  • Configuring to auto redirect for owa use

    Hey all,

    I have an problem.

    I configured owa in exchange2003 (Windows SBS 2003) correctly to use OWA. This is working fine. I also added a alias by our DNS vendor to redirect to the correct public IP adres of the server.

    This is also working fine.

    I also made users it easier by automaticly redirect http to https. For example instead typing:, users type http://...

    I did this by using an article found on
    "Securing Exchange Server 2003 & Outlook Web Access: Chapter 5 on"

    Near the end of this article it describes how i can make an asp page that auto redirects http to https.

    This is also working fine... it redirects correctly http requests to https.

    But i want one thing extra. That is when i type in the IE:, that it directly redirect to OWA.
    instead typing ""

    So how can i make this work?
    What must i configure in more IIS on the server?

    Please help!

    Thanx in advanced!

    I've done the same thing using a basic Javascript page.

    If you go to your IIS web root...default is c:\inetpub\wwwroot and create a file default.htm in there.

    inside the default.htm add the following code:

    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE='JavaScript'>window.location='';</script>

    As its called default.htm when your users type it will read this file and redirect them to your exchange folder

      I know the answer has already been posted but this site has a lot of useful demos on how to set this up as well as others. Definately worth a visit and keep an eye on it
