I'm sure everyones knows the problem I'm having...
I have tried every solution that i could possibly find.
egghead's solutions, msexchange.org, increasing Timeout settings, etc...
I'm running SBS2003 seems to me causes more problems than needed...but, for absolutely no reason what so ever it will start doing the 440 login timeout, then it will stop and people will be able to get in again.  If someone needs to get immediatly they usually call me, and I turn off forms in the HTTP exchange server protocol, apply it, go back in reenable forms, reset iis and all is good... its quite annoying.  Is there any other method to this madness?

Thanks in advance

I just went through this agony, and got a solution direct from Microsoft.

Microsoft's first suggestions were all around permisions and authentication, and we went through all the possibilities in that arena with no success.  Extremely frustrrating.

In our case, it turned out that the IUSR_Servername password was corrupted.  I reset the password in ADUC, then in the properties for default website (and daughter folders, including exchweb).  Then IISRESET.  That did it!

I have no idea how the IUSR_Servername password got hammered.  This occurred after we had replaced a dying SBS2003 server through a convoluted process described elswhere on this site (see "Replace a dying SBS2003 Server").

Ciao!

Hi,

I read all the solutions but NONE helped, what did solve the "440 Login Timeout" problem
was adding the iusr_servername & iwam_servername to the users group.
Might be a security problem but nothing else helped !
