Exchange 2003 Outlook Web Access

I have recently taken over an Exchange server from another person.
Everything is ok apart from the Outlook web access, It just doesnt seem to work.

I have tried to re-set the folders in IIS using the instructions in this article but it just doesnt seem to work

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=883380

When I try to access the server across LAN using a browser and web address http://192.168.1.203/Exchange I just get a DNS error
Apparently this used to work?

I am wondering if there is anything else I can do to get this back up and running without doing anything to severe???

Hi,

1: If you've ever installed MS Sharepoint this effectively b*gg*rs up OWA, check it's not installed.
2: Try using the address in the format: http://'server_name'/exchange/'mailbox_you_want_access_to' (without quotes) rather than using the IP address. I have had some success with this. Mac clients seemingly don't resolve the name to IP address easily, so you mileage may vary.
3: I assume .ASP, DNS & AD are all installed correctly.

Hope this helps.

Hi

I cant find sharepoint as a package itself but find service accounts for something similar in active directory.

OWS_1968836298_admin - Security Group - Microsoft Sharepoint role 'Admin' for web 'http://cryserver01'

I tried using the http://'server_name'/exchange/'mailbox_you_want_access_to' but this didnt work either

DNS, .ASP & AD are working fine???

Really odd!!

Hi,

Yep, very odd indeed!

The above is a link to the uninstall info on Sharepoint, check Add/Remove --> Windows Components, just in case...

Cheers
