Hi all,

I need to redirect a sub-domain to a particular URL. What record do I need.

Sample:

http://mail.domain.com to "https://exchange.domain.com/owa"
https://mail.domain.com to "https://exchange.domain.com/owa"
http://exchange.domain.com to "https://exchange.domain.com/owa"


Thanks
RudyM

DNS translates name to IP address. You'll need the webserver to perform some sort of redirection for you.
I agree with the last post.  Do you host this Webserver on  your local network or do you have an ISP that is hosting the server for you?  You may need to an 'A'  (alias) record(s) or 'CNAME' record(s) on the web server to accomplish this it just depends if you control the web server or does the ISP control.

You can also check out this link for information on both types of records.

Looks like you have an Exchange 2007 or later server, and you want to simplify the webmail URL for your users.

There are specific methods for Exchange 2007, and for Exchange 2010.
(Both involve IIS, not DNS)

Tell us which version of Exchange you have, and we can tell you specific instructions for your environment that will accomplish what you need.

If you have Exchange 2010, here is a very good how-to:
