I got in today and found that the OWA for my exchange 2003 server is stuck in a loop, when I log in as any user it will just take me back to the login screen.  If I access the login screen internally I get a message about the cert being incorrect, I click okay and it takes me back to the login screen.  Settings in IIS look okay but I am not expert on it.

Is it possible you've done an update to IIS recently?  

Is this of any help:

Try restarting IIS,
Do you get the same problem internally? - https://localhost/owa  (from your exchange server)

Some updates reset the security preferences in IIS as well, I'd check to see what authentication was enabled.

I was able to resolve it, when I deleted the IIS virtual diretories and then restarted the server this cleared the code or file that was causing the loop.  Thank you for your help.
