Here is the deal. I have a windows 2000 domain. Currently users connect to a generic webmail system using a link on there desktops. https:\\mail.domain.com
and it takes them to the web interface of the current e-mail system. I have configured OWA to be the main source for users to collect there mail per my managers request. I have enabled forms based authentication and installed a ssl certificate. I have changed the DNS at our ISP and internally to point to the new exchange server, which is running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise as a member or a Windows 2000 domain. The issue is that it only works from links, or favorites, if i type it into the internet explorer bar it prompts me for a user name and password (windows prompt). What is even more strange, when I type in the correct info, it doesn't work, even though it works with OWA when I get there from another route.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I need to get this resolved by morning. I know my mail is coming in because I just got a new message into exchange. I think I may of set something wrong up in IIS default website but I am not sure. I currently have it set to a redirect to https://exchange/exchange
(exchange is my servers name) A directory below URL entered.
Thanks in advance!
