PHP redirect to SSL

I haved used this script for the past year or so with a home made SSL which worked fine but I always got the warning page about my certificates validity etc. Anyway, I purchased a SSL from GO daddy today but now I get a web page stating..

<?php

header( 'Location: http://remote.claybar.com/exchange' ) ;

?>


All I really want is for the users to be able to type in www.claybar.com/mail and have it redirect to http://remote.claybar.com which has the SSL cert.

Also. When I go into the IIS server and click on option to Enable SSL and 128 bit encryption I am presented with a dialog box regarding inheritance overrides regarding "UNCPassword" property and "AccessSSLFlags"

I am unsure if I should tell IIS to assign my new option to all these child nodes or not.  

THANK YOU.. I tried to assign alot of points because I am aware this is a multipart question.  My PHP is running on Ipowerweb and is set to PHP version 5
<DIR><FONT size=2>
<P>&lt;?php</P>
<P>header( 'Location: h</FONT><U><FONT color=#0000ff size=2>ttp://remote.claybar.com/exchange'</U></FONT><FONT size=2> ) ;</P>
<P>?&gt;</P></DIR></FONT>

you could also just put an HTML redirect page in that virutal directory that would be easier as you could use html, rather than PHP. Unless  your web server is of course php.

mod_rewrite is more suited for this.

1. Place a file called .htaccess (including the dot in front.) in your root folder for www.claybar.com/mail.
2. Open any editor and insert the following lines

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
 RewriteRule (.*) http://remote.claybar.com/

3. Save it and you are good to go.

This was perfect, and I learned alot about .htaccess after the fact too. Thank you and I am sorry for the long time to accept, I had given up on an answer.
