How to Remove OWA Links from Remote Web Workplace for SBS 2003

We currently run an SBS 2003 server at my job with Exchange. We are discontinuing our use of Exchange but would like to keep SBS 2003.

Is there a way to disable or remove the OWA or Outlook Web Access links from the Remote Web Workplace website? We have a different site to login for our email access now, and don't want to confuse the users. I have been able to locate some of the Remote Web Workplace pages but not the ones I am talking about that you see after logging in.

Is this possible?  Or can I at least change where these links point to and have them go to our new email URL?

I can figure out how to edit the default landing page, but can't find the page you see after logging in that has the big "Check my Company Mail" link at the left side on the top of a list of 5 links.

I'm attaching a screenshot of the page I want to either drop the mail link from, or change it to point to a different URL.

Well, once you reach the page that has the "Read my company e-mail" on it, look at the address bar and see what page it is accessing. You should have access to modify that page via the directory noted in the link above.

the URL points to a /Remote/Default.aspx file.  Upon looking at this file it only contains the following code...which clearly has no images / links to change or remove. Since it references loading.aspx I attached that pages code as well...which also has nothing I can edit.

In the first line it references a "default.aspx.cs" file which is a Visual Studio project. You can edit the project in Visual Studio. I don't know what the code will like until we get in there.

If you don't have Visual Studio you can download a fully functional trial here:
