Setting up Remote File Access through OWA 2010 intreface

Hi
we have implemented  Exchange 2010 for all  400 users and we have given OWA 2010 for all the users to access from external world. Is it possible to setup so that users  remotely  access their documents and resources which is on our servers through OWA interface .

Thanks

Yes it is. If you go to Server Configuration\Client Access in EMC, then right click on the default OWA policy, you can configure access through the tab in the properties for that. You can also create a new OWA policy to assign to specific users if you wish.

Actually, never mind. It's possible to configure it in the 2010 EMC, but the functionality in OWA was apparently discontinued with Exchange 2010.

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

Pretty confusing, since my Exchange 2010 study material seems to mention that functionality quite often.

To be clearer, the ability to access file shares through OWA was removed from Exchange 2010. It's possible to configure it in EMC just as in Exchange 2007, but Exchange 2010's OWA does not have a method for accessing file shares. My guess is that they chose to move this functionality to Sharepoint 2010, but I can't be sure.

Looks like it could work, but I have no experience with it, so I'm not really qualified to give you a firm recommendation.
