OWA - message field not accessable

When using OWA - cannot type in any portion of the message 
field. Applies to both new messages and reply to received 
messages.  Small 'button' with "X" in upper left corner 
seems to provide no function.  Left click non functional- 
right click pulldown menu provides some functions but 
nothing relevant to problem.

Subject field DOES accept characters OK & is only means to 
send memos at present.

Solutions or ideas welcome.  Thanks

Try posting this to an Exchange group as Outlook Web Access is a function of 
Exchange, not Outlook.

How can I update a field in another table when using forms?
I have a form that user inputs a protocol number into. This form is called "Protocol_Index". When the user first inputs this protocol number, right after they have to to another form, which they easily do by pressing a button that takes them there.

What happens is when they are searching for a record based on a protocol number in the "Protocol_Index" form they simply press a button to take them to the "Couple_Index" fo...

Publisher Mail Merge with Access
Trying to merge a publisher document with access. When I go to select my data source in access, the query that I want to merge with is not availble as a selection.

We are going to be adding a second smtp domain to our exchange enviroment, are users will be split one half having abc.com as their primary (reply to address) and the other half having xyz.com as their primary (reply to address). Given that our exchange enviroment is originally installed under abc.com, will there be any issues with the users' whose primary smtp address is xyz.com accessing owa and using active sync? I have read someone that exchange has problems matching primary smtp addresses that don't match the exchange virtual directory default when using owa or active sync?...

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...

Read-only fields based on security role
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. Thanks. There is no easy onload script for this, but you could write javascript that calls a web service wh...

re: slow OWA
HI, I'm having problems with an exchange 2003 server standard edition running webmail and only webmail. This is the only server and is the domain controller aswell running windows 2003 server.

How can I access files in 'Personal Folders'?
Question for knowledgeable outlook folks: If I accidentally drag an email into the 'Personal Folders' node on the file tree--not into a subfolder but into Personal Folders it self-- how do I get the email?

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. ...
