    You have to do this by editing the IIS virtual site the Default Web Site on your CAS server.
    1. Open IIS Manager
    2. Navigate down to Default Web Site
    3. Select HTTP Redirect from the icons on the right
    4. Check redirect requests to this destination and add /owa to the filed below
    5. Make you you also check the "Only re-direct requests to content in this directory" option
    6. Apply the settings and stop and start the Default website

    You can test this easily by entering https://yourserver/ in a browser.
