IIS Redirect

I have OWA set up at https://exchange.company.com/exchange. The address used to be https://company.com/exchange, and many people (despite me telling them to use the new address) still attempt to use https://company.com/exchange.  How do I create a redirect in IIS so that can happen?  I know I have to point it via the properties, but the virtual directory does not exist. When creating the VD, where do I point it to?  

Thank you.

The virtual directory can be anything. Make it c:\tempredirect or something simple when you first create the web site in IIS Manager.

Once it's created, you can go to the site properties, home directory tab, and change the radio button to "A redirection to a URL" and enter the new URL there.

Ok new problem.  It wants IIS.  If I go to https://domain.com/exchange it says page cannot be displayed now.

Are both the current URL and the old URL on the same machine? or you're pointing from one machine to another?

I moved servers and everyone now goes to the new server.  I'd like to close this question out.
