Something I have been wanting to figure out forever is how to host multiple domains - smtp, web, outlook anywhere, owa, etc...on a single box running Windows 2008 and Exchange 2010. Tonight I figured out how to add users and change the logon domain name
from the primary to whatever alias I wanted. That rocked. I added a second website for one of my domains and created owa vitual directories for the new site, create a self-signed cert and got it up and running. That rocked. What sucks is I have a mysterious
problem I simply cannot figure out: I have web site A and web site B both running owa. Website A also is running several others things like ActiveSync, Outlook Anywhere, blah, blah. After hours of playing with it the following is true: if I type
http://mobile.websiteA.com it redirects to
httpS://mobile.websiteA.com. If I type
http://mobile.websiteB.com it redirects to
httpS://mobile.websiteB.com. All that is great! Now, when I type
httpS://mobile.websiteA.com it redirects to
httpS://mobile.websiteB.com instead of A. If I type
httpS://mobile.websiteB.com it remains correct. ONLY typing
httpS://mobile.websiteA.com redirects to the wrong owa. It works, you can login, but it is wrong in the address bar. WHAT in the name of Pete is wrong? I have done everything I can think of including breaking IIS and
OWA multiple times, but luckily getting it back online. IF I STOP websiteB everything is correct, you can type
httpS://mobile.websiteA.com directly and it remains correct. Only after reenabling websiteB does the
httpS://mobile.websiteA.com redirect to the other site address. I hope this makes sense...

Have you configured SSL host headers?
