Please give the Authenticated Users NTFS permission to CLient access folder, and also in IIS 7 in the Website level and inherit to the sub foders.

And still you face the issue, please perform the removal and recreation of the OWA virtual Directories by follownig the kb- 941201.

Please check out and revert back if you have any issues.

Check if this user-account is missing the inheritance permission
If yes, we need to configure the same

1. Open Active Directory Users and Computers.
2. Click “View”->”Advanced Features” to enable advanced features.
3. Right click the problematic Exchange 2007 account and click “Properties”.
4. Click “Security” tab, click “Advanced” button.
5. Please enable the option “Allow inheritable permissions from the parent to propagate to this object and all child objects. Include these with entries explicitly defined here”. Click “OK”.
