How do I force OWA to ask for a username/password?

Greetings,

I'm running Exchange Server 2003, SP1.  I have a group of users who will share a machine (ie use a common AD account to login).  I'd like to use OWA for their email access.

Right now, one of two things happen.

(1)  If the AD account used to login has an associated Exchange mailbox, OWA automagically brings up that mailbox
(2)  If the AD account does *not* have an associated Exchange mailbox, I get a "404 Not found" error

I need to make it so that a certain subset of users is always prompted by OWA for their username/password.

I've looked around, but haven't found a simple way to accomplish this.

Thanks
Jason

unchecking integrated windows auth will cause anyone who hits the site to be prompted for their credentials.

There is no way to make this change for a subset of users. It is either all or nothing. Exchange doesn't know who the user is until they attempt to authenticate.

Another way to get round the problem, if you are using SSL, is to enable forms based authentication.

Are you using SSL?
FBA is only available through SSL, when accessed through https URL...

so http://mail.domain.com/exchange will not give you the FBA page
https://mail.domain.com/exchange will
