Exchange 2007 OWA redirection breaks Outlook anywhere

Hi all,

I have a fairly standard Exchange 2007 SP1 implementation;  1 x CAS/Hub server and CCR cluster.  Running on Windows Server 2008 SP2.

-OWA works, no problem.  I have a cert so https is fine.
-Outlook Anywhere works fine.

CAS/Hub is behind Juniper firewall.

I wanted to simplify the OWA URL so users didn't have to remember to add /owa at the end of the URL, so I followed the instructions at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998359(EXCHG.80).aspx which is straight forward.

After this, OWA redirection works great, users no longer need to add /owa to the URL.  However, it broke Outlook Anywhere.

I removed the redirection and Outlook Anywhere works again.

My simple mind sees cause and effect, so I guess this has to do with the redirection.  Redirection off OA works.  Redirection on, OA doesn't work.  Redirection off, OA works.

Only the default web site was redirected, I removed the inherited redirection from the sub directories.

Can anyone suggest a solution for this?  It seems like I can have one or the  other but not both.  Is there some other way to redirect?  We don't have ISA or TMG.

I'm in UK won't won't be checking answers until the morning so don't think me ignorant if I don't reply straight away :o)

Many thanks,
