I can access OWA on my exchange 2010 server just fine, but I'm not sure how to view public folders via OWA.   If I go to "https://mail.domain.com/owa" internally I can see and view publc folders.  If I go to https://mail.domain.com/owa externally I don't even see an option for public folders.  I can send and recieve mail fine, but don't see anywhere to view public folders via OWA.  Is this possible with exchange 2010?  Thanks.

When I go to https://mail.domain.com/public it just logs me into my OWA and I can't see public folders.  Internally if I go to the same address I can access public folders.  Very wierd.

The /public VDir is redirected to /owa in E2010, just like the /Exchange one is.  The only way to get to PFs in OWA 2010 is to login to your mailbox, and then click the Public Folders button.  You can do this internally, but we need to find out why it doesn't work externally.  How many CAS servers do you have?

I have two CAS servers configured in a CAS array.  Thanks

I use "https:\\mail.domain.com\owa for both internal and external access.  I just can't acces public folders external.  Any ideas?

It works if I go to a single host and not the cas array
