We are in the process of moving one of our offices. A new T1 has been ordered but will not be ready for another 2 weeks. Until then, I need to get 5 users connected to their Exchange email via OWA. The problem is, the server these users logon to is not available until the new T1 is active. Is there a way to get these users connected to OWA without authenticating to a server?

Exchange 2003 on Server 2003

Thanks,
Rick Knight

If auth is required, is there a way to temporarily move the account to another server for auth?

What do you mean "users logon to is not available"? Does that mean they will not be able to contact a DC\GC?

The DC these users normally log onto has been shutdown for the move. This is part of the sale of a division of our business and the buyers wanted the site vacated sooner than was expected. Now we've moved the user into a new office and have ordered the T1, but until the T1 is delivered, the office will not be connected to our Intranet. The users have no DC to authenticate to right now.

No DC\GC = no Exchange auth. :(

While this was not the solution I wanted, it does seem to be the only solution.

Thanks,
