Sup experts.
We just upgraded our server too 2008 sbs.
We were running 2000 server and when we used owa we would to to

We never used SSL.
Now when we go I get the default IIS7 page that shows IIS7 in big letters and all the other languages.

What do I need to do in order to get it to show OWA? I am so lost and I know this is a simple fix.

Where can I change it so it stays

Also we never used https nor have an SSL

Do I need to use https regardless? Is this an IIS 7 thing

the settings to change it to may be a pain to implement.
Its easier to set up a redirect page on the default site to redirect it to the right place.
Thats much easier.

also, webmail is setup on https only. You really shouldn't set it to http, but it is possible.
if you;re sure you want to, try this thread:
