HTTP OWA Site Not Redirecting To HTTPS

Last Modified: 2015-03-18
We have Exchange 2010 running on Windows Server 2012 Datacenter. Our OWA site "owa.domain.com" has a redirect so when people type it in, it redirects to "https://owa.domain.com/owa".

The redirect works when people type in "https://" but does NOT work if they only type "http://".

When entering just "http://" they get a 403 forbidden error.

We obviously want http to redirect to the "https://owa.domain.com/owa" address.
There already is a redirect in the HTTP Redirect of IIS for this.
