Did you change anything after installing OWA?? OWA isn;t something you would to change in IIS itself.. Normally if OWA doesn't work anymore Microsofts answers is to just reinstall OWA (only OWA).

Here's alink on how to recreate the virtual directories for OWA.

I was following the instructions but I am stuck on Step 4. When I explore OWA I get a "network path was not found" error.

Actually I get an error before that. When I try to retrieve the password for anonymoususer it says that "The parameter anonymoususerpass is not set at this node."

Do you actually have a user that is called IUSR_<Computername>?? This is the account that IIS creates when being installed. It enumerates the anonymous logon.

Also, are you actually using Exchange 2007?? Cause i haven't seen any referenmce to that yet..
You migth be able to just put in the CD and do a repair on the OWA part of Exchange.

I put in the CD but I do not see where to run a repair.

Not a repair, you need to rerun the installation and then only choose to install the OWA option.

Did you had any kind of redirection set for OWA?, It's not a default behaviour of OWA and should not happen unless any redirection is in place
Something on the lines as per http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998359.aspx
If you have any redirections set go ahead and remove it, uninstalling CAS and reinstalling it might not help your cause, since the redirection is set on IIS...

After installing the Client Access Role, i only had to set OWA up in the exchange console and turn POP and IMAP services to Automatic and everything is back up to normal.

Thanks alot!!!
