Exchange 2010 OWA Customisation

Hi,

We have sucessfully installed an Exchange 2010 Server SP1. We are trying to customise OWA. We would like to get it so that logon internally is automatic and goes straight through and logon externally is possible when a username and password are provided.

Currently the Outlook Web App login screen comes up whether we are internal or external. Is there any way to get this to auto logon internally? We have currently made no customisations to OWA.

Thanks

the only way to do this is having an ISA/TMG in front of your exchange

in that case you will enable form based authentication on your ISA/TMG and enable basic and integrated authentication on Exchange

Try these settings on the PCs Internet Explorer and not OWA.
Configure the local intranet zone user authentication settings to "automatic logon in intranet zone"
Then add your OWA URL to the Local Intranet zone.

There were two places, one in IIS as you suggested, setting integrated and basic authentication. The other is in Exchange Server Manager, Server Configuration, Client Access and set the OWA authentication to standard authentication rather than forms based.

Cheers!
