ACL Problems after OWA Redirect

I followed the directions from KB 555053 (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;555053) exactly but have ran into an interesting AACL issue. I can not verify this, but our Exchange server (before it was an Exchange Server) had another computer name before it was joined to the domain, renamed, and made the Exchange server. Now I see that the IUSR_*** account is for the machine's previous name and not the current name. The ACL on the default web site is to allow Anonymous Accesss via the IUSR_**OldMachineName** account. I do not see a IUSR account for the new machine name. What do I need to do here? After following the instructions in  the article (which I have succesfully followed on other 2003 ExServers)- it will not redirect to HTTPS- nor will it redirect to /exchange by browsing to the default website. I get the follwoing error when I browse using either method (http to https or *.*.com to *.*.com/exchange) :

" You are not authorized to view this page
You do not have permission to view this directory or page due to the access control list (ACL) that is configured for this resource on the Web server.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please try the following:

Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.
Click the Refresh button to try again with different credentials.
HTTP Error 401.3 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to an ACL set on the requested resource.

Your last option would be to reset the OWA, but wait for some more suggestions from the experts.

If OWA worked okay before (i.e. without the redirect), then the permissions on your newly created owahttps.asp file are probably too restrictive.  Try setting the permissions in Explorer so that All Users have Read and Execute rights on it.
