Following a Microsoft book's recommendation (Windows SBS 2003 R2 Administrator's Companion) I disabled  Anonymous Access for the companyweb site and now, users can't access OWA (440 Login Timeout).  I tried re-enabling the Anonymous access but that has NOT fixed the issue, all other services seem to be working fine, Outlook clients connect fine remotely, the Intranet works fine, remote connections works fine, it's the OWA the one that doesn't work.

Anybody knows how to fix this?  I've tried some solutions I've found on the web with no luck.

Now I have a bunch of angry remotes not being able to access their mail and it's becoming a very seiours issue after only an hour and a half!

I tried this http://msmvps.com/blogs/cgross/archive/2004/08/08/11472.aspx also and nothing.

Now I don't get the 400 error but get

You could not be logged on to Outlook Web Access. Make sure your domain\user name and password are correct, and then try again.

Eventhough I know and I'm positive that the user name/password are correct.

Ok, it's working now, I had to enable Basic Authentication for the website.  My concern is what security threat does that pose now to the server.

Thanks all!

Glad you got it figured out... and to answer your ultimate question...  it's important that you don't focus on just one or two items when considering what security threats there are to your SBS.  Instead, look at it comprehensively so that you can reasonably decide what the best approach is for your particular situation.
