Is Exchange 2007 Web Services normally avaliable in companies?

I looking to develop an application using Web Services and I need to know if most Exchange installations leave Web Services avaliable for their company?  I also need to know if it will be accessible via the Internet like OWA often is?

I know Exchange Web Services is installed by default with a Client Access Server Role, but do admins normally turn it off?

Pointers to something to back up what you say would be good too.

Outlook Web Access is usually enabled. If access is restricted it will be outside access, internally it is usually enabled.

OWA cannot really be turned off server wide because of the integration. It would need to be turned off on a per user basis.

I cannot answer the question. Exchange Web Services is too new and there is very little written about. I cannot think of a single deployment I have done where it has been used or even asked about. I doubt whether many administrators will even know it exists.
It appears that autodiscover uses it, so I suspect if it is disabled it will affect the operation of that feature.

I don't think many admins would think of removing the EWS VDir, since I guess they wouldn't even know it was there.  It will be available via port 80 or 443 from the Internet just like the older /Exchange VDir was for WebDAV access, though of course, it's not meant to be accessed directly from a browser.
