It is still possible to gain access to a mailbox via Outlook Web Access after you disable the HTTP protocol in the Exchange Administrator program. In order to completely disable this protocol, you must restart the World Wide Web Services in Control Panel/Services.

If the HTTP protocol is disabled on the server, a client mailbox may still be accessed by entering the logon address http://servername/exchange/Logon.asp into the browser. After the service has been stopped and restarted, the mailbox will no longer be accessible.


This is a design implementation of Microsoft Internet Information Server.
