How to login to OWA without using domain\username
Posted on 2006-04-05
I am trying to log in to OWA using a username only, i.e. without having to type domain\username.
Let me give you some background
Running Windows server 2003. Exchange server 2003 Enterprise SP2 (single server). We also have two logical domains, internaldomain.local, and externaldomain.com.
The exchange server is a DC for externaldomain.com. All our users are located in internaldomain.local. There is a 2-way trust between the domains.
We have 3 different methods of access from the internet to exchange :
Laptops use RPC over HTTPS
PDA's use Direct push
THE PROBLEM :
To use direct push for the PDA's, we need to have forms based authentication turned off - This works ok.
However, when using webmail, users are connectinc to externaldomain.com, which tries to authenticate them. All our users are in internaldomain.local. So they have to type in internaldomain.local\username .
Is there a way of automatically authenticating to the internal domain without having to type in the domain name in the login box?
I have already tried setting the internal domain as the default domain and realm on the directory security tab on the /exchange folder.
I have also added the internal domain controllers on the "directory access" tab on the properties of the exchange server.
Any ideas how i can get round this?
