Ms Outlook Web Access

By amandae ·
I have a terminal server running Windows 2003 and Office 2003.

I have an Exchange server running 5.5 with Outlook 2000.

What is the better scenario? To configure the Exchange server or terminal server for Outlook Web Access?

Many thanks for your assistance.

You will have to configure the Exchange server for OWA regardless.

I would stick with OWA. Down the raod when you go to Outlook 2003, it does not like having Outlook installed on the server.
This way your users won't get used to having Outlook in their Terminal sessions.

Since OWA is a website, there would be no advantage to putting it on the terminal server. You would not be saving any resources, and in fact you would be using resources on the terminal server to run a web site that you really don't need to have running on that server.

Hope this helps!

You can install OWA 5.5 on a separate server. In most cases, people prefer to install OWA on a server that is separated from the Exchange server for security purposes.

However, your terminal server is running Windows Server 2003, and Exchange 5.5 components are not supported on Win2K3. That means you're better off running OWA on your Exchange server.
