Hey all,
I have one exchange server hosting multiple domains and would like to have these multiple domain users access owa. When I type the domainname/exchange it prompts for a username and password.  I definitely type domain\username then password.  Can anyone tell me if there is anything else I may be missing.

yes i use the two field method for xp but after entering the credentials it returns the prompt :0(
I think I have the domains setup properly and also setup recipient policies for each individual domain any other ideas

okay my last best shot

·      Symptoms
·      401 Access Denied
·      401 Logon Failed
·      Possible Causes and Resolutions
·      The user name or password is incorrect. Verify that no typographical errors exist and that CAPS LOCK is not pressed.
·      The user name is entered in an incorrect format. For example, if the server is not configured to log on using a UPN, you receive this error if you attempt to log on to Outlook Web Access with an e-mail address.
·      You recently created the user’s account. It takes a few minutes for the account to be properly initialized. To speed up the process, try sending the account a piece of mail or try logging on with an Outlook profile that is serviced by an Exchange server.
·      If you receive a 401 Access Denied error when you go to http://<server>/exchange and a 404 Not Found error when you go to http://<server>/exchange/<user name>, the user you are attempting to authenticate as probably does not have a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) address that matches the SMTP domain set on the properties of the virtual directory in Exchange System Manager. For more information, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article Q293386, “XWEB: Error Message: HTTP/1.0 401 or 404,” at
·      You may have incorrect NTFS permissions on Davex.dll (or Exprox.dll if this is a front-end server). To be safe, ensure that authenticated users have minimum permissions of read and execute on the %SystemRoot%\system32 and Exchsrv\Bin directories.
