Hello, everyone.  this is my first post here and I am new to webhosting, Exchange, etc and struggling with some basic tweeks.

I have my exchange server up and running and I can type www.mydomain.com/exchange and it takes me to my OWA page.  The problem is that I don't want to type /exchange, I want to type in www.exchange.mydomain.com and have that address take my users to the OWA page.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Thank you.

hi,
if you want to do it internally...
then create a alias name for the exchange server in the dns and in iis default web site go to home directory and "a redirection to a url" and type http://webmail.domain.com/exchange and select "a dir below url entered and "a permanent redirection"
flush and register the ip and restart netlogon service

Wow, that was so far over my head, I don't even know where to begin with asking questions about it.  Create an alias where?  Forward lookup or  reverse lookup?

My main reason for doing this is so I can enable Outlook Anywhere and connect to Exchange over HTTP.  And to do that my SSL cert needs to be issued to the same address.

Create a alias name in the forward lookup zone and associate it with exchange 2003 ip address.

Sorry for being to stupid.  And thank you for trying to be helpful.  This is what I am trying to accomplish:

I want to type in exchange.mydomain.com and have my OWA page open with the address still at exchange.mydomain.com. Then I want to log into OWA and STILL have my address at exchange.mydomain.com/. . . Once I do this, I can create an SSL cert with "www.exchange.mydomain.com" and then I shouldn't have any more cert issues AND be able to use RPC over HTTP, right?

ismail, thank you for all the help.  You are right, it should work and it does now.  Too hard to explain what I had screwed up here but it all working PERFECT now, I even got my RDP over https working and it's WAY COOL!!!!  I am stoked.
 
Thanks again.
