    I'm mangaing a client's server group and I think I've narrowed down their OWA
    problems down a bit more. The SBS server is SBS 2000 premium, and the other
    servers are just terminal or file servers.

    OWA works for some people, but not others. This isn't an account issue
    either, because users it does work for can't always access OWA from multiple

    From what I can tell, most SBS PCs seems to fail to access OWA. Even the
    SBS server itself won't get into OWA, regardles of the account. I'm not
    entirely sure but I believe the machines that can get into OWA (if there are
    any) are older. I've been mostly testing this with XP (sp2) and windows
    2000. The catch is that this only occurs from within IE. I use Firefox as
    well and have not had any issues. However, the clients use IE to access OWA.

    From non-sbs computers/servers/domain controllers I seem to be able to
    access OWA fine and I have tried using the exact same IE configuration from a
    computer that can access OWA. This problem occurs externally as well as

    The actual issue I have is that when I go to the OWA page it begins to load
    when I enter the credentials but then it requests credentials several more
    times before saying "login failed or cancelled". The OWA page almost loads.
    I get the menu on the left and the toolbar in the main panel, but where the
    inbox mail should be displayed all I get is "loading..."

    I was looking at http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=280823 but I don't think
    these situations apply.

    If you think you can help me please take this on...

    Thanks for the reply, but I thought I had already mentioned this:

    This problem seems to occur within the local network and remotely as well.
    I'm at home using an xp machine that can connect fine, yet at work I can't
    get in using any SBS machine (this company SBS network is seperate from the
    network I'm trying to troubleshoot)
