As well as using Outlook 2007 to test Auto configuration and the Autodiscover/Availability services, for a computer that is running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 that has the Client Access (CAS) server role installed, a cmdlet called Test-OutlookWebServices can be used to verify the Autodiscover service settings for Outlook Web services.
The Test-OutlookWebServices cmdlet uses a specified e-mail address to verify that the Outlook provider is configured correctly. The cmdlet verifies information for the following services:
- Availability service
- Outlook Anywhere (for example, RPC over HTTPS)
- Offline Address Book
- Unified Messaging
This code example tests a connection to each service. This example also submits a request to the Availability service for the user email@example.com to determine whether the user's free/busy information is being returned correctly from the CAS server to the Outlook 2007 client.
