I am trying to modify a couple things on the OWA Logon page like it says you can do here:

http://www.vladville.com/articles/exchangesp2logon.asp

I have our Logo up where the the OWA Logo used to be right in the middle of the page above the un & pw fields. and its working great.

however, if i make any changes to the logon.asp all i get is a "404 login error" on the top right in a white page when i go to the owa web address. Even if i just make very small changes, like vlad says, changing "domain\username" to just "username" etc. just little changes in the text. Nothing else is edited.

when I use the edited logon.asp file, the owa page won't come up. i just get the error on the webpage.

Any Suggestions?

What program are you editing it in?  You have to make sure that you save it using the same encoding and permissions.

i'm just copying C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\exchweb\bin\auth\usa\logon.asp to my desktop, and changing the extension to .txt

then i open it, (of course it opens with notepad) where i change the words i want on the CONST's (CONST L_LoginButton_Text) etc.

then i save the file, and i change the file type back to .asp. then i rename the old logon.asp and i copy over the new logon.asp.

and it doesn't work.

But like you said the permissions.....that's what was wrong.

THANKS!!

Well, you could have cut out a lot of steps by just making a copy of the logon.asp file right there in the same directory, and then opening up logon.asp with Notepad.  You don't need to change it to a .txt file to do that.
