Some users in the company have access to OWA but someone dont's. I suspect that this has something to do with IE settings because we are on the same domain.

Which settings should I change?

Best regards, Alice

Hi Alice,

What happens when the users try to access OWA? Do they get an error message?

Are the users that receive this error in the same area or use similar connections?

I see you're not using SSL? Does your OWA not require SSL?

The other users that have access is sitting in the same room as me. Two of the computers don't reach the logon site but others do. Same domain and same network. Strange?
