We are in the middle of starting to implement Smartphones & pdas and getting away from blackberrys. With that comes the deployment of OMA. To do the deployment of the OMA we needed to have the PDAs connect to the exchange server through the SSL port (as you know port 443.)
That was accomplished easily however theres one issue, on apprx, 200 laptops there are icons that point to webmail with an http
: prefix. webmail.cpg-vycom.com
Users connect to webmail.cpg-vycom.com (which defaults to the http://
prefix), however, because now with the SSL authentication on the site, if you dont log in through port 443 w/ the https
: prefix you dont hit the site.
I have read over the Microsoft documentation on what to do within IIS on exchange and nothing has worked so far. Ive created a virtual directory which contains an ASP page with code to re-direct the user to the https://webmail.cpg-vycom.com/exchange
page. Ive also double checked all the authentication levels in which MS told me to set the different web sites / virtual directories at and everything is set correctly.
I didnt know if anyone has run into this issue before however i'm on a time crunch as this has affected the users trying to get into webmail (by using their shortcut on their desktop) and all they get is a blank page.
