Hi

We use OWA on exchange 2003 and it works well. Now thing is we want some users to open different users mailbox via owa but when the use the url http:\\servername\exchange\mailbox name it gives page cannot be displayed on some of them. Now the reason i say page cannot be displayed on SOME of them is it seems that if the mailbox name  does not contain any spaces it works so for example this will work http:\\servername\exchange\info works no problem but http:\\servername\exchange\me you gives page cannot be displyed 404 error.

any ideas?

cheers

Have you tried using %20% for a space..?
So if you have username of "my name" then try
http://exchangeserver/exchange/my%20%name

* The best way would be to access the mailbox using the recipient address policy (i.e the email prefix stamped for that mailbox)

* For example if the email address is firstname.lastname@domain.com then while accessing OWA you can simply say:

http://exchangeserver/exchange/firstname.lastname

* Just make sure that the users have access rights on the other users mailbox which they are trying to access and that the mailbox has got OWA enabled for itself.

Good Luck (^_^)

* And you could also try accessing the mailbox using the Alias name for it (found in the Exchange General tab)

Sometimes, you need to use the full SMTP address, e.g.
http://server/exchange/user@domain.com

I've not seen that before.  Can you find the ISI log entries generated when you try to reply?  Note that IIS log times are in GMT.
