Dear Experts,

I have a freshly installed EXCH2010, everything seems to work fine except a small confusing error:

OWA shows up different in Chrome, Firefox, MSIE, Safari. The only browser it works with is Chrome, all other browsers whows different Theme, and the most annoying thing:

The Option link dowsnt work. Only in Chrome. All other case I face with the OWA login page, and no way I can log in. It doesnt accept any password. Here is the link it brings up, maybe it helps:


When I go back to https://q1037.company.local/owa/ Whoops, I'm logged in again, so session and cookies are seem to be ok.

What could this be?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

With any browser other than IE you will get the light version of OWA this is because the other browsers don't support the technology behind OWA

to get the full user experience you need to use Internet Explorer

Actually, you should now be able to get the premium GUI in FF and Safari:
Although this suggests that Safari on Windows will only show the basic GUI:
