Cannot log on as IUSR - Server 2003 and Exchange 2003

during an audit, this and the IWAM account were scrutinized for not having logged on in xxx days and was tagged as a dormant account.  I went as far as temporarily adding the IUSR account to the administrators group (not online of course), while this worked for the IWAM account, it is not possible with the IUSR account and it gave me some error regarding that the account needs to be added to the Remote Desktop Users group and to ensure Allow Logon Through Terminal Services had Remote Desktop Users (I added USR there as well). I dont know what that had to do with it... but even after adding IUSR there, I still cant log on... again, this is just to clear up the dormant account issue

Info on these accounts and what they are used for; usually i assign a complex password (replicating this setting in IIS for any sites hosted/publishied) then i disable the accounts themselves.
