My outlook 2003 OWA indicates "The service is not available. Please try again later."

I was trying to setup an Exchange 2003 server to allow iPhone sync, and now I get the following error message when checking webmail: "The service is not available. Please try again later."

I'm not sure if this was happening BEFORE  I was trying anything. (The only thing I did was install the RDP component...)

Can you check that all the services that are set to automatic are started?

Can you try resetting the Exchange Virtual Directories as per: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883380

I normally use method 2

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

OOops sorry!

You could try method 3 in the link I provided.

Also check all the permissions etc as per this guide: http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Resetting-OWA-Folder-IIS-security-permissions-Exchange-2003.html

hmmm... still a no go. Funny thing is that we can access our email fine on the iphones now thanks to your link above.

I guess that will be good enouph for now anyway. As long as we can access on the iPhones we're happy.
