We have an Exchange 2003 environment with RPC/HTTP and OWA. I want to disable OWA altogether while still allowing RPC/HTTP. Is there a way to do this?

do you want to disable OWA for all users or for few users.

through AD open the user account properties - Exchange feature and disable the OWA access for user.

this change will not affect RPC/HTTP as it can be in the status of allow or disallowed for all users.

This is a good point but I would like to disable it for all users. Really I would like to somehow take the OWA site down because even if a user is not allowed to login because of the AD setting, their account can still be intentionally locked out by another person putting in their username and random passwords.
