Hi, may I know how to redirect something like http://server1.mydomain.com/exchange to a friendlier address like http://mydomain.com in IIS. What I'm trying to achieve is to redirect the http address for my OWA so that we don't need to append /exchange at the back of the URL

You have two things here.

1. The DNS
2. Removing the /exchange

You need to handle them separately.

I don't recommend using your domain name only for anything - it can cause problems with certain sites and limits your future options. Always use a host in your domain.
Furthermore you cannot get an SSL certificate on the root of the domain.

Therefore you could setup in the DNS of your external domain a new host called mail or owa, and point it at your external IP address. This would allow users to enter mail.domain.com or owa.domain.com as the address for OWA.
You could then get an SSL certificate from a a third party provider to protect the site, so that Exchange would be accessed on https://mail.domain.com/ 

For removing the /exchange requirement, that is a simple change to the IIS configuration which I have outlined here: http://www.amset.info/exchange/owa-defaultpage.asp

It works best with Forms Based Authentication on Exchange 2003.

Simon.
