OWA 2007 access denied


Some of my users have issues when trying to connect to OWA.
We gave them the url https://[server]/owa
It works fine for almost everybody except for a few of them.
I checked the feature in EMC and they are OWA enabled.
They get the error message :
You don't have permission to access /owa/ on this server"

any suggestion ?

Thank you.

it was urgent and finally, it is gone for some users and I do not have news from the others...
So I do not know what to think about that...
Thank you all for your help !
If you run IE as another user, do they stll get this issue? Is it when they browse to OWA or is it when they login they get this problem?

More details from my users :
They are able to connect, to read, to send or reply to colleages (I mean users on the same Exchange), but not able to send emails to external people.

Thank you for the tip.
I checked and the option was already enabled.

No problems - worth a try.
