We are running Microsoft Exchange 2003.  Our webmail users are having to put in emaill address for user name in order to log into webmail.  We use to just have to put in user name without the full email address.  Has anyone else had this problem before?

It's actually the User Principal Name that they are supplying.  This is usually the same as the email address, but not always.  Does it help if they log in with DOMAIN\USERNAME instead of just USERNAME ?

If they type domain\username it does work.  But we want them to be able to just type in user name like it used to.  This just all the sudden happen, and we don't know why.

Go into Exchange System Manager, then into Servers/Protocols/HTTP until you find the Exchange Virtual Directory (not the Virtual Server).  In the Authentication properties, configure the Default Domain.  This is usually set to \ , but if that does not work, it might help to type in your domain name.  If it is all greyed out, then you have Forms-based Auth enabled, which is a problem, since it is supposed to take care of this itself, and there is nothing to configure.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

When in the Authentication properties.  Our Default Domain is already in there.

Do you have Forms-based Authentication (the blue logon page) enabled?

Okay, thanks.  In the Authentication properties you found earlier, can you replace the domain name with the backslash \ .  It might take a few minutes for changes you make in ESM to transfer to IIS.

I have put it back to the backslash, and I am still having the problem.

Do you actually have Basic Auth still enabled?  Having only Integrated Auth will always require the domain name.  The default setting is to have both Integrated and Basic enabled.
