how do you use owa if the exchange domain name is domain name.local

I have client that has exchange that some one else setup.  since his computers are internal to the network exchange works fine.  but I need to setup owa for him.  the local domain name for the exchange server is domainname1.local.  email address is domainname2.com.  what is the url for owa. and what is the dns setting I have to create to make it work.

Hi,

You need to registre required OWA URL with the ISP. The URL should resolve to the public ip address of the server.

The URL may be mail.domain.com which will be pointed to public ip address.

Hope this helps,
Shree

domainname2.com resolves to public ip address of router at office.  but if I try to go to owa.domainname2.com/exchange I don't get to the exchange server.  so I don't know what part I'm missing.

thanks

Does the owa.domainname2.com is resolving to public ip address? If not then try domainname2.com/exchange

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Or try domainname2.com/owa

But as shree says, it is worth adding another name to DNS like mail.domainname2.com or owa.domainname2.com that points to the public IP of your server/router.

Then check and forward port 80 & 443 to your internal OWA ip address. 443 (ssl) is recommended to be used.
