(FAQ) MDaemon 13x: What is the ActiveSync AutoDiscover Service?
What is the ActiveSync AutoDiscover Service?
Autodiscover allows users to set up an ActiveSync account with just their email address and password, without needing to know the host name of the ActiveSync server. Autodiscover requires WorldClient to listen on HTTPS (443). See related articles on how to configure this.
For most systems, it also requires that a new CNAME or A record be added to DNS. 'autodiscover.yourdomainname.com' should resolve to the server running ActiveSync.
