Not sure what I did in IIS to cause this, but when I log into Exchange via the web, I get a directory listing with all the users mailboxes listed...

How do I fix this?

If Exchange 2003, then reset the virtual directories.

Otherwise it does help if you post which version of Exchange you are using... it could be one of four, all of which have their own quirks.

Check whether scripts & executables access are set in exchange virtual folders.

They are set to scripts & executables. This is in all the virtual folders the have something to do with Exchange (ExchWeb, Exadmin, etc).

I am getting a message when I try to log in that Directory listing is disabled.

Directory Listing Denied
This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed.

Is this supposed to be on by default? I turned it off to try and solve the problem. If I turn it back on, it lists the directory contents again.

Is this Exchange 2003? You still haven't confirmed the version.
Have you tried to reset the virtual folders as per the article I provided the link to above?

Sorry Sembee,

I totally missed your first post. I keep thinking the yellow text at the top is part of the header for the site and just skip the message under that one thinking it is my first post...

That fixed the issue. Thanks.
