hello,

i'm testing exchange 2007 in a test environment, i installed exchange 2003 and exchange 2007 in one domain and one exchange organization.
when i use some clients with a exchange 2003 mailbox to see there OWA mail the are redirected to exchange 2007 and they can't logon.
i have to use the following address /exchange/username">http://<servername>/exchange/username to see the exchange 2003 owa environment.

i can't ask this from my clients to use thise when they whant to connect to owa during migration fase.
is there a solution for this problem?

regards sjoerd

I have the same problem with how this works- If you're accessing an Exchange 2003 mailbox through a Exchange 2007 CAS server you have to use /exchange; if you use /owa you get (at least in Beta 2) and error that their is no CAS server in the mailbox's site.

The only solution I know of is to have all of you redirects point to /exchange until all mailboxes have been migrated as /exchange will automatically redirect to /owa on a CAS server if you're logging in with an Exchange 2007 based mailbox.

I posted about this issue in the Exchange 2007 beta newsgroups and even entered a bug for it but never heard anything back.

(This tends to be an issue because the users only know to use https://owa.company.com.  The redirect to /exchange has always been transparent to them- and you can't reasonable expect to tell 10,000 users to start using different URLs based on whether they think they've been migrated yet.)
