OWA 2003 - Public Folders - Page Not Found

Windows 2003 Standard, Exchange 2003 Standard - Both Fresh Builds (No Migrations)

Users internal or external using OWA get a "404 - Page Cannot Be Found" error when trying to access Public Folders.
Public path in IIS is \\.\BackOfficeStorage\<domain\public.
When I try to create a new Public Folder Virtual Directory in ESM I get an error when expanding the Public Folder Tree that the Public Folders aren't available or the information store may not be mounted - however Outlook 2003 clients can access public folders.

I'm not an IIS guru by any means, so please be gentle when you respond :)

Check the exchange virtual directories in IIS and make sure that basic and integrated authentication are selected ... additionally make sure anonymous is enabled on /exchweb ... I had this exact same issue about 3 weeks ago and Sembee shared the resolution with me ... worked like a charm ...

If you suspect that something is wrong with the virtual folders then you can reset them using this KB article.
