OWA Redirect

Posted on 2009-05-04
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Until recently, our website was on the same server as our mail server.  I have since fixed that, and put a new server in our DMZ, not part of the domain (for security reasons).  For some reason, now when you go to, it says it can't find it.  I have a redirect setup in IIS so that /exchange, will point to my mail server (  It appears as though the redirect works, as i see the browser changing addresses.  However, if I type the Ip address of our mail server/exchange (i.e. http://x.x.x.x/exchange), that works.  Ideas?

Sounds like a dns to me.

You have a DNS issue. is not correctly resolving to the proper IP address. Are you testing internally? If so, I would expect there to be a problem - perform all tests from an externally connected machine and then post back.

If it does not work from an external machine, what happens if you have the redirect modified to redirect to the external IP of Exchange, rather than the domain name?

You have failed to answer the Expert comments which have been posted. Based on the information posted I would say with very high certainty that this was DNS-related, and needed configuring in external DNS to map to the public IP of the Exchange Server.

the experts questions are irrelevant.  I found more problems with the configuration and need to revert back.  I will post a separate question.

Actually, the problem was resolved with a reboot of the exchange server.
