I have an iPhone which is working with Exchange for email / calendaring over the public internet.
I have a Mac with Outlook which is working with Exchange for email / calendaring but only over a VPN connection. My IT dept tells me I cannot check email over the public internet using outlook --- this sounds very questionable since my iphone is going over the public inet without issue.
The server URL's are quite different. I tried simply entering the public URL on the Mac but it wouldn't work over the public inet or on the VPN. I'm thinking there must be some kind of discovery happening on the iphone which is telling it where to go to sync mail / calendar over the public inet.
So my question is this: does anyone know of a way to get the proper URL's for the exchange server and directory service for Outlook from an iOS device (or at least maybe determine the URL's I should use based on the URL I'm entering on the iOS device)?
