  I am assuming this is a typo: 

  "I type https:\\mailserver\\exchange" 
  And you really mean:

  Hi Al 
  Here goes. I point to the MX record and append Exchange on the end. Thus I 
type https:\\mailserver\\exchange. I did do a basic test with 
HTTP against the box when it was freshly built and thinking about it did not 
get the form then either. Just straight to a basic prompt. Also now I come to 
think of it our live mail server has the same issue when you point to http. I 
have not changed the live server at all of course. Thus it is not a CA etc etc 
and thus I do not use OWA on it externally currently and judging by yet another 
IIS nightmare I find myself in I may well steer clear quite honestly. Anyway, I 
just very briefly opened up the live firewall up for HTTP to the live Exchange 
box and tested for OWA connectivity and not being aware of that page did not 
think anything of it not being there as I had never seen it before. Today I saw 
someone elses box remotely and discovered something was wrong as they do get 
the page.

  That ASP page is located at Default Web Site, ExchWeb, Bin, Auth,owalogon.asp 
in IIS which is at https:\\externalservername\exchweb/bin/auth/owalogon.asp 
<> . thats the 
good news. However, thats the good news. The bad news is that if you try to 
logn from there it just errors instantly. Going to HTTPS:\\SERVERNAME\exchnage 
does work still but without the page ever being displayed.

  Sorry but I am just totally baffled. I just wish it did not reflect every 
other experience I have ever had with IIS. 
  Many thanks for your help in advance. 
  Paul Lemonidis.
