check your OWA auth in the console, you may find it is set to username & password not, DOMAIN/User & password, or user@domain & password..

As previously mentioned, you should be using /owa for E2007, not /exchange.  But if you really, really want to be able to use /exchange, have a look at the properties of the Default Web Site on the server, and make sure that a Host Header value is not configured, and that it is listening on 'All Unassigned' IP addresses.
