Dear All,

I implemented Exchange 2007 SP on Windows 2008. I need to use OWA & Outlook anywhere, I hear that; I have to change a Registry keys to make OWA & Outlook anywhere work properly. If this is right, I need a help to know why I have to make those changes and what are the keys that I have to configure/create them in Registry.

Thanks

There is a problem with Outlook Anywhere and IPv6, but that was fixed in a Rollup. So if you have installed the latest Rollup 5 it should be OK.
Rollup 6 for SP1 i coming tomorrow.

What dosent work with OWA?

on the server can you get to https://localhost/owa  ??

Do you have ISA server?

Never had to make any registry changes for either OWA or Outlook Anywhere on Windows 2008. OWA is already enabled by default and Outlook Anywhere just needs the component added and the feature enabled in Exchange. Works straight out of the box.

You may be confusing the issue with RPC over HTTPS on Exchange 2003 that required registry hacking and the TCP/IP V6 issue.
Of course the TCP/IP v6 issue is down to people disabling features in Windows 2008 that they don't understand the implications of.

Dear Pret0rian,

Thanks for your replay, I found the following link which talk about this problem:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc671176.aspx

 Now, does there links that confirm solving this problem in Rollup 5? If yes; please provide it to me.

Hi devdept:

The fix was in Rollup 4, so it should be in Rollup 5 too.
