SBS 2011 Remote Web Workplace Unauthorized User Can still login?

I have a new install of SBS 2011 ( actually a migration from 2003 ) and am testing RWW.  I have users who have been removed from accessing RWW - I removed them from the SBS console and also verified their permissions through both group membership in AD and also through the rights on the Remote virtual directory.

But... somehow... these user accounts can still authenticate through RWW.  Granted, when they click a link within RWW it fails, but why are they even allowed to login through RWW?

No.  The unauthorized users can login through RWW, but cannot authenticate through OWA...

5.

In Users and Groups, select the user or group to whom you want to grant access.

Are the users created outside the SBS console that they aren't listed?
Any posibility to recreate them inside the SBS console (maybe disconnect the Exchange mailbox and reconnect it afterwards)?

Otherwise, of which Groups are they member of?

Turned out to be a permissions-related fix.  This was part of a migration to SBS 2011 and I inherited the AD implementation. Turned out some users belonged to a group that belonged to an Administrative group, which is why they had access.  Now good to go...
