Change link in RWW

I have SBS 2003 for just 5 users.  Over time the administration for this server, especially in exchange, has become too difficult and time consuming.  I have changed the exchange over to a hosted exchange service.

All is set up fine and working.  The only "glitch" in the changeover is that when users access teh Remote Web Workplace and click on use outlook web access, they are pointed to the old server.  How do I change this? Or at least change the link so taht when pressed it goes to the new service's login page.

you may need to change your DNS entry at your ISP to point to the new OWA server.

You can't have the users access their OWA from the RWW website if the email is hosted by a third party.  RWW is providing a direct link into IIS with authentication.  You will need to have users access OWA by going to:
https://mail.domainname/exchange

You should contact your Hosted Exchange Service for exact details on how they have this configured.

Can i at least edit the RWW page somehow to remove that link? (use outlook web access..)

If I can just put another link there, that would work...   It does not have to integrate directly but it could just link to the new OWA host's login page no?

To change the RWW page and remove the OWA link for users open your Registry on the SBS server and go to:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SmallBusinessServer\RemoteUserPortal\KWLinks
Chnage the OWA D-Word value to 0 (zero)

To change the RWW page and remote the OWA link for Administrators open your Registry on the SBS server and go to:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SmallBusinessServer\RemoteUserPortal\AdminLinks
Chnage the OWA D-Word value to 0 (zero)

OK, so insead of the value of 0, can I put in, say, http://www.somedomain.com?  That way users would have a link to their email?

In the registry the 1 and 0 values are an ON/OFF switch.  You can not change the link there.  So you would want change the value for the existing link to OFF and then try to edit the actual web page to include the new link.  The RWW web page for clients is located at:
c:\inetpub\remote\client.aspx

I don't know enought about webpages to tell you how to edit the page though.  If you do this, make sure you have a backup of the webpage in case something goes wrong.
