Determining the Exchange Web Services (EWS) URL

The default URL for EWS is usually in the format, however that may not work for every Exchange Server.

There are 2 methods to use to find the URL:

1. Use a PowerShell command on the Microsoft Exchange Server

  • Open the Exchange Management Shell on the Exchange server
  • Type Get-WebServicesVirtualDirectory |Select name, *url* | fl
  • The URL will be displayed

2. Use Microsoft Outlook (2007 and later) that connects to the same Exchange EWS Connector.

  • Hold the Ctrl key and right click on the Outlook Icon in the system tray
  • Select “Test E-mail Auto Configuration” from the menu
  • Type in an email address located on the desired Exchange server
  • Click Test
  • The URL is listed as 'Availability Service URL'

Using an EWS URL with a self-signed certificate

Note that if you are using a self-signed certificate, the URL may be different to that displayed by either of these approaches. For more details, please see the article Troubleshooting NXPowerLite for Microsoft Exchange SSL certificate problems.
