owa http

I am running windows 2000 sbs (Fully patched) I disabled http access to mail for all users through the protocol settings in active directory for those users. I know want to turn it on for certain users even though its checked and exchange has been reset it is not allowing the user in, I get prompted for a username and password and as soon as I enter it I get http 500 internal server error the page cannot be displayed!

I haven't changed anything else and have restarted iis admin service

I read this, although I am not sure if it helps:

In IE, turn off Friendly HTTP error messages by choosing tools - internet options - advanced. Then you should get the real error message and line number of the error.

Hi, yes that gave me another error message but I was able to relate the error to another problem that I previously had with users mailbox that I thought would be unrelated.
