Hi guys,

not sure what happened but all of a sudden we are unable to access OWA. when I try to access it I get to the username and password screen but once credentials are entered i get to a page with the following error message:

The website cannot display the page
 


 HTTP 500
 

Most likely causes:
•The website is under maintenance.
•The website has a programming error.
 
I have tried doing an IISReset. Please help.

I tried several machines. It has to be something on the exchange server.
