Hi I've set up Outlook Web Access and when ever I connect to the exchange server using its IP address to use OWA it keeps prompting me for a username and password even though I've entered it correctly the first time. How can I stop this from happening its really frustrating when you type your password in so many times. Is their a way to stop this.

·If you receive a 401 Access Denied error when you go to http://<server>/exchange or a 404 Not Found error when you go to http://<server>/exchange/<user name>, the user you are attempting to authenticate as does not have an SMTP address that matches the SMTP domain set on the corresponding SMTP virtual directory in Exchange System Manager. For more information, see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles:

·Q293386, “XWEB: Error Message: HTTP/1.0 401 or 404,” at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=3052&ID=293386.

·Q257891, “XWEB: ‘The Page Could Not be Found’ Error Message When You Use OWA,” at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=3052&ID=257891.

maykut,

IIS -> Exchange -> Directory Security -> Authentication and Access Control -> Uncheck "integrated windows authentication" and check "basic authentication". This is just a workaround, not very secure though. You'd better apply SSL.

As to your "HTTP 404 file not found" problem, have you tried: http://<ipaddress>/exchange/<username> ?
