The Microsoft Remote Connectivity Analyzer is a useful tool for several purposes:
- Determining your EWS URL (if EWS is enabled).
- Verifying that your work email is managed on an Exchange server.
- Verifying Exchange connectivity.
To use this tool, you'll need:
- Your Outlook email address and password.
- Your Domain\UserName - Enter your email in this field if Domain\UserName are not used in your organization.
- The domain: This can usually be found in the documentation explaining how to connect a mobile phone or email client to your work mail account.
- Your user name: This is usually the internal ID with which you log into internal systems.
Open Microsoft Remote Connectivity Analyzer and follow these steps:
- Select the Synchronization, Notification, Availability, and Automatic Replies option (Figure 1).
- Fill out (all fields are required): Email, Password and Domain\UserName (with a backslash). Try your email address if you don't know your Domain\UserName (Figure 2).
- Check the "I understand..." checkbox (Figure 2).
- Complete the verification test and click Verify (Figure 3).
- Click the Perform Test button (Figure 3).
- Wait for the results and verify that the connectivity icon is green.
