register the dns webmail.mycompany.org and point it to the public ip of your exchange server.

On your exchange server, in c:\inetpub\wwwroot create a file called default.asp with the following contents

<%
response.redirect "http://webmail.mycompany.org/exchange"  [or https:// if you have got ssl enabled]
%>

Open IIS, and for the site that has your OWA (by default its your default web site, click on it and check to ensure for default document, default.asp is enabled.

Now what will happen is that if anyone goes to webmail.mycompany.org, they will automatically get redirected to the /exchange link

There is also a http redirect option but i havent used it.
