Hardware summary: 1 Win2k Domain controller and 1 machine runing exchange 2000 server.

Here is the problem:  I built the exchange server with all the current patches and service packs.  and when I use my ID to test everything works great...even OWA.  So then I try to make some user accounts and test them.  They dont work at all. weird I copy my account to see if that works and for some reason the user I made from a copy of my account works...can even access owa...

So to test I start removing them from group memberships...long story short when users are members of schema admins then can access thier mail...both on OWA and through outlook. When they are not...bam doesnt work...

Can anyone help me figure out how the heck to correct this?

I had this problem on Exchange 5.5 and NT 4, and I fixed it by giving the user INTERACTIVE (one of the built-in domain users) the "Log on locally" right on the server. Don't know if that'll fix your problem, but it might be worth a try.

Have no idea if you can install Exchange without, but: did you install the schema extensions before?

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:
