    So? Why not do what it tells you? You might even learn a tihng or two while you're there...

    Anyway, in order to use HTTPS (or SSL) you need to setup the website to have a certificate and to use it. Follow the tip found on my site (use the search bar) and see how to properly do it.

        Oh, ok. So in that case you need to setup a new virtual server in IIS, make it use the host header you want - owa.blah.com - and configure it to use SSL. Next, point it to the blah.com/exchange virtual directory on the default website.

            First create a new virtual website.

            Then set the host header on the new site you created...




            Then set the home directory to redirect to the url you want...


            One caveat to this is that you can't use host headers if you're using 1 IP, SSL and >1 website. This is because the header of the HTTP request is encryted and can't be read to be forwarded to the correct website. Therefore all encrypted headers will always default to the default virtual website unless you're using a different port for SSL on each website.

            If you need to use more than 1 site, SSL, and host headers you need to look at Content Management Server Enterprise Ed. but keep in mind it's $25k.

              Well said! No if you'd only add a detailed step-by-step guide and send it to me I'll upload it to the site (with credits of course).
