Exchange Server includes an add-on, which can be installed on a IIS3/4/5 server, either within the NT domain or trusted NT domain. This feature is called Outlook Web Access (OWA), and provides users access to their email, calendar and contacts through a Web Browser. (Note: You do need Ex5.5 SP2 or higher for the calendaring and contacts features). Clients will then get to a log on screen by using http://servername/exchange. If you want this to be accessable from the outside world, the servers IP will need to registered with DNS servers.

Make sure Outlook is registered as your default mail program in IE5.0 Tools, internet options, programs. Once that's done, IE should automatically open Outlook when you click the mail icon.

MS Exchange comes with Outlook Web Access component (OWA). You will first need to load onto the server IIS3 or 4 before you can install this component from the setup ? add/remove components.

It does most of the work for you but there will need tobe a few changes made to your firewall to allow access of this from outside. MS Knowledge base have an article on how to get this to work through MS Proxy (Q207655). If you are at a bit of a lose on how to configure your firewall, use this paper asa guide to what needs to be done.

If access is only for internal use then users need to point their browsers to http://ExchangeServername/exchange


I suggest this Whitepaper from MS for a good run down of problems and fixes

Also note that for OWA to work properly, the user must have "log on locally" privileges to the server where Exchange/OWA is being run.
