It should work.
If you want to test redirects it is always a good idea to have the
LiveHTTPHeaders plugin. That way you can see if you get a redirect,
where the redirect leads you too, and if the server you are led to
gives the correct response. It is possible that your exchange server
is the problem, not your apache.
