I this Article you will learn step by step how to redirect owa to https exchange 2016.

Step by Step How to redirect owa from http to https in exchange 2016:-

 First Step:

    1. Open IIS Manager on the Exchange server. An easy way to do this in Windows Server 2012 or later is to press Windows key + Q, type inetmgr, and select Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager in the results.
    2. Expand the server, and expand Sites.
    3. Select Default Web Site. and verify Features View is selected at the bottom of the page.
    4. In the IIS section, double-click SSL Settings.

    5. On the SSL Settings page, clear the Require SSL check box, and in the Actions pane, click Apply.

You will use the following procedure to restore the setting on the other virtual directories where Require SSL was enabled by default:
    1. In IIS Manager, expand the server, expand Sites, and expand Default Web Site.
    2. Select the virtual directory, and verify Features View is selected at the bottom of the page.

    4. On the SSL Settings page, select the Require SSL check box, and in the Actions pane, click Apply.





    5- Repeat the previous steps on each virtual directory in the default website that had Require SSL enabled by default (except for /owa). The only virtual directories that don't have Require SSL enabled by default are /IES, /PowerShell, and /Rpc also.

    Third Step:- 

    You will now write the link of the owa inside HTTP Redirect Field.

      1. In IIS Manager, expand the server, and expand Sites.

       7. In the Status code list, verify Found (302) is selected.
       8. When you are finsihed those steps  please click on apply int the Actions.


      Fourth Step:-

      We enabled the redirection on the IIS in the last step, So all the setup will be inherited by all the vritual directories inside IIS.
      currently we will work to remove redirection from all the virtual directory under the main Defualt Web Site Directiory.

      We will use the follwing step to remove redirect setting:-

        1. In IIS Manager, expand the server, expand Sites, and expand Default Web Site.

      6. Clear the Redirect requests to this destination check box.
      7. In the Actions pane, click Apply.
      8. Repeat the previous steps on each virtual directory in the default website.

      Fifth Step:-

      We need now to restart IIS Manager from the left side panel by selecting the server and after that from th Actions click on Restart.

      The default Require SSL and HTTP Redirect settings for the default website and all virtual directories in the default website on an Exchange 2016 server are described in the following table.
