  • You clear the Require SSL check box on the Default Web Site website in the Internet Information Services Manager.
  • You select the Require SSL check box on the RPC virtual directory in the Internet Information Services Manager.
  • You wait 15 minutes, or you restart the Microsoft Exchange Service Host service.
In this scenario, the Require SSL check box is cleared on the RPC virtual directory.
