Exchange 2003 OWA setup. Different than the defaults

I've "inherited" an exchange server that is setup differently than the normal setup.  The IIS and exchange settings are different than what I know. (Skill set is lacking in this area)  The exchange server is setup on the D partition.  Some how, to access the OWA URL, they have to type in mail.company.com/exchange.  I know that there is a way to switch it to mail.company.com.  The default website in IIS is different.  I'm not sure how to go about fixing this without jacking up OWA.  

Thank God for the backup and restore features in IIS.  Because of this problem, I can't even get the OMA or other Exchange admin web interface applications to function properly.  

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

we used a redirect in IIS to redirect the default website to mail.company.com/exchange - if it is setup as mail.company.com/exchange then you should be able to put a redirect on the default website (mail.company.com) that redirects to mail.company.com/exchange.
That way when users go to mail.company.com it redirects to mail.company.com/exchange - it is also possible to redirect HTTP connections to HTTPS connections by editing one or the custom error pages.
