I'm having an issue with exchange server 2003. I windows server 2003 running as active directory only, and I have exchange server 2003 also running windows 2003. 2 servers both windows 2003 with one being AD and the other being exchange. the issue i'm having is that none of my users (unless your an admin) can access exchange via OWA or activesync. If they log onto the domain from their PC and open outlook it works fine, but if they try use OWA or Activesync it fails. I have created the additional virtual for activesync and i even reinstalled my IIS trying to fix this. Attached is 2 images that shows what may be causing the problem. image 1 shows when trying to connect via OWA using my FQDN i get a box prompting for a login. This is correct. If an admin logs in then it opens fine, but if a regular user logs it fails and then presents you with a authentication box pointing to my AD and not the exchange server. This happens on my local network. On a different network it just gives access denied. Maybe this is causing the issue. can anyone give any advise about this. Also I do have an SSL certificate but not using it at the moment while figuring this out.
This is the error I recieved while testing a regular account with www.testexchangeconnectivity.com
