OWA Issues on Macs With New Server

We recently replaced our Exchange server with an upgraded, new one.  We went 
from Windows 2000 server to Windows 2003 Server for the OS, but Exchange has 
always been 2003.

Outlook on PCs and Entourage on Macs work fine.  OWA on PCs works fine.  
However, when users login to OWA on Macs (And, they can login to it fine...) 
the following two things happen:

1.)  They have to click on everything twice (not a double click but two 
single clicks) for it to open.  If just one click, it will go about 10-15 
minutes and then open, but 2 clicks makes whatever it is open right away.  
(For anything, opening a new mail messages, pulling down a menu, clicking on 
a folder to change the view - anything...)

2.)  Whenever they click on something within a message - opening it, 
replying, forwarding, deleting...it asks them to reauthenticate to the server.

Again, this only happens with Mac users using Safari as the browser.  PC 
user's logging into OWA don't experience any of these problems.

ANy help would be appreciated.  Thank you.

Have you told your Mac users to test Firefox or something instead of Safari?

Regardless, it's a better idea to post your question on the Entourage
newsgroup, where there are many more people who will know what OWA is.

Exchange E-Mail Router Setup Issue
I am following the Chapter 14 Implementation Guide and when I attempt to install the Exchange E-Mail Router I get an error after the Add Server dialog that says the server is invalid or you do not have admin privileges on that server. I installed the CRM as domain admin and am installing the Router as domain admin. The server is valid. Ideas about how I could break this problem down would be greatly appreciated. When you get prompted for the account details you have to enter them as domain\useraccount not just useraccount (even if you are logged into the domain). This worked for me. ...

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...

Account Register Payee/Memo Issues
My bank lists my transactions as either a withdrawal, deposit or transfer. Then there is a subcategory that lists the details of that transaction, if any.

If I go to the advanced register I can see the detailed info MSM has downloaded and put into the memo field, but the issue that I am having is that MSM will not categorize using the memo field, nor can I find a way for MSM to automatically fill in the transaction field from the memo d...

Installing Dynamics GP 9 on Windows XP + SQL Server 2005 Standard

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...

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. ...

Probably a hardware issue, but...

For example, While a mail message is selected in any mail folder, the selected message is "blue". But without warning or any action on my part, the focus will "go away" and the seleceted object becomes "grey". I must them go back and click on that object to make it active again. This also seems to happen when I am in a dialog box of some sort. Even right in the middle of typing, the focus on the dialog box gets lost and I cannot continue typing ...
