OWA logon requirements

Greetings EE gods.

Ok, we have Exchange 2003, with OWA running.  From outside logging onto OWA, I have an issue.

Why is it that the domain administrators, and local administrators can logon to OWA with just username and password, however users have to use user@domain then password.

I would like it so my users only have to use user, not user@domain.

Thanks much.
:)

Under Authentication Methods (where the boxes are grayed out) check the option for "Basic authentication (password is sent in clear text)" then the boxes should light up.

To make it so you don't have to put in the domain go into IIS and do the following;

1) Right click on the Exchange website and choose properties
2) Click on the directory security tab
3) Click on Edit under "Authentication and access control"
4) Next to Default domain click Select and choose your domain
5) Next to Realm click Select and choose your domain again

This should make is so you don't have to put in the domain name like your requesting.

If you enable Form-Based authentication your problem should go away.

You can enable form based authentication by;

1) Open Exchange System manager
2) Click on View and select Detail
3) Expand Administrative Groups > first administrative group > Servers > YourServerName > Protocol > HTTP
4) Right click on Exchange Virtual Server and choose Properties
5) Click on the settings tab
6) Check the box for "Enable Forms Based Authentication"

the two blanks DEFAULT DOMAIN, and REALM are greyed out.
And right now, we don't have https enabled for formes authentication.
