Exchange 2003

Hi.
Ive just inherited an older Exchange 2003 server setup.
They weren't actively using webmail. On investigation most of config appears to be in place as they use HTTP access for outlook.
So If I browse to that /exchange I get the log on.
However only the domain admin account appears to be able to login / work.
All the users have outlook web-access in their exchange features.

What am I missing?
Thanks.

What error do they get if try to login ?
What is the internal URL ?
Is there any other server introduced apart from the exchange 2003 server ?

If you don't know the history of the system, reset the virtual directories.

Then run Microsoft Update (accessed from the Windows Update web site) and ensure the server is fully patched on Exchange updates.

There is no error. Just returns to empty login box.

No other servers involved.

Hello,

Check http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883380.

And check also AD permissions (would help if they have them inherited, you can do a test at first).
