I really need to get autodiscover working. I have attempted this twice, and given up twice. Everything seems to be in place, but it just doesn't work. I think I am making progress though because I found something new I didn't see before.
First, what works. DNS is setup and everything seems to resolve ok. I have Certify the Web providing wildcard certs so anything coming in for a supported domain has a valid cert. The bindings are working in IIS as I can get to the login page using any of my host headers. The settings in SmarterMail are pretty default, at this point I am still only worried about IMAP, POP, and SMTP. I will license and add MAPI/EWS and EAS once I can get this working.
If I enter an invalid username and password combination the Basic Authentication dialog just resets and give me another try. Typically with basic auth you shoudl get 3-5 attempts and then a 401 error, but this seems to let me try indefinitely, which might be a security issue as it allows for automated brute force attempts at password guessing.
If I enter a valid username and password instead of getting the expected autodiscover.xml document, I get this:
Invalid XML Request - Error: User does not exist.
