Outlook Web Access question

Hi,

I've setup Outlook Web Access, Outlook using RPC over HTTPS and push mail using Windows Mobile on several sites now and am getting to grips with it.

I know you can set it up to use HTTP, negating the need for a SSL cert, but Windows Mobile needs this and so I've only done this with the cert.

Up to this point, I have only configured it with SBS, but have successfully set it up to use HTTPS on a standard server.

My problem is that with SBS, the wizard seems to setup something that will forward HTTP traffic to HTTPS.

i.e. if A record is pointing to remote.domain.com, and user types in the URL http://remote.domain.com/exchange they will automatically be forwarded to https://remote.domain.com/exchange and all is well.

Standard server does not have this by default and if a user types http://remote.domain.com/exchange they get an error message saying that they must use https.

I've 50 remote users that have been using http:// up until this point, and would be a real pain to have to contact them all and tell them to use https://

Whats the diffeence between the two? Can I implement the SBS "redirector" on a standard server?

Hi darraghcoffey,

You are correct, SBS will do this by default.

You can create a redirector like so;
