I have the following setup:
* 5 static IPs
* Mailenable standard v8.01
* Windows Server 2008 R2 on a VM

Ive setup a domain in the configuration console and a mailbox with sysadmin rights.

URL Pattern is: http://webmail.{redacted}.com

I have tried to login as follows:
{user}@{domain}.com
{domain}.com\{user}
{user}

And I keep getting the following error message:
Unknown or Disabled User!



Thank you in advance for any help you may provide.
John

I believe mailenable is a 32bit application did you check your registry under wow64 to make sure the correct key hav  been created. If not you may need to export the 64 bit key branch an edit if for the 32 branch and import it. Did you create a new application pool?

OK, the app pool is using .NET 4.0.
The registry key is located here: HKLM\software\wow6432node\mail enable\.....

I created a new postoffice and new domain as well as a new user (test) and I still get the unknown user or disabled error message.

I have allso done a clean reinstall (just in case).

Thanks.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Ok, on your Mailenable standard v8.01 server install WireShark. Start wireshark then try to log into Mailenable standard v8.01 and let the log in error out. Stop the trace after the error and review the capture...

This will help us find where things are breaking down... Feel free to upload the cap file.

OK.... Information needed for the report:
Server IP = 192.168.1.7
Computer accessing the server = 192.168.1.55

on the file, make sure you remove the .TXT extension in order to load it into wireshark
WireShark-HTTP-Capture-02-11-201.txt

Issue resolved. I went into the domain settings for ME and reconfigured it for the domain name I am trying to use. Got the error, read the event message and changed it back to my internal domain for authentication and every thing is good to go!!! Thanks for your help.
