What browser? the newer revision of Google Chrome does not allow this as it discontinued a required function within the code: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/4fns56FokxY%5B1-25-false%5D

Sounds similar, most likely the case. What version of Exchange 2013 are you at? If you are below CU3 I would recommend updating to the latest.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

is javascript enabled within IE11? Add the webmail.domain.com (or *.domain.com) to the safe site list?

It's the CU6 Interim Update that caused the issue, and the this is the fix


if anyone is using the Interim Update (Hotfix) "Exchange2013-KB2997209_2997847-x64-en.msp" please be aware of the following bug in this hotfix:

NOTE: Another issue that we have seen only from some E2013 On-Premises customers who installed fixes for any of the above E2013 CU6 related issues is that “Using OWA, users cannot create new messages or reply to existing messages” – These are mostly installer issues where OWA files are not copying correctly in the new version directory. Ideally the content of these two folders, i.e. “V15\ClientAccess\Owa\prem\15.0.995.31” and “V15\ClientAccess\Owa\prem\15.0.995.29” should be identical, now if for any reason, they are not then it can break the OWA experience like described above. Take these steps if you run into related issues:

·        -Backup the contents of “15.0.995.31” folder to a different folder/directory

·        -Copy the files and folders from “15.0.995.29” to “15.0.995.31” folder

         – iisreset

this should fix the issue …

I just found another workaround, not sure if this was already posted or not.
From chrome, install the IE tab extension, once installed, from IE tab page, under AUTO URL add the full address of your mail ej: https://mail.thisismydomaing.org
Close chrome, and try again.
We weren't unable to even open the login screen and this works, at least for now. :)
