I've setup OWA on SBS 2003 so employees can go to mail.xxxx.com/exchange.  But if you go to mail.xxxx.com it brings up that website where they can log in remotely to a pc, etc ,etc.  How do I prevent that from coming up??

Nevermind, found the "enable default context page" check box and unchecked that.  Works fine now....

Where'd ya find THAT?  I've never seen an "enable default context page" check box.


Additionally, they would normally have to go to mail.xxxx.com/remote to get to the Remote Web Workplace main menu.  If you keep port 80 closed, then THAT is what would stop the "Welcome to.." page from displaying.  (This is also done by not selecting "Business Web Site (wwwroot)" in the CEICW).

You've never run the CEICW?  Then you haven't really installed your server completely.
