    if i sit here and type in https://internal2010name.domain.internal/exchange it shunts me through to OWA2003 login screen without asking who i am
    How does it know, without first asking, where my mailbox is?

    you have to setup which server has the OWA role. If Exchange things the 2003 box does it will redirect to there.

    It will query AD and see where y our mbx is located and proxy your connection to the appropiate Exch server

    but if it hasn't asked for credentials yet how does it know where my mailbox lives?

    It's in AD.

    Just to understand what you have done.

    1. Accessed the 2010 OWA Namespace with a user whose mbx is on 2003 and you login automatically or get prompted for authentication, i.e login page?

    yes it may be but it doens't present me with a OWA2010 login page at all, just shunts stright to the OWA2003 login page
    Is it taking my username from my domain/windows session?

    Yes
    https://new2010server.domain.internal/owa
    all mailboxes bar one test account (not mine) still reside on 2003

    I assume you are testing within the LAN and not extertnal, if that is the case the it will use windows credentials, that's normal. It only uses basic from external.

    So I assume it logs you in straight away in OWA 2003?

    yeah i'm internal, it presents me with a OWA2003 login page (actually i guess it might be a ISA2006 page) which i then put in my credentials and get through to OWA2003

    If there's ISA in the play here then yes, that would depend how it's been setup internally.

    currently any internal or external web requests to https://webmail.externaldomainname/exchange are forwarded to our OWA2003 box

    i think i need to undo the redirect from 2010 to 2003 for now to make sure OWA 2010 will function, at the moment i'm not even seeing it.
    I just can't figure out how to do that yet.....

    ok i had the OWA2010 external URL set to webmail.externaldomainname and it must have been going straight to 2003 regardless of the /owa host header.

    anyway, that's now changed and i'm able to log in to the test mailbox i moved to EXC2010 using OWA2010

    Only internally though right, as you haven't exposed the 2010 namespace externally or moved it and used a legacyURL.
