    I'm completely stuck. I have never set up Outlook Web Access (OWA) on an Exchange server before, and now the boss is asking me to do it. Apparently a consultant who began setting up our network started the process of configuring OWA, but I'm unsure exactly where he left off. I was hoping there was someone out there who has done this before that could kind of walk me through it. We are running a Windows 2000 server with Exchange 5.5. The OWA component of Exchange is installed, but obviously not configured properly.

    Ok...here's a dumb question...do I need to publish the OWA web files to a web server? Where do I find these files?

    You have to have IIS set up on one of yuor servers to use OWA and it has to have the correct permissions to access the Exchange server mailboxes. I would advise against setting it up on the same server that Exchange is set up on but if you have to you have to. All of the OWA files are on the Exchange Server setup CD so once you have your IIS set up run the component setup for OWA on the server running IIS.
    I would also reccomend getting an outside DNS A-record set up (exchange.yourdomain.org) and install an SSL certificate on your web (IIS Server)

    Thanks for the advice. This has already been taken care of previously.

    At any rate, I've thought about this a little further and decided to hold off on it for a little bit. We just decided to purchase a new server for exchange. We're going to upgrade to Exchange 2004 in a couple weeks, so it would probably be best to wait until we do that. Sorry about this confusion.

    Thanks again, Wayne
