I'm a little confused with autodiscovery. I have as a secondary name in my SSL. i have an A record setup for"autodiscovery" on my ISP DNS which points to my email server. However I do not have any SRV records internally... What other steps do I need to take?

Take a look at this article, its probably one of the best I've seen for setting up Autodiscover. (not autodiscovery) It should hopefully get you pointed in the right direction.

Also, what type of cert did you get? Was it a UC?

I got the recommended cert from Godaddy. Multi domain. Looks like a good article. I think I need to wait for the A record to provision before I get ahead of myself... – Seth Feb 24 '11 at 15:29
Wait for the A record to provision? What do you mean? If you created an A record it should be available immediately. – joeqwerty Feb 24 '11 at 15:30
...good catch though, I had the DNS record as autodiscovery... – Seth Feb 24 '11 at 15:31
DNS with the I not need that? – Seth Feb 24 '11 at 15:31
Sounds like it may just be a DNS name issue, outlook is hardwired to look for specific addresses. – DanBig Feb 24 '11 at 15:33
