OWA Web Access URL

I have setup Outlook Web Access on Exchange 2007 running ons SBS 2008. I have installed the SSL certificate. When I go to the  url https://webmail.domain.com i get a logo that says IIS7. How do I set OWA to come up to that url so that the login page is the landing page.

You need to setup a redirector which redirects https://webmail.domain.com to https://webmail.domain.com/owa

OWA - is the directory where Outlook web Exchange files are.

It would be nice if it were that easy. I don't have a properties option. I get

edit permissions
add application
add virtual directory
edit bindings
manage web site  =>
switch to content view

I should add that it is IIS7
This should be either in advanced or basic settings. I dont have a IIS 7 machine to look it up sorry.
Keep in mind you are adding a redirect on the default site, not the OWA directory.

I am not seeing this in IIS Manager. I have done it in IIS6 without any difficulty. There must be a different process here. Is there a link to something that can help me?

I am not sure the problem is the redirect. I thought I would try from the server. I typed in and I receive a directory not found error. When I type I get the IIS7 page. There must be something missing with the owa folder. The folder is there. How can I check to see if it is setup properly?
