When I try to connect to my Exchange server via http://myservername.mydomainname.co.uk/exchange, I get the log on. Sometimes when I log on it goes through. Sometimes it rejects my password, sometimes it will half load and ask for my password again and then rejects it. Sometimes it will load completely, but when I click on contacts it will ask for my password again, and reject.
Do i have to enable users for remote access?
What am I doing wrong?

Running Server2003, Exchange2003, and trying to access via XP Pro and IE 6.0.

I amtrying to connect from behind a corporate firewall, could this affect it?

Any help please

If you're coming at it through a firewall, make sure port 443 as well as port 80 is open to you. But if it were not, I would expect you to get a consistent failure to log in, not this random result you report.
