Outlook Web with mobile devices and custom forms

In http://fixmyitsystem.blogspot.com/2010/11/customise-tmg-exchange-forms.html I cover how to change the exchange login form.  Something to note is that when using the Exhange forms the mobile templates are not available unless you explicitly put them on each TMG server.

Using the default paths you need to copy the cHTML and xHTML folders from

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway\Templates\CookieAuthTemplates\ISA
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway\Templates\CookieAuthTemplates\Exchange

Now you will have forms that will allow web enabled mobile devices to authenticate.

The default look of the farms is really bland.  Basically no text and and a back and white Microsoft logo at the top.  This does really not inspire any confidence for a user that they have reached the site they are looking for.

Same as with the HTML form you can specify different string values to populate existing fields in the various pages.  But here you are going to have to check on on the pages to see what string values are used.

To change the graphic at the top of the form you need to edit the mslogo.gif file.  Once you are done copy the change files to all the array nodes and restart.

Here is my before and after graphic.  Just to show what a difference it can make.

I know, I know again with that pesky fruit logo.
