    Exchange 2007 accessing other mailboxes

    When attempting this I get the following:

    404 - File or directory not found.
    The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.


    this is because its trying to go to https://mail.my.sch.uk/owa/otherbox@my.sch.uk

    however it should be going to https://mail.my.sch.uk/otherbox@my.sch.uk as I've got owa pointing there instead and if you go to the second url it works fine so how do I (if possible) change the default url for this?




    Thanks

    1. Not sure what you mean. Is OWA published as https://mail.my.sch.uk/otherbox@my.sch.uk ? I.e if you type this in IE, you get prsented with OWA?
    2. OWA/ is the default virtual directory, why are you trying to change this?
    3. Run Get-OwaVirtualDirectory -Server yourservername and post/PM results

    The problem is with the forefront TMG forwarding everything I think as https://internalservername/owa works but https://externalservername/owa doesn't?

    @Wes

    What are you trying to achieve.

    When you're trying accessing another mailbox is this internally or externally?

    Externally. I have a couple of users that need access to seperate mailboxes so I was wondering how to achieve this with my setup as although OWA works with the direct school network name it doesn't with the TMG forwarded name?

    wes.

    1. If you access OWA EXTERNALLY as a normal user does this work?
    2. If you try
    3. What did you publish as your public name on TMG?
    4. Where did you change the https://mai.mu.sch.uk ? Was this changed as you say to omit the /OWA?
    5. What did you specify as your internal site name when configuring TMG?

    5). mail.sch.uk (Internal DNS supplies an internal IP for that domain name)
