You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Outlook Web App virtual directories" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.
This example configures Gzip compression to
High on an Outlook Web App virtual directory that's named
owa in the default Internet Information Services (IIS) Web site on the local server.
Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -identity "owa (Default Web Site)" -GzipLevel High
This example sets Gzip compression to
Off on an Outlook Web App virtual directory that's named
owa in the default IIS Web site on the local server.
Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -identity "owa (Default Web Site)" -GzipLevel Off
You must restart IIS by using the command
iisreset/noforce for these changes to take effect.
