Exchange 2019: Presenting Outlook Anywhere With WAP

KB ID 0001548 Problem Note: Applies to Exchange 2019, 2016, and 2013. This is pretty much PART TWO, of presenting ‘Exchange Web Services’ using Web Application Proxy. Back in PART ONE we looked at publishing OWA and ECP, and that required having an ADFS server.
