Hi,

I Have a windows 2003 SBS SP2 (exchange 2003).

Recently we noticed that users were unable to connect using mobile devices as domain.com/oma did not return a page. I have had this same problem occur with another client and performing steps outlined in this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883380 to reset exchange virtual directories had worked for me before, unfortunately in this instance i am now unable to access Outlook Web Access despite the virtual directories rebuilding exactly as they should. I have confirmed that ExchWeb has anonymous authentication enabled but i'm unsure whether it is worth while running through the rebuild process again or which direction i should go next. Any help getting Outlook Web Access working again would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,

when trying to do an explicit login https://servername/exchange/mailboxuser...what is the result?
when  you try to access https://servername/public.....do you get any response?

Check on IIS Logs for any status codes.

Note:
In mobile devices when configuring Exchange Active Sync, we need to provide the servername or URL
not the URL/oma.

thanks for you comments - turns out that there is another site using port 443 so i have swapped OWA over to port 80 in the meantime which has allowed me to access it again.
