MAC clients will not open archive mail items from the Internet (WAN) using RPC over HTTP

Dear All,

I installed Evault 11 on windows 2012 R2 failover cluster.

We configure imap clients as well.

Internally Outlook for WIndows , OWA and outlook anywhere works fine.

Internally Mac outlook 2011 and Mac mail using imap client work fine.

When we try to access archive email or search archive in outlook 2011 mac from INternet it open new window and failed.

We notice in the url it tries alias/enterprisevault but when we change it it work.

Please let me know how we can change this from netbios name to fqdn

I logged the call with Symantec support and they shared the article

Please let me know if we can change this ?
