Exchange 2007 and 2010:

1) Open up a Powershell command on your EX2007 or 2010 box acting as CAS-server in your organization. If you have a CAS Array then you need to run this on each CAS on the array

2) Enter the following command Set-OWAVirtualDirectory -Identity “owa (default website)” -LogonFormat username -DefaultDomain INTERNALDOMAINNAME
