Problems with OWA and period in subject line

Hi

I've have problems with an Exchange 2003 Server and OWA. When using Outlook Web Access, I cannot open emails that has a period (.) last in the subject line. It seems as if Internet Explorer thinks the filename ends after the period. Let's say I get an email with the subject line "Hello World.". I get the 401 error when trying to open it. I can open emails with a period in the middle though, like "Hello.World!" The problem only occurs when the period is at the end of the subject line. I can open the email in the regular Outlook client with no problems. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

The server has SP1 installed by the way and the OS is Windows 2003 Server. OWA is published through an ISA 2000 Server.

Regards,

Tomas Andersson

The problem is ISA, not OWA.

I guess ISA is on another machine that had the IIS Lockdown tool run on it? You need to run it again to allow URLs with a period at the end - the default settings are to disallow this feature.

I graded the answer "Good" since it was not exactly the correct solution. IIS Lockdown is used on IIS 4.0 and 5.1 (WinNT 4.0/Win2k) but since we are running Windows 2003 Server and ISA 2000, it was the URL Scan, included in the feature pack for ISA, that was the problem. Under [DenyUrlSequences] in urlscan.ini, I found that .. was there. I got rid of that, restarted the filter and it works just fine :-)
