Have your Exchange admin check the IIS settings, etc.  It appears to be stemming from there.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Is this happening for all client PCs or just some? If only some, install the SMIME client from the options page in OWA. That should fix it. If all, then you need to look at IIS. Let us know.

I have got the solution.........this happens generally when users trying top open OWA link on Vista/Windows 7 OS based machine.Since vista OS comes with IE8 and Dynamic HTML active x control no longer and this control requires to edit web based for text.To get fixed this issue,open the owa link on vista machine then select option from left side and then  update S/MIME from email security section...then enjoy by opening owa link windows Vista machine without problem.

Active x that requires to open owa pages to edit mode,no longer exist with vista IE8.You can be ensured by opening the owa at the same time on MOzila browser and you will not receive any problem
