This will probably be down to the version of internet explorer/browser you are using. What are you trying to use to connect?

In the exchange management console type

get-CASMailbox <Mailboxname> | fl 

Open in new window


In there is a parameter called 'OWAPremiumEnabled' check to see if this is set to false or true

If this is false then use the following command

set-casmailbox <mailboxname> -OWAPremiumClientEnabled $true

Open in new window

Internet Explorer 11 has a problem with all versions of Exchange unless you have updated them in the last 48 hours.

Exchange 2010 requires SP3 with rollup 3 (released Monday)
Exchange 2013 requires CU3 (released Monday)

Exchange 2007 doesn't have a fix for it yet so you have to use compatibility mode.

Don't bother changing anything in Exchange, it will not help.

You can type the command into the management shell by going to

Start > programs > Microsoft exchange server 2010 > Exchange management shell

The rollup will stop the services during the install.

If you have Exchange 2010 SP3 (14.3) then you need to ensure that the service pack files are in the same place as they were when you installed the service pack originally. A lot of people clean up by removing them, but the installer looks for them in the current rollups. This is because of one of the patches from an earlier rollup.
