Not a question:

I was setting up a new Exchange Server and testing Outlook Anywhere. It took about 30 seconds before it would even make a connection. After troubleshooting, I found that it wasn't even trying to connect over HTTPS but RPC. Eventually I found that it was because of a wildcard record on the public DNS domain was pointing to a windows server that was listening on port 135. I deleted the wildcard record and since it couldn't resolve the internal name of the server, it connected right away to Outlook Anywhere. As far as I found, there is no documentation of this particular problem anywhere online.

✔ Best Answer
This would be better done as a 'How-to' in order for it to be kept. Would you like to re-do it as such?
