    Since you posted this in the Server 2003 section, I'm assuming that you are attempting to do this on a Server 2003 machine.  The default settings for IE on a Server 2003 machine are set at the "Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration".  This basically locks out just about everything because you don't really want to be using your server as a workstation and browsing the Internet is generally not a "best practice".

    I think this makes server management difficult so I disable this feature... however, I would NEVER browse webmail from a server.  If you really need to get to your mail while working at the server use Remote Desktop and remote back into your desktop machine.

    For more info about this open the Help & Support Center on your server and search for "Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration".
