Exchange 2013 mail redirect not working

I just migrated from ex 2007 to ex 2013.  I got most of the bugs fixed, but just discovered another problem yesterday.

Externally, when people try to access mail.domain.com, it serves the following error:

403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.


When going to https://mail.domain.com,  that works fine, it redirects to my OWA.

Any idea's how to fix this, how to get the mail.domain.com to also redirect to my owa?

Thanks,
Dan

Is it working inside?
If it is working from inside please remove the tick "Require SSL" in IIS "SSL settings"

Hello,

I recommend against allowing your users to use the non-SSL URL. Instead, follow the steps in this article to redirect your users to the https URL.

I tried performing the steps in that article, but then what happens is, when I do the redirect on the default web page, it redirects everything, the ecp, ews, oab, rpc to the owa redirect, and I don't want that.

You need to follow the last step in the article to remove the redirect from those virtual directories.
