OWA questions #2

A couple of questions I am having problems find the answers to:

1. Is there an easy way to change OWA to be at http://localhost instead of http://localhost/exchange

2. Is there an easy way to change OWA so that the domain name is not required when logging on (as though it is automatically passed)?

3. Are there any good, free, mailbox-to-web archivers out there?

Thanks in advance

1. There are a few ways to have it where users type in http://<server>/, 
and get redirected to http://<server>/exchange.  The easiest way is to do a 
redirection through the IIS console.  The following assumes Windows 2003.  
Even if you're using Windows 2000, it will be similar(just a few change of 
words, but same options/steps).

a. Open the IIS console(Start -- Programs -- Administration Tools -- 
Internet Services Manager).
b. Go to the properties of the Default Web Site(DWS).
c. Go to the Home Directory tab.
d. Choose the "A redirection to a URL" option.
e. In the "Redirect to" field, put "/exchange" (w/o the quotes).
f. Put a check in the "A directory below URL entered".
g. Stop and restart the DWS.

2. In order to not have to put in the domain, you need to give the Basic 
authentication settings, for the Exchange & Public virtual directories, a 
default domain name(internal netbios domain name).  The authentication 
settings of all Exchange servers(front-end and back-end) should be as 

Note: Remove all authentications settings, except those listed below.

ESM = Set in Exchange System Manager
IIS = Set in the IIS console

Exchange & Public(ESM): Basic(w/ Default Domain = <internal netbios name of 
your domain>)
Exchweb & all subdirectories(IIS): Anonymous or Basic(w/ Default Domain = 
<internal netbios name of your domain>)

3. Not that we know of.

Re: Excel 2007 column chart fill question
Hi, I would like to fill my column chart with cross hatch, vertical hatch, horizontal hatch, etc. instead of colours. The only method I've found currently is to fill with different picture types that have the different type of hatches. I'm certain there must be another method. Does anyone know how? Thank you. Hi, Pattern fills have been deprecated, MS term for removed, in 2007. Picture fill is the only way.

Problems with OWA after Installing SP1
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? I to...

Forensic Question
I have been given the task of proving a possibilty and am under some serious pressure from my employer. Here is the scenario: we will use the identities of PersonA and PersonB. At one time PersonA was given access rights to PersonB's mailbox because PersonB worked for them and PersonA had a reason to monitor. Time passed on and it was forgotten to remove PersonA's rights from PersonB's mailbox after PersonB moved into another position. It is now believed that PersonA may have continued to monitor PersonB's mailbox without PersonB's knowledge. Is it possible to go ba...

Purchase Order Workflow Question
I'm wondering if there is a way within RMS to enter multiple items quickly on a PO. Right now, I am having to go into the Add Item area each time, which is just an annoying and time consuming extra step. In previous softwares I've used, you can simply enter your quantities directly on a form in your item lookup without having to look up items each time. Is there a more efficient way to do this within RMS and I'm missing it? Try the "Quick Scan" button. -- Jason Hunt Advanced Computer Systems I would, except these are items that need to have barcodes generated w...

General Question on Structure
I'm converting a very large VB6 MDI application to C# that creates one "informational display" child form and then a varying number of other child forms all of the same type. The application will make socket connections to a couple of different servers, do serial port communication, some radio communication, play audio, and a number of other things. In the VB app, most of this work was done in the "information display" form. I keep running into cross threading issues when trying to reference items created in other threads (I thought I knew what a thread was, b...

OWA: Best course of action when OWA is generally defunct?
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). Generally speaking, the Exchange server seems to be in good health - - it's only the Web-based parts of the system that seem hose...

Why does OWA...
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.

OWA requires second authentication if mailbox is not on OWA server
I have 2 exchange 2000/W2K boxes, and 1 exchange 2003/W2K3 box in my enterprise. I have just added a second exchange 2003 SP2/W2K3 box which will replace one of my exchange 2000 boxes. All 3 servers are back end servers and house mailbox stores. The box I am replacing is also the OWA server. When I use my new server to open a mailbox through OWA that is in the mailbox store on the same (new E2K3SP2) server I log in without any issues. If, however, the mailbox resides in the mail store on my previously existing Exchange 2003 mail server, I am prompted to enter my login credentials twice. ...
