hello, we are using this method to redirect http://mail.mydomain.com to https://mail.mydomain.com/owa 
code saved below as default.htm and placed in inetpub / wwwroot folder
however we've noticed that users can still type: http://mail.mydomain.com/owa and connect on an unsecure channel. how can we modify this to catch http://mai.mydomain.com/.... requests and redirect to ssl
<html> 
<head runat="server"> 
<title>Outlook Web Access</title> 
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> 
function redirect() 
{ 
    var URL; 
    var Protocol; 
    var Path; 
    // this will be whatever is in the browser. If you need to change this then comment out relevant line below 
    // Protocol = window.location.protocol + "//" 
    // Protocol = "http://" 
    Protocol = "https://" 
    Path = window.location.hostname + window.location.pathname + "owa" 
    window.location.href = Protocol + Path 
} 
</script> 
</head> 
<body onload="redirect()"> 
</body> 
</html>

thx. thats a good option. is there a way to set the redirect on the hdw load balancer for all virtual directories, rather than use this script to modify the IIS settings?

that code will catch both http and https the issue is that on your default website you have the require ssl checkbox checked

as far as your hardware load balancer is concerned you need to check the documentation of the brand/model you have but yes you should be able to do that
