Cannot access OWA

By ekseah ·
If I type in http://sitename/exchange/logon.asp, the login page comes up but there is no login box (where you type the domain/username and password) after I key in the username.

It goes straight to the "OWA was unable to get to your inbox." page.

In Internet Service Manager, in the Default Web Site properties, I have the redirect to the above URL in the Home Directory tab. Under the Directory Security tab I have both Anonymous and Challenge/Response checked.

In the Exchange folder properties (in Internet Service Manager) under the Virtual Directory tab I have the Local Path "c:\exchsrvr\webdata". Under Directory Security I have all boxes checked.

Are my settings correct? What happen to the login box?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

If your OS is windows XP and you just recently have upgraded to SP2, your internet explorer has some new features, like a popup blocker. This popup blocker has probably been activated. You can select certain sites, like the one you need for OWA where popups shouldn't be blocked, then you should get to your login display. You will probably also need to allow cookies for that site. You should be able to adjust those settings via Tools.....

have you tried logging into http://sitename/exchange/username ? I found that you can force a specific user better that way if the client isn't authenticating against the DC correctly. IE with a system crash the credentials might not match up correctly and you could be running off a cached version.
