SBS 2003 Exchange 2003 Users Cannot access OWA but Administrator can

SBS 2003 Exchange 003 SP2 . I use this system for testing and was trying to get OMA working. I used "Exchhange 2003 -Activesync Connection Problems FAQ' to get it working. I was using the administrator account for testing and now have OMA working. I went back to test it with a user account and OWA will not work from either inside or outside (RWW or direct I can logon to desktops through RWW for both administrator or users. I don't recall if I could logon to OWA (as a user) before using alanhardisty's FAQ or not. If I test OMA the administrator account works logging into but if I try and logon using a user account I get, " If you have recently changed your password, the system may not yet have completed the change. Please wait a short time and try again. If this is not the case, your Exchange server mailbox has not been created. Please access your account via Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Outlook Web Access to create your user mailbox. Please contact your system administrator for additional assistance." I know that the server mailbox is set up as I can logon to a workstation and open outlook and see emails.

what you need is some alanhardisty:

going thru all of that, with detail and attention, should fix your issues.  you have some permissions in IIS out of whack.

although that says activesync, it hits OWA too

That is what I used to get it to the condition it is in right now. I am now trying to figure out why only the administrator can OWA and OMA. The users can RWW and go to a desktop but can't do the others.

The solution from byron44035v3 was half of the problem. The other half from kupzpenny fixed the major problem suggested in ID: 21762940 "Exchange 2003 OWA"  "Something got messed up in your permissions. Follow this link;en-us;327843&Product=exch2003" That fixed the problem
