Error on exchange 2003 webmail login. 440 login timeout

Hi guys,

I am having an issue where my exchange webmail is returning a "440 login timeout" error when accessed internally and externally.

It was previously working and the problem seems to have started when I changed the administrator password.

the system is a windows sbs 2003 domain controller. It runs exchange 2003 and users access the webmail from home.

Normal Email is running properly, I have reset the services and reset the server but am still getting the error.

if anyone has any ideas that could help please let me know.

Thanks guys

Use this Link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917686 and this link  http://krva.blogspot.com/2008/01/owa-2007-error-440-login-timeout.html to solve your issue. This happens due to non-syncronization of password between IIS and AD.

thanks for that,

in the step

Right-click auth, and then click Properties. On the Directory tab, verify that the Read check box is checked.

the read box was not checked.  

but when i got to the step

Expand usa. In the right pane, right-click logon.asp, and then click Properties.
On the File tab, verify that the Read check box is checked.

there is no logon.asp there, only logoff.

I skipped it and followed the steps, no luck, still have the 440 login timeout error.

: (

I'll keep at it.

You can manually set the IUSR password in Both IIS and AD.

What are the authentication methods that you have selected? Apart From Windows Integrated Authentication, Is any other method selected ?

Step 5:

Start IIS Manager.
Expand Server_Name, expand Web sites, and then expand Default Web Site.
Right-click Exchweb, and then click Properties.
On the Directory Security tab, click Edit in the Authentication and access control area.
In the Authentication Methods dialog box, verify that the Enable anonymous access check box is checked.
Click to select the Basic authentication (password is sent in clear text) check box.
Type the name of the default user domain in the Default domain text box. You can click Select and then select the default domain from a list.
Click OK.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
Right-click Server_Name in the left pane of the console, point to All Tasks, and then click Restart IIS.
In the Stop/Start/Restart dialog box, click Restart Internet Services on the Server_Name in the What do you want IIS to do list.
