OWA 2007- can you create a URL to the Light client?

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Running Exchange 2007
We have OWA configured to pass through ISA in our DMZ and then onto multiple CAS

This question is about accessing OWA from the internal LAN and loading the Light client. If we connect from external, we get the OWA splash page where the choice of Full vs Light client can be made. However, we have OWA access from external sources locked down, so that only a subset of users have access to log into OWA via ISA.

If we create a URL pointing to the \owa virtual directory on our CAS, users are prompted for credentials and are then immediately logged into the Full client (if using IE). These users are logged onto our network and are not connecting from external.

Is there a way to modify the CAS URL to load the Light client instead of the Full?

 We don't want to change the default behavior, but we want to give a few users the option of using the Light client (without installing a non-IE browser, which would work). These users don't have access to external OWA, so we need to give them a link to the CAS.
