adding user to active directory to be able to check email through exchange web email

I have always added users through active directory and created mailboxes for them in exchange 2000 server.

i have just added this new user the same way as usual and with that username and password he is not able to check his email through the internet.    some users use the internet option that exchange offers and some users use outlook.   i wonder why this user is only allowed to connect through outlook with POP3 but not with the web option  that exchange 2000 offers.  

is there any setting that i need to set up to allow this new user to check his email though the web?

thanks

i am using sbs 2000.    do u think that there is a restriction on how many users are allowed to login to the server ?

most of the users that i have are only created to have their email hosted in my server.

yes with sbs I believe there will be restrictions on the number of users, you should check your licenses, also an event will be logged if you try to exceed your licenses, check the event viewer
