When I attempt to create, reply or forward to a message in OWA 2003, the appropriate
window opens, but is blue/grey in color, and contains only this text, centered in the

The exclamation point is dark red, the text is black.
I've dumped the client browser cache, removed all unnecessary controls in
"C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files", and rebooted the system. I've cleared the SSL
state. I've reset the browser advanced settings.
The problem persists. Any suggestions?

We recently installed Hotfix KB31464 and Service Pack 1 for our Exchange
Server 2003. However, after that, we're having problems with our Outlook Web
Access system. From IE, the page says it is 'loading' but it never does
anything else. Clicking upon the different links (contacts, calendar, etc)
does nothing. If you open the page in Firefox, it links to the right folders
(contacts, calendar) and opens them up (like emails, events, contacts), but
the images aren't showing up (showing up as broken links). Is anyone else
having this problem or know how to rememdy this?

On a given tab, certain fields I want to be read-only for most users, except
for roles "system admins" or "system customizers". These roles would be the
ones needing to update the fields periodically.
Is there an easy OnLoad js for this?
I know how to make fields read-only and/or disabled on a global basis, just
not on a peruser or security group level.
The c360 field security addon would definately do what I need, but is too
expensive to justify for us.

If you want the user to see a prompt, open the file.
Do a SaveAs

They can still answer "no" to this prompt, right?

All of a sudden, I can't edit any of my word docs because they all claim to

Until today, I was always able to edit and overwrite my files.

I have an Exchange 2003 server that was running beautifully until we
found we had a problem managing public folders from Exchange System
Manager, requiring a new SSL certificate to be generated. We were able
to fix the System Manager problem, but then we found that OWA was
broken. We get the dreaded "Page cannot be displayed" error when
trying to go in on port 443, and attempts to go in through 80 results
in a 404.3 error (must be viewed over SSL).

When I bring up OWA, it asks me for my authentication twice in a row. The
first one appears to be just logging onto the server and the second one
seems to be logging into Exchange. I really don't know exactly.
The first authentication box says "Site: mydomain.com"
The second authentication box says "Site: server.mydomain.com"
Is this normal?

I have 2 exchange 2000/W2K boxes, and 1 exchange 2003/W2K3 box in my

The box I am replacing is also the OWA server. When I use my new

If, however, the mailbox resides in the mail store on my previously

In Outlook 2000, after reading a message that requested a read receipt and
accepting the request (sending the read receipt), a message would show up in
my outbox briefly, then in the Sent Items folder. This was quite handy
sometimes. In Outlook 2003, read receipts that I send all seem to be hidden.
They don't show up in the outbox and they don't show up as a sent message.
Is there an option to get the previous behavior?
They never showed up in Outlook 2000 or any other version. Were you
thinking of something else?

We rebooted the Windows 2000 server. Now when we try to

...Problem with OWA
From Outlook Web Access, when I create a new meeting and I choose a
ressource, the ressource don't tell me that the reservation is ok.
Moreover, the ressource don't put her status to "occupied".
But, if I create the same meeting from Outlook, I don't have this problem.
I will be notified and the ressource will be occupied.
Is it a bug or how can I fixe the problem?
Thanks in advance!
Post to an Exchange group as OWA is a part of Exchange, not Outlook.
microsoft.public.exchange.clients would be a good place to start.

Hi .I setup a new windows 3K server, move AD on it and install exchange 2003
with SP2, test it and seems to me that everything was working. Then delete

no mailboxes appear. I just have some little boxes for the pictures and

Any help is welcome. I already tried to reinstall exchange and reapply SP2
but that didn't help.

...Exchange '03 OWA re-install
Anyone know of a quick and easy way to do this? I've only briefly looked at
it and looks like I need to completely re-install exchange.
Correct. OWA is now completely integrated into Exchange and is no longer a
component that can be installed separately. What's the reason for needing
to reinstall OWA? I only ask because depending on the problem, it may be
necessary to reinstall IIS as well.

I have Outlook and OWA for everybody. The clients can read their email

Now I would like to change this for a few users.
I need to use OWA inside of company but not through Internet for a few people.
How can I do this?
I have a Front-end , back-end infrastructure.
Do I need ISA server?
If I switch the OWA check box off in AD, these people cannot use OWA inside.
Thanky you very much indeed.
