I am having some issues with the OWA and directory security. We have a front-end and back-end 2003 Exchange servers. What are the settings to communicate correctly?

For secure communications on the default website I have enable Require Secure Channel. What do I need to do to get OWA to work?

I get this error after trying to login.

The page must be viewed over a secure channel

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Exchange 2003 is out of support so your support is going to be diminishing
Anyway, for the obvious,

have your IIS assign the require certificate?
have your browse your website using https?
is this server install on windows 2003 ? (again, windows 2003 also out of support by now)

You have to disable "Require Secure Channel" option to be able to access OWA without SSL otherwise you must need to use https:// in your browser. Are you able to access OWA with HTTPS? If not SSL is not properly installed and configured on default website.
