Hi Guys,

We have 1 user who cannot seem to login to OWA. I have tried ticking allow inheritable permissions in the security tab in AD and this was already ticked. I checked in exchange 07 to see if OWA was enabled and it is. We have migrated from Exchange 03 to 07 earlier this year and everything went ok. The user was able to use her webmail fine but it just stopped working all of a sudden. I checked to see that she is not part of the admins group as this overides the permissions. I also checked her AD settings and security settings against my AD account and they are Identical and yet I can still access OWA fine. she gets the following error message:

Request

User host address: 0.0.0.0

I have been through countless forums and websites to find an answer. Some people have the same issue and havent found a resolution.

Any help would be appreciated guys thanks.

Refer IIS logs on CAS server for the Problem user.

Start > Run > Logfiles > W3svc1

Take LDP dump of a User whose OWA is working with the Problem users.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/224543
By comparing both User dumps you can find the difference.

I fixed the issue by recreating the mailbox. None of the above worked but thanks for your help guys.
