How to Create Virtual Directories
Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-24
Use this procedure to create virtual directories.
In Exchange System Manager, right-click the HTTP virtual server, click New, and then click Virtual Directory.
Name the virtual directory.
Note: The name you use is important, because this is what the client must enter in their browser (for example, http://mail.microsoft.com/virtualdirectoryname). Do not use the following character sequences in the directory name because IIS blocks them:
- Period (.)
- Double period (..)
- Period and forward slash (./)
- Backslash (\)
- Percent sign (%)
- Ampersand (&)
Right-click the virtual directory just created, and then click Properties. Specify whether the directory is for access to a mailbox or a public store. If the directory is for access to a mailbox store, the SMTP domain must be specified. If the virtual directory is for access to a public folder store, select the appropriate public folder to act as the root public folder for this virtual directory.
