Does anyone know how to enable Exchange Web Services on Exchange 2007.  The MSDN documentation makes it sound like it is enabled by default, however I'm not seeing the EWS virtual directory that it keeps referring to in the documentation.  Ultimately, I'm trying to find out what authentication scheme the web services use.

Server context, client access role, OWA, is that what you're asking?

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...
