Your Out of Office settings cannot be displayed, because the server is currently unavailable. Try again later.

I am not able to set OOF on all Outlook 2007 clients, not able to download the OAB and not able to view the Schedule+Free Busy. But in Outlook Web App (OWA) I am able to set OOF and see the Free Busy information.
When I open Outlook to set OOF I get the error message "Your Out of Office settings cannot be displayed, because the server is currently unavailable. Try again later."


Ran Test E-Mail Autoconfiguration and it failed with error code 0x800C8203.



I am able to create the Outlook profile using the autodiscover and it work fine with no errors. Ran the command  netsh winhttp show proxy on the server to check if there is any proxy set from the server end but there wasn't any proxy set on the server.
Current WinHTTP proxy settings:
    Direct access (no proxy server)
Tried the IE proxy to check if it helps:
1. Open IE, click “Tools”->”Options”. Click “Connections”. Click “LAN Settings” button.
2. In the “Proxy server” section, please click “Advanced” button. 3. In the “Exceptions” section, there is an option “Do not use proxy server for addresses beginning with: exchangeservername;FQDN of ExchangeServer.
After doing the above No Luck.

Did the host file entey on the client machine, still getting the same error.
Found one Hotfix for Outlook 2007 client http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2475891 but it's already installed on the client.

Removed and Recreated the Autodiscover Virtual Directory:

    Thanks!!!

  2. Exchange powershell doesnot accepts this command "Remove-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory -Identity "Autodiscover (Default Web Site)" -Confirm:$false"

    You need to run this command from Exchange Management Shell, not the Windows PowerShell.

  4. Gulab says:

    Just run Remove-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory and it should remove the Virtual directory.
