Exchange webmail used to not ask for domain/username to log in. All of the sudden it's requiring it. How do i set it up so users don't have to input the domain before their username?

Hmmmm, must have been an update that has upset something...


You are the third today that I have seen.

Anyway, run through the above link (particularly the information from Sembee).

Additionally, are you using SSL?  If not, why not?  The reason I ask is that if you are using SSL, you can enable Forms Based Authentication and resolve this problem for good.

I have done everything listed. It still does not work. When you put username and password it pops back up and says mail.domain.com\user. If you change that to domain\user it works correctly. Do any services or applications need to be restarted after these changes? I've restarted www publishing service and it still doesn't work.

I found this while browsing forums. My server is a frontend and removing the check from Integrated Authentication fixed this issue.

Couldn't find the Q article...but wanted to post this instead.
Open IIS Manager
Expand Default Web Site
Right-Click on Exchange and select Properties
Select the Directory Security tab.
  Both Basic and Integrated authentication should be checked (unless the server is a Front-end.  In that case only Basic is checked)
Click on Authentication....  Edit button
Default Domain... Select Button
Select your Domain
Select OK, OK, and OK.
This should allow your users to just type in their username.
