Hello all,

I want to know if there is a way to access OWA over HTTP only. For some reason when i enter http://server/exchange or http://domainname/exchange it redirects me to https. This wouldnt be a problem but I have my firewall forwarding 443 elsewhere. The OS is SBS2003 R2.

thanks in advance.

    Well, you certainly can, but I don't recommend it.  You'll need to remove the SSL certificate from IIS and disable the requirement for SSL on the Exchange Virtual Directory as well as on the ExchWeb/bin/auth and Public virtual directories.

    You really would be better off using an additional External IP address so you can route SSL to both places.
