Hi

I've just installed a new domain and added exchange, and cant get to the web access of the server.
I have checked permissions in IIS and all looks ok.
The users have access to their mailbox
The SMTP domain is correct
What happens is the when i type http://server/exchange a username box comes up. Ive tried using domain\username and just username to log in and the box comes back 3 times before HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized appears

Anything else to try?
Thanks

What permissions do you have on the EXCHWEB VDir in IIS?

You might want to walk through this troubleshooting guide...

Hi

I did find that guide, which i thought was useful, but it didnt correct my problem.
My permissions on the exchweb are anonymous only  

Thanks

OWA should work straight out of the box.
Is the account you are using mail enabled?
On the Exchange server itself, if you go to http://localhost/exchange does it work then?

If it is a new installation then I would be looking to write the installation off.
Remove Exchange using add/remove programs and then wipe the machine.
Exchange should work straight out of the box - the fact that OWA doesn't work could be a sign of a bad build - and you don't know what else is wrong that you cannot see.
Considering that Exchange takes less than an hour to install, it certainly something I would be doing - I have reinstalled Exchange four or five times in the past before I was happy with it. A properly build Exchange server should last for years - trying to save an hour or two now could come back to haunt you once the server is in production.
