Hello, we have migrated a client from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010. Initially when the client was on exchange 2003, all they had to do from the outside world was type in https://mail.domain.com to hit their OWA site. Now that we've moved them to exchange 2010, it seems that we have to add the /exchange at the end. Otherwise if we browse to https://mail.domain.com, we hit the main IIS 7 site. Any easy suggestions on getting this back to the way it was? Thank you.

If you have ISA server publishing the URL to the outside world you can create a deny rule, that redirects https://mail.domain.com to https://mail.domain.com/exchange
If the https requests are going directly to the IIS of the exchange 2010 client access server you can configure the root of the IIS to redirect all requests to the /exchange virtual directory.
demazter's link is fantastic to explain you how to do it if the requests are going direct to exchange CAS

in the iisstart page on the exchange 2010 CAS server you can also do a redirect to the url you want.
