Hi Fellow Experts,
I've installed Exchange 2010 Server and by default users are accessing it via https://webmail.domain.com/OWA.  However, we would want to use https://webmail.domain.com/GetMail instead.  How can this be achieved?
Thanks

To perform this you would have to redirect /GetMail directory to the /OWA directory.  This is performed in IIS.  You would need to create the /GetMail directory in IIS and then Redirect all traffic to that directory to /OWA.

Just created GetMail in root folder and made it an application in IIS with default.asp page which has response.redirect code.  But getting 404 error.  Please advise.

Not an application.  Just create a New Website under the Default WebSite called GetMail.  right click on it and go to properties and make it a redirection URL under the Virtual Directory tab and fill in the information, similar to this.
 Redirection

Click on the GetMail application in IIS and then open up the HTTP Redirect and check the Redirect Requests to this destination check box.  Make sure you type in the OWA url in the box provided.  If it uses HTTPS then make sure you use HTTPS.  IE.  https://yourdomain/owa
