This can be done at the DNS level.

I accomplished this through managing the forwards on subdomains.

Sorry, that description wasn't very clear.

I simply logged in to our account with our domain holder and set up a permanent redirect on the subdomain we wanted to go to the OWA address. In that, https was specified.

Sorry if that was a poor description before.
