Hello Brett F,
Thanks for the post in the forum.
Can you visit the tool site www.testexchangeconnectivity.com and switch to the office 365 tab and under the Microsoft Office Outlook Connectivity tests
run the Outlook Anywhere (RPC over Http) test. Run the test using autodiscover to discover setting. Use your Offrice 365 mailbox info.
The email address and the Microsoft Online login ID are the same. Please post the results of that log that it generates from the test.

Hello Brett F,
I suggest you try this:
While Outlook is running, click the CTRL key and then right-click the Outlook icon in the system tray and then select “Test Email Autoconfiguration”.
2. Confirm that your email address is in the address field; uncheck “Use Guessmart” and “secure Guessmartauthentication” boxes. Then click the “Test” button.
3. Once it runs, capture a screen shot of the Log tab and Results tab.
If autodiscover does not work, please refer to the following article to deploy the autodiscover service between the AD forests:
If you have additional questions or concerns feel free to post on the forum.
I was quite shocked to learn of the depenancy of autodiscover as we are manually configuring clients at this time. I have made an addditional ALIAS to Outlook.com's CN and it seems to be working now. That is a bug / has to be fixed. In a hybrid /on-premise / cloud solution, the OOO cannot be dependant on a DNS entry, that is just silly.
