Domain name not always needed to log into OWA?

This is something I've wondered about for a while.

Why is it that only some of our new Exchange Server installs insist on
the OWA login <up to 13 chars. of domain name>\<user name> while
others have no trouble with only <user name>?

Probably because the ones that don't require a domain name have the
default domain set on the Virtual Directory.

Naming Ranges #4
Hi, When I name a Range on Sheet1, then make a Copy of Sheet1 to say Sheet2, then access the Define Names dialogbox, I can see the named Range listed twice. One is noted as belonging specifically to Sheet2 and the other appears without a sheet reference. When assiging a name to a Range, can I specify that it belongs to a certain sheet? Also, how would I change this code to assign the sheet name aswell?

One domain on exchange server not accepting connections
I setup a second domain on an Exchange 2003 server, and thought everything was working. Now, though, mail going to the second domain gets rejected, but mail going to the original domain is still working. I can telnet to the original domain, but not to the second domain. I've checked everything I know to check (I've setup plenty of domains on Exchange servers, so I believe I've gotten the setting correct), but I just can't get it to work. The MX records are correct, and resolves to the right IP address (the same IP as, so it sh...

HTML Attachment in OWA on Exchange 2000
OWA on our Exchange server is changing html attachments. If the attachment is opened through Outlook 2000 or 2003, there is no problem. If it is opened through OWA, the file is changed. Here is an example of Outlook vs OWA: (copied from someone else's post who asked the same question that wasn't answered) Outlook: <html> <head> <title>Test</title> </head> <body> <FORM action="" method=post> </FORM> <!-- Comment--> </body> </html> --OWA Modified file-- <ME...

OWA Display Settings
Is there a method to clear the Web Access Display Settings (i.e. Color Schemes, Preview Pane setup) from the server side of the application for either a single user or all OWA users? Also, I've had several users report that if they've attempted to access their OWA mailbox in FireFox, they lose the way messages are normally displayed in the OWA client where each message basically has two lines, one line for who it came from and when and the next line for the subject. After logging to OWA with Firefox, all of the information is displayed on a single line. This is on a Windows...

NDR Help
Hi, I hope someone can help on this. A few people have complained they cannot e-mail to us always. They get an NDR. This is very intermittent it seems and not everyone is affected. They have forwarded the NDR they have received. I've attached it below. I can't work out if our mail server has sent that to them or if it is generated by their company e-mail server. This happens mainly with one company but i think it has happened to some others as well - i can't be sure but the one company mainly (or even only). It is odd in that they can e-mail and get through then do it aga...
