Outlook webaccess says disabled for user

Posted on 2013-06-28
Last Modified: 2013-07-03
When I try to login with my account I have no issues, but one user cannot login. EMC says owa is enabled for this user. I have tried turning owa off then on again and I tried running this command: Set-CASMailbox -Identity <username>@<yourdomain>.com -OWAEnabled:$true (with the proper user and domain info). No luck. Any thoughts? Running Exchange 2010.

Did you or someone setup OWA on the exchange server, and is the service on or activated?

Is the Domain name needed prior to their login? Are all attempts, that fail to access, being done from outside the local network?

IE/ 'Domain\login'

You are having no issues so OWA is active and working. When this happens it is usually a specific User or computer issue. Depending on how OWA was configured you may or may not need the Domain but start there.

Don't think that is the link you meant to send nate. One is dead the other goes to a page about Microsoft lync server.

Ok. Magically it is working now. Maybe when I sent through the powershell command it just took a bit to register the change. Thanks for the help all.

This just started working a couple of hours after I sent the powershell command through. Not sure why the delay happened.
