I am trying to enable password chnage in OWA 2003.  I have added the virtual directory to the server. I have an SSL Cert.  When i try to browse to https://localhost/iisadmpwd i get 403.  Any suggestions?

Thank you

The link that dan_blagut posted has the info you need.  Your URL can't just be https://localhost/iisadmpwd (unless you change the default content page list).  Try using https://localhost/iisadmpwd/aexp2.asp or https://localhost/iisadmpwd/aexp2b.asp
Or you can set the default page to aexp2.asp

Yep, that's what I meant by "unless you change the default content page list".  :)
