Exchange 2003
Windows Server 2003

I have a domain account with the logon of test.
There is an exchange mailbox for domain user test using an alias of testemail.
How do I enable using the exchange alias to logon through OWA (use the alias of testemail, not domain account test).  I currently have to use the user's domain logon (not their exchange alias) to log on in OWA.  

By the way, you kick a**.

Thanks.

Here is a nice tutorial for you ... http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/OWA2003Forms-based-Authentication-default-domain.html, if you want to use the username instead of domain\username or username@domain.com  .. I don't believe you can use the mailbox alias for login since the login is based on the AD account not the mailbox ...

I agree with BNettles73
I don't think you can use alias as log in, but you can specify the default domain in IIS so only the username and password is required

Sorry i meant to have bnettles73 as the accepted answer.  I ended up spliting the points between both of you.  I figured that there wasn't to do it but I wanted to check.  Thanks.
