How to Create Virtual Directories

 

Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-24

Use this procedure to create virtual directories.

  1. In Exchange System Manager, right-click the HTTP virtual server, click New, and then click Virtual Directory.

  2. Name the virtual directory.

    noteNote:
    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 (&)

  3. 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.
