Hi There!

Does anyone know how you can configure dns so that when someone grabs their iPhone or other mobile phone and enters their email address the server settings are correctly populated?

Thanks in advance.

I think you need to have an autodiscover or something like that?

Smartphone attempt to connect to Autodiscover by performing a DNS lookup for “autodiscover.smtpdomainname"

The smartphone will then attempt to autodiscover the Exchange server by looking up “autodiscover.smtpdomainname” in DNS. If it can resolve that name it will then connect to https://autodiscover.smtpdomainname/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml to retrieve Exchange server information.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Just to add that autodiscover is a CNAME record
