redirecting owa on server 2008 IIS7

Is there a way to redirect OWA to the default site if a user doesn't type in the correct OWA address in the browser.  Our setup is https://webmail.company.com/owa and I was wondering if our users could simply type webmail.company.com and be directed to the default owa address.

yup. create a index.html page with the below content
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=/exchange"> where exchange is the virtual directory you want it to be redirected.
also make sure that index.html is there in your default document lists on IIS virtual directory property.

Good advice, but it looks like the OP has E2007, so the URL=/owa .

Could you be a little more specific on the instructions?  There is already an index.html in there and I am very new to IIS7.  How do I edit that file if that is the file to edit?

add the below line as the first line in index.html. you could edit it using notepad. i would recommend if the below line alone is the only content of index.html, you could remove anything thats already there (ctrl+A,del) and paste the below line.

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=/owa">

I appreciate the promptness.  We had a consultant working on this and they came up with something they already had in the arsenal.

The responses here to the question do not address the problem - it explains how to redirect the page to the /owa directory - but not HTTP to HTTPS.
