Testing Exchange connectivity

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:

  1. Your Outlook email address and password.
  2. 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.
