Hello,

After solving the issue I had on this post http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/Q_26825533.html
I realized another one appeared : I cannot synchronize via Exchange Push anymore.

Basically, when I change the authentication settings of Exchange website on IIS, I cannot get my mails.
If anyone has an idea... I would be happy!
Thank you

To give some more information, if I change the settings back to when I had the problems with OWA, the Exchange Push works

Please read through my article, check your IIS settings, run the test on the test site and then fix any errors that appear.

thank you, I'll read that.
Before starting, the server on which Exchange 2003 is installed is Windows 2000. I guess there is some differences between IIS 5.0 and higher versions ?
for exemple "realm" doesn't appears ont my version.

Ah - that could be interesting.  I have never worked on an Exchange 2003 / Windows 2000 server before so can't guarantee the results!

Don't worry too much about the realm / domain - MS usually leave them as \ and blank.

Have a read through and if you have any questions - get them in today as I am away for a week starting tomorrow.

I went through your article (wich is very clear, thank you!) and changed a few things. I had no "Exchange-OMA" Virtual directory, just OMA.
Active Sync is working again, but I get back to my orignal problem, the webmail via Internet Explorer ask for the "domain\username" instead of just "username"

Have you specified the Default Domain on the Exchange Virtual Directory on the Directory Security Tab, Top Edit Button?  If you add that in (click on Select), then run iisreset, try logging in without the domain name now - I just tried it and it works on an SBS 2003 server we manage.

Should be the internal domain name - or USERDNSDOMAIN setting from a command prompt when you type SET.

Please try changing it to that and then run iisreset and then try OWA again.

Unfortunately - SatyaPathak's standard post of the IIS settings / Auth settings is nothing more than a simple list of settings that are not correct.

Do you want me to re-open that question so that it can be resolved correctly without messing up your Activesync?

Yes if possible Alan ?
thank you.
By the way the UserDNSDomain doesn't change anything!

Bah humbug!

I'll re-open the other question so you can address it in that one and get a solution that doesn't involve messing with the IIS auth settings!

Ok, so ActiveSync is working fine, as long as I don't touch Exchange Virtual Directory authentication settings. So we can close this Post.
Thank you.

Objecting to closure as I provided you with the correct IIS settings for the Exchange Virtual directory which you had been incorrectly advised to change by another 'Expert' in another question.

This question was about how to make Activesync work and I have solved that for you.

Comment that should be accepted as the solution should be http:#a34914503
