Is there a way to have users typing outlook email from internet to be redirected to https?

Hello,

We are setting up OWA and when users type outlookemail from the web browser it defaults to http and the page is not found.  Is there a way to redirect to https for users outside the company?  I'm not sure if this has to be done on our Cisco Firewall or what if they are at home and traveling so they don't have to always remember https

takecoffee offered you the "best practice" solution to accomplish this.  I'll follow up with some additional info.

You need to open IIS and use the http redirect module at the top(site) level.  Redirect to the appropriate owa URL (ex: https://mail.domain.com/owa).  

Then remove(uncheck) HTTP redirect for the following application underneath the site:
aspnet_client
Autodiscover
ecp
ews
microsoft-server-activesync
powershell
rpc
rpcwithcert

After you do this go back to the top(site) level and choose SSL settings and uncheck "require SSL".  This should now force redirect http to https.

the concern is if they are outside the company they can use any computer with internet to access, but have to remember HTTPS: now or it won't work.  Want them to be able to from any computer enter address and HTTP redirect
