    I have a question about this...I made this change (did change some of the child objects too) and now when I logout the user is redirected to the logout screen for OWA. This also contains the same URL name or beginning of it that gets redirected to /exchange, so now it asks for the username and password again. This never happened until I added the redirect, is there a way to stop this? (I think it was my mistake somewhere with the child object changes)

    sscal - this is an old question. Unlike a forum it is not possible to "bump" questions back up the list. The only people who will see your post are those that have already participated. Instead you should post your question as a new question in the Exchange Server Zone which will allow other experts the chance to see the question and respond.
