Why is it...when I sign into my OWA server I am prompted for two login's...I recently placed a SSL certificate on the site and just wonder if that is the problem...

Any ideas?

Before we go any further, lets try the stock answer for OWA queries first:

Check the authentication on the IIS manager for the Exchange virtual directories:

All should be basic and integrated ONLY.
In addition, /exchweb should also have anonymous access. No others should have anonymous.

Which version of OWA/Exchange?  What types of authentication do you have set up?  If you are using SSL, then you should be using Basic (not Integrated).  Check what types are being used on the Exchange virtual directory in IIS Manager.  Check also that the same permissions (and SSL settings) are applied to both the Exchange and Public virtual folders.  In Exchange 2000, the Public folder tree was displayed within the contents of the mailbox view, so that could be what is going on, but not sure.
