Can you give a bit more info.

If you do not have a front-end/back-end server configuration then you will need to log in to the server hosting the particular mailbox. (And if you are replacing your only Exchange server then there are a lot of gotchas, like public folder replication and so on).

Are you using NTLM authentication or forms?  If NTLM, then if your users have the new address in the Intranet zone they will not need to log on.

Are the additional mailboxes also moved?  Are you accessing them from internally or externally (via firewall?)?

No front end backend setup. The exchange server is the only one in our domain. Which is replacing our old Only exchange server.....I basically did a move mailbox for all of the users to the new server.

The authenication problem in OWA .........what does internal have to do with it? Many of my external users have never logged on to the domain?

ALL of the USERS mailboxes were moved was there something extra I was supposed to move as well. Is there a security setting I need to change.

Hopefully I have provided more info to help....Please let me know ASAP....Monday is coming!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks a bunch for the help!

also with regard to the authentication I get the desired result if I just allow only clear text from the IIS side....

but this is unsecure and prompts the user as such during the OWA login process.

If you are accessing OWA from outside a firewall then different authentication options are available depending on the firewall.

For NTLM to work, the client has to authenticate directly with the Exchange server or with an NTLM firewall (such as ISA Server).  A simple pass-through firewall will be fine, but others may interfere.

For basic security the password is sent in clear text, but you can get round this by packing it in SSL.  This is the normal secure website strategy.

Remember as well that changes you make in IIS can be overwritten by Exchange System Attendant.  You need to make most changes in Exchange System Manager, otherwise the changes will roll-back.

It would also be helpful to have some more info, including:

1)  Are you using the Default Website for OWA, or a custom HTTP virtual server?
2)  Can you get access to OWA from the server without providing the domain name?
3)  Are you using forms authentication?
4)  Is your server in the same domain as your users?

One option in the forms authentication is to edit the scripts so that the domain is assumed if it is not provided.  This is something I have done in the past.  This can be necessary when the primary e-mail address domain and the user domain do not match.
