Good Afternoon.

I am wanting to configuer Outlook Web Access, so that our employees are able to access their emails on the road or at home.
I have read a few internet articles, but nothing appears to make sense or even gives you instruction on the process.

Could someone point me to a good article or even give me advice on how to setup Outlook Web Access.
I am also a novice at IIS, so please be gentle.

Thanks Again

By default it should be set up.

go to the URL for your exchange server. i.e.  http://www.mysite.com/exchange

that should bring up the OWA page

As long as you have port 80 open in your firewall all should be cool

Good Afternoon.

sriwi,  I have read the article you pointed me in the direction of, it did indeed provide some useful information, but I can still not access my OWA from outside the organisation.

My organisation does not host it's on website, so when I do point the browser to www.mysite.com/exchange I get a DNS error.

I beleive that my settings are correct as I can get OWA to work within the organisation but not externally. Port 80 is open on my Firewall to the main server.

HELP

you should be able to access owa via your mx record.. ie  http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/exchange
but I would suggest going over a secure connection.

Good Morning.

My MX record in my DNS reads: online-systems.local (5)
Do I require an SSL Certificate in order for OWA to work?
