I am now :)
 
If you use a single URL for the users in the US, you'll have some problems
with this.  The server is expecting to answer for
Http://myexchangeserver.mydomain.com/exchange
<http://myexchangeserver.mydomain.com/exchange>  on the BE servers.  The
expected behavior is that if you show up at this URL, you'll be redirected
to your mailbox using a URL of
http://my_real_exchangeserver.mydomain.com/exchange
<http://my_real_exchangeserver.mydomain.com/exchange>  .  A FE server is
used to abstract this type of information from the user so that you can have
a one to many URL without ever exposing your server addresses to the
internet.  You'd be better off with a FE server to accomplish this.  For
either, you can use HTTPS but the abstraction would be difficult in your
case.

ya, it is like this. For India I've FE server with the url for owa as
http://india-webmail.mydomain.com <http://india-webmail.mydomain.com>  . For
USA I don't have a FE, but my owa is configured on one of the USA servers
with the url for owa as http://usa-webmail.mydomain.com
<http://usa-webmail.mydomain.com>  . My only concern was - I don't want to
use a FE server in US . All the users on both the servers in USA should be
able to use the usa url for webmail access. Hope you are clear.

Which URL for India and which for USA?
 
In your earlier mail, I thought you said you didn't want to have a FE in USA
and didn't have a different URL for them?
 
Can you restate what you want to accomplish?

I already have a FE / BE setup running in India with one owa url. Yes, I
don't want our USA users to travell all the way from India back into USA. So
I have another url setup in one of our US offices, so all the users in USA
will be using this url to access mails thru web.
 
Thanks

Additionally, it is possible to do what you say.  However, the trick here is
to figure out how to get the users in the USA to the fastest link.  In other
words, you don't want users in USA to access the OWA URL in India just to
get to a mailbox in the USA meaning that they would have to travel the
internet to India, get on your internal network, and travel back to the USA
if left as is.
 
Is that correct?
 
 
I think your best bet would be to have two URL's for simplicity.  A FE
server is not required, but it would make security and URL abstraction a bit
easier.

Hmm.. should be possible. but it depends on you configuration. are the users
of the mailboxes in the same actice directory domain? remember to
authenticate as followed: "domainname\user" and the "password" of course :D

Hi Christian,
       Both the servers in my US office are configured for webmail access as
you said. Internally i.e., with in the LAN people are able to access . 
From Internet I've only one url setup to one server to access. I need the
people who are part of other server also should be able to access their
mailboxes thru the same url.  
Is it possible ??
 
Thanks
Gopi
