Outlook Web Access Address (url)

Having some difficulty connecting to the URL for OWA. Wondering if anyone can confirm where I can find the URL on the server in management. I have found what I believe to be the URL and it does not work.

usually servname.whatevs/owa

What exchange / windows ver?

Typically, you'd go into IIS and search for (what I think is) a virtual folder called OWA

Server 2003 and exchange server 6.5.7638.1
I looked there (IIS) and got what I believe is the correct URL, must be a resolution issue then, but wanted to see if there was another location to find and confirm.
Chris HInfrastructure ManagerCommented:
IPADDRESS/owa should work also.

Do you get any internet response from the exchange server?
Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

We are using the server and getting mail and sending but any attempt to access owa..negative. Tried the ipaddress/owa, and nothing. It has worked previously but no one really used it. We have a use for it now and can't connect.
What kind of response are you referring to, Sharepoint etc?
Chris HInfrastructure ManagerCommented:
Response being an http request.

Have you tried putting https://IPADDRESS/owa

maybe you set it implicit to SSL only
oseusaAuthor Commented:
Yes tried Https://ipaddress/owa errors out
oseusaAuthor Commented:
which http (request) command in particular?
Chris HInfrastructure ManagerCommented:
Hmmm... check this out:


I'd go from a "troubleshooting iis" standpoint from here.  Be careful though, Exchange is built on IIS and any changes could knock out your mail.  I'd recommend beginning the troubleshooting process after hours.

Sorry just re-read the thread
Sever2003 may well be /exchange not /OWA

^He's right.....  (slaps head)  I don't know why I thought 6.5 was 2007.  I should have consulted the almighty google.
