I am supporting a server which is about 1 year old and runs Windows Small Business Server 2003 (fully up to date). Normally it behaves fine but recently a new problem has emerged:
When using Outlook Web Access, you can log in fine, but any user I've tried has problems opening/replying/forwarding emails which have long subject lines (such as the Working Remotely with Windows Small Business Server email) or contain characters like : (colon) . There doesn't appear to be one defining characteristic with all the affected emails.
When opening them, instead of the message pane on the righthand side, I get an error page stating:
The page that you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, had its content expired, or is temporarily unavailable.
Please try the following:
* Make sure that the Web site address displayed in the address bar of your browser is spelled and formatted correctly.
* If you reached this page by clicking a link, contact the Web site administrator to alert them that the link is incorrectly formatted.
* Click the Back button or open the home page for this Web site and look for other links to the information that you want.
HTTP Error 400 - Request is badly formed.
Internet Information Services (IIS)
Technical Information (for support personnel)
* Go to Microsoft Product Support Services and perform a title search for the words HTTP and 400.
* Open IIS Help, which is accessible in IIS Manager (inetmgr), and search for topics titled Web Site Setup, Web Site Administration, and About Custom Error Messages.
One-word subject emails seem to be fine. I've tried everything I can think of but have had no joy. It doesn't appear to have any relation to a similar problem on an MS KB where the HTTP Error is to do with the URL being too long. I've tried the 3 registry fixes as suggested anyway with no luck. Have also downloaded .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 but it won''t apply so I appear to have the latest version.
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.
