Exchange 2003 webmail requires fully qualified username

My old exchange server allowed users to log in  to webmail with the short version of their username, but for some reason my exchange 2003 server is requiring they type in the fully qualified username including the @ sign and the Active Directory domain name.

How would I set it to not require fully qualified usernames?  The only difference I can find between the new server and the old server that worked perfectly is that the old server was a domain controller (not a recommended configuration) and the new server is a member server but not an AD controller.

You have to set the Default domain in OWA.  (I used to type this out, but found a good tutorial):
Good tutorial...
