Answer: Yes
Also, You could use SSL Cert that is assigned by an internal cert authority. that ways, you would be rest assured that SSL isn't a costly deal for you.

It's possible, but not really a great idea. Using HTTP only will result in most traffic going in clear text, meaning it's possible for someone outside your organization to read traffic going between a user and OWA without any difficulty at all.

If you're okay with that, all you need to do is disable the Require SSL setting in IIS on your CAS server. Open IIS, go to the Default Website (or whichever is hosting your OWA), select SSL Settings in the middle screen and remove the checkmark next to Require SSL. Then run iisreset in the command prompt. Once you do this, your users will be able to access OWA through HTTP as well as HTTPS. Again, I don't recommend doing this.

OR you can redirect http://domain.com to https://domain.com that way users just type in http, but are automatically redirected to https without them doing anything.
this would be done in IIS
