    Steve:

    There was a lengthy thread mid-may on "protecting an exchange server" that
    gave a lot of options on how to best protect an exchange server, in this
    case your OWA box. You can check the archives and see if it's there.

    Subject: Outlook Web Access

    We are still running Exchange 5.5 and until we start our Exchange 2003
    migration we want to improve the way we are running Outlook Web Access (OWA)
    in terms of security. We use SSL. We prohibit traffic to the box other
    than port 80 and 443. Other than the obvious recommendations of using the
    recommended OWA install and hardening the OS where OWA is running does the
    list have any other recommendations on protecting the OWA box? For
    instance, can OWA be configured to run on Linux/Apache instead of Windows
    2000/IIS5?

    Thanks
