Although that could have been phrased a bit friendlier, Pauska is right. If you want an answer to your question, put some effort in it by formatting it correctly and accepting answers to previous questions. – Aron Rotteveel Feb 2 '11 at 10:03

It might be better to describe your actual problem - this all looks very normal to me. My Autodiscover is working just fine and I also get a 404 error for login.aspx and an XML error for AutoDiscover.xml - just because they don't load in a web browser, it doesn't mean Autodiscover is broken.

By far the best way to test Autodiscover is using Outlook (or if you're testing external Autodiscover). In the system tray, hold Ctrl and right click on the Outlook icon and choose Test E-mail AutoConfiguration. If you get any errors, please edit your original question to include them.
