Customizing OWA Logon page with company logo

I have searched this site all over and found many documents that would be perfect, but all the links seem to be outdated. I'm not too familiar with asp. files and so on. I would like to customize the logon page with my company colors and logo's. Is there an easy way to do this ?

This is the official guide:

There is also some on this page:
http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/OWA2003Forms-based-Authentication-default-domain.html

and this one

http://www.isaserver.org/articles/2004custfba.html

Ignore the bits about customising to change the default domain - if you are using Service Pack 2 for Exchange 2003 then the page was changed to remove the requirement for the domain\ part

Make sure that you keep a copy of original and the customised page, as it is likely to be replaced during a service pack or patch. You will then need to repeat the customisation because the page has actually changed. I would not advise simply putting your custom page back in.

Saying that, I don't tend to bother customise the login page.

I saw these articles, but the problem I had was that they are showing you all the 'Strings' but not how to actually modify the file itself. the code. So in other words, I want to add or change my logo. How do I add my logo? do I have to put it into a directory on the server ? Add a line in the asp file code to tell it where it is ? Sorry but I'm not familiar with all this

Rule number one with Exchange. If you don't know don't touch. It is all too easy to screw something up.

The page itself is just an ASP page. Therefore all you have to do is load it in to a web page editor and then adjust the code. As long as you leave the core form bit alone then the page should continue to work fine.

You will of course be working on a COPY of the original asp page.

As for any images, those go in the correct place that you enter in to the code of the web page. It could be in the same directory as the page itself.
