  • OWA URL redirection!! plz help

    Howdy, Experts

    I am just wondering if anyone can help my issue.

    using 2003 server which has IIS, Exchange.(tow NICs) A,B
    Default site is in used for www.domain.com

    domain's public ip is X.Y.Z.1(domain.com)---A
    domain's MX is X.Y.Z.2(mail/webmail.domain.com)---B

    domain.com point one of NIC on server, Mx record point others.
    that server is also member of domain.local.

    just implemented SSL on OWA(currently use https://domainname.com/exchange)
    works fine.

    firstly, I add webmail(A record) on our DNS server(FQDN is webmail.domain.local) to point our server(B)
    whenever I run mail.domainname.com, it opens website. I don't know why

    **
    How to add host like mail.domain.com?
    How to redirect "https://domainname.com" to "mail.domainname.com"
    just want to use simple url like mail.domain.com not like domain/exchagne

    Lots confused what to do(.local,.com???)


    Any suggestion would be great help.

    Have you bound specific IP addresses to specific web sites in IIS Manager? By default they are usually "All Unassigned". You would need to change that.
    You cannot use host headers with SSL so that isn't an option.

    Any reason why you are using two NICs? I would have put all of the external IP addresses on to the same NIC or teamed them. That makes management much easier.

        thanks for reply.


        What I did is that I created virtual folder on the IIS. then Redirect to /exchange

        So you can access domain.com/webmail which redirect to /exchange.

        this is only way i can deal with it.

        I am feeling need to study more and more.

        Thanks everyone, task done but I am not sure what's the best way.

          That is different to your original question.

          How to redirect webmail.domain.com is different to how to redirect domain.com/webmail .
          They require different techniques. The virtual directory method that you have outlined is the only way to redirect a directory.
