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.

did you tried to access your owa from different computers?
please clear cache in your computer browser and try accessing it again.

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

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