Enabling/Diabling OWA using group policy or analogous function.

I know the EXCHANGE FEATURES tab allows me to enable/disable OWA for the individual user. Is there a way to manage this by group policy? So that anyone in 'group A' for example would have access and anyone not in 'group A' would not have access? If not, then has anyone written a script that will essentially perform this maintenance task? Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello,

If memory serves me correct, Group Policy does not contain settings for OWA because OWA is a feature of Exchange server and not the server OS which is what GP really applies to. But back to your question, I have not tested this, but if you were to create a new mailbox store and assign the users that you want to exclude from OWA to the store, you should be able to restrict OWA access either through IIS Default Website properties or in the Exchange properties for that store. I’d have to investigate further to find out but I think this should at least put you on the right track to research.

Let me know what you find out!

Good luck!
