Exchange 2003 2010 migration OWA legacy logoff web redirect

We are migrating Exchange 2003 to 2010.  The servers are co-existing nicely and OWA appears to be working correctly for users on both servers, except for a minor point.

For users whose mailboxes are still on Exchange 2003, logging into OWA 2010 correctly and successfully redirects them to OWA 2003.  However, when the user clicks Logoff, the OWA 2003 logon page appears.  We'd like this to return to the OWA 2010 logon page.

Is returning OWA 2003 mailbox users to the OWA 2003 logon page normal in a mixed 2003/2010 migration environment?  Or, did we miss a step in the 2010 implementation?
What's the best solution to redirect the OWA 2003 logon page URL back to the OWA 2010 logon page?

Our URLs:
Exchange 2003 - legacy.ourcompany.com
Exchange 2010 - mail.ourcompany.com
We utilize split DNS, so the URLs are identical internally and externally.

Hi,

This happens by design as once you have been redirected to legacy.yourcompany.com you are contained within that page and the logout function will do as it has always done.

You will have to edit your owalogon.asp on your EX2003 front end server(s) to redirect you back to mail.yourcompany.com, or at least add a link, if that is what you would like to happen.

Kalti,

Thanks much for your responses.  Assuming that the behavior was by design, I came to the same qualified conclusion that the 2003 owalogon.asp would have to be changed to redirect back to the 2010 logon page, hence the questions I've posted.  Thank you for confirming my previous assumption.

I'm familiar with the Technet article you provided, which goes far beyond my web content programming expertise.  I am (naively?) presuming that creating this specific redirection is relatively simple for someone with the experience.

Can the steps to do so be provided to me here?

Thanks much.
