this button. Negotiate Ex authentication is an authentication type reserved for future Microsoft use and shouldn't be used. Use of this setting will cause authentication to fail.

    • Allow secure channel (SSL) offloading   Select this check box if you will be using a separate server to handle Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption and decryption. When you use SSL offloading, the firewall in front of the Client Access server ends the SSL session and then establishes a new non-SSL session to the Client Access server.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Outlook Anywhere configuration settings" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.

This example sets the client authentication method to NTLM for a Client Access server named CAS01.

Set-OutlookAnywhere -Identity:CAS01\Rpc (Default Web Site) -ClientAuthenticationMethod:NTLM

This example turns on SSL offloading on the Client Access server named CAS01.

Set-OutlookAnywhere -Identity:CAS01\Rpc (Default Web Site) -SSLOffloading:$true

For more information about syntax and parameters, see Set-OutlookAnywhere.
