Enable Exchange Web Services on Exchange 2007

I found it.  EMC doesn't seem to make any of the authentication information available for EWS (like it does for OWA).  The EWS authentication settings can be found via IIS Manager.  In IIS Manager 6, this is found by selecting the EWS folder and then double-clicking 'Authentication'.  In pre-IIS Manager 6 versions this is found by right-clicking the EWS folder and selecting Properties > Directory Security > Authentication and access control > Edit...
