  • Hello,

    In exchange 2013, all outlook connectivity takes place via outlook anywhere anyways.

    If you don't have TMG or UAG, there is no way to realize it at the exchange level.

    So I recommend you leave the external hostname blank if you do not want your external clients to connect to Outlook Anywhere from internet.

  • Yep, Simply leave External Host Name blank as Cara said. That will cause a failure when OA is connected from the Internet.

  • This will stop outlook anywhere access for the user for outside only. Wait for 15 minutes afterrunning the command.
