server 1 and 2 are both hosting mailboxes
the only way to get mail on each server through owa is to add an additional FE server and leave the other two as BE i.e server 1 and 2

yeah sites are connected via vpn

at the mo we haven't migrated across to the new system so mx record corrently points to the old system

have created 2 dns records on the internet server1.domain.com and server2.domain.com and they point to the respective ip address of the firewalls, port forwarding all working correctly to go to the exchange server in that firewalls site

if you want to get owa on both they need to be both accesible from the internet or else use the FE/BE solution
in your case from what it appears server 1 is the only 1 accessible from the internet
when you connect via OWA to server 2 it redirects you to the server1 this is what it does

i have sorted it all the setting up was done on server1 so the mailbox was assigned to that server, i moved the mailbox to server2 in system manager and its all working ok now

sorry to have wasted your time (i feel like a bit of a plum but had time pressures)

thanks very much for trying to help

Exchange server is not supported in any cloud-hosted platform (other than Azure with Azure Premium Storage).
ADCs have gained traction within the last decade, largely due to increased demand for legacy load balancing appliances to handle more advanced application delivery requirements and improve application performance.
