If you want to use authentication the user needs to be able to use SMTP authentication on the Exchange Server. The connector also needs to be able to access the port 25 TLS.

This problem can be caused by the Windows Defender or other third party anti virus solutions. Add the following paths to the exclusions:

You can find the installation file for the Outlook add-in under

All rules marked as (Internal) are created for internal communication to specific machines. They can be further limited by e.g. configuring an IP range for which machines they should be applied (recommended for rules that are applied on public profiles).
For every rule you can find the port and program it applies to.

The Exchange Server Toolbox can be easily used in a shadow redundancy configuration. You need a seperate installation and license for every Exchange Server. One of the installations should be set up as master with all other installations configured as clients.

An email that arrives at one of the Exchange Servers is processed by its local Exchange Server Toolbox installation regardless of whether it is the master or a client. The rules are applied locally, which means that rules with the condition "Machine name equals text" can be used here.

The master installation is always used for archiving, regardless of which installation processed the email. This also means that to use the Outlook Add-in's archive search functionality, Outlook installations need to connect to the master installation.
In case the master installation cannot be reached the Exchange Server Toolbox will store the emails in a local queue with built in failure protection and relay them to the master installation as soon as it is reachable again.
