    Direct URL for Outlook Web Access Lite (Exchange 2007)

    We're just completing an install of Exchange 2007 for a local school, and I'm wondering if there's a direct link for Outlook Web Access Lite? The school's going to be catering for a fairly large range of abilities and ages, and would like to use the simpler interface of the Lite version for some of the students.

    Obviously it can be selected at logon, but is there any way of forcing it?

    use a different browser ie firefox that would force it to use light failing that have a look at the aspx file called C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\owa\auth\logon.aspx it might be editable

    Found this command to be run in the powershell.

    To set it for a particular user, you could call:
    Code:
    Set-CasMailbox –id:<id of mailbox> -OWAPremiumClientEnabled:$false
    It is worth noting that even if this bit is set, the user will still see both the "Premium" and "Light" logon options. However, they will always get the Light experience, regardless of which option was chosen. The reason for this is because per-user segmentation over-rides the per-vdir segmentation, and when we render the logon page we don't know who the user is yet.

    Taken from You Had Me at EHLO

    I'm sure you could mod the command to apply to all mailboxes.

    Also this may Help - Set-CASMailbox

    Found this after a bit more digging.

    Force everyone into OWA 2007 Light

    You can restrict OWA to offering only OWA Light for a specific Virtual Directory or for a specific user.

    To set the restriction on the Virtual Directory for all users, you need to enter the following PowerShell:
    Code:
    Set-owavirtualdirectory –id:<virtual directory ID> -PremiumClientEnabled:$false

    Does anyone know if this can be done per database or group? I want to restrict all Pupils to use OWA lite but not Staff. Staff and Pupils are on seperate databases.

    Thanks
