Disabling forms based authentication Exchange 2003

We are currently experiencing a problem where by a diary application on our network synchronises with Outlook and creates the same diary entries in Outlook.

This was all working fine until one day it stopped, the reason for it stopping is because the OMA Virtual Directory we created is requiring forms based authentication and I cannot see a way to turn this off for single directories, all I can see is the option to disable it for the whole Exchange Virtual Directory.

The Diary application synchronisation works on non-forms based authentication, but we have forgotten how we managed to set this up in the first place.

Any help would be appreciated.

OMA never required FBA, I think that there is something wrong with the OMA authenitcation, have you tried to change it using the IIS.

my best shot in this case to reset the Exchange virtual directories.

I would suggest method 2 from this document: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/817379

if that doesnt work you can reset the Virtual Directories as per: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883380 i normally use method 2

Hi guys, just to clarify incase I wasn't clear enough:
   
1) We need to run forms based authentication for the public facing webmail access

2) We have a second instance of exchange virtual directory created that was working without forms based authentication

3) The second instance of exchange virtual directory requires non forms based authentication

Again any help would be appreciated on how to get round this problem
