Windows Sharepoint Services 3, Outlook Web Access, and RPC over HTTP on the same website

Exchange 2000


  • 1. OWA + Multiple Logins for one user problem
    I have one user that can login to the OWA but as soon as they click on a folder or double click on an item in the inbox it will prompt for the username and password again. Regardless what folder, addressbook, calendar, etc... It just keeps asking for the username/password.... This problem occurs wether they login using premium or basic or priviate or public computer. All of my other users do not experience this problem. How do i resolve this?
  • 2. Recipient Policies in Ex 2007
    I used to be able to create recipient policies in Exchange 2003 without any problems. For example, I had a rule that any spam email older than two weeks would be deleted. I had another to remove emails that were larger than a certain size and older than X number of days. How the heck do I do this on Ex 2007? This was a pretty simple thing to do on 2003. Why did it have to get so complicated?
  • 3. How to clean the message queue
    I have over 26,000 megaes in the queue. Most likely spam or NDR,s, not sure. They have <> at the far left. Not sure where they are coming from but would like to delete all of them and not have to delete them 1-1000 at a time. Is there a command that does this. I am running exchange 2007 sp1.
  • 4. Missing users in GAL? (EXCH2000)
    Hi, We're using Exchange 2000 here at work and yours truly gets to administer it. Having an issue where some users are not appearing under their respective Address lists. In other words, in System Manager, under Recipients -> All Address Lists -> My Sites, I have different lists broken out by site. As I understand it, these lists are built off LDAP queries to AD, particularly "Build this address list by using the members of this Distribution Group in Active Directory". My problem is I have some lists where users aren't showing up, some users that show up but shouldn't (ie. they aren't part of the San Diego group in AD anymore, they are in the LA group but still show in the San Diego address list), etc. It's almost like Exchange is either not talking to AD correctly or the database is horked. Is that right? So, my question I need to rebuild the RUS for the domain? Or is this more of a ESEUTIL/ISINTEG thing? Any ideas? I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!
  • 5. Outlook Anywhere Per-User
    Can Outlook Anywhere be enabled/disabled on a per-user basis the way OWA can? Any help on this is much appreciated. Thanks

Windows Sharepoint Services 3, Outlook Web Access, and RPC over HTTP on the same website

Postby Paul Rinear » Fri, 14 Sep 2007 05:58:16 GMT

Installation of Windows Sharepoint Services version 3 on the same
website as OWA 2003 breaks OWA. It also breaks RPC over HTTP Exchange
capability. Microsoft has not documented a solution, although there
are people struggling with it, and they usually do a workaround by
putting it on a different website, but if you only have one IP and
want to use SSL, you are stuck.

Very simply, you have to create web applications on the affected
virtual directories in IIS so that the Configuration button becomes
available, then click it and remove the .NET executable in the
wildcard handler box. Apparently installing WSS3 forces all virtual
directories to inherit this setting, and the .NET executable has no
idea how to handle the verbs it gets for these special services. I had
to remove it from Exchange, Exchweb, Public, and Rpc virtual

Well, honestly, I would never mix those apps anyway.

1.Exchange Outlook Web Access & Windows SharePoint Services


Is it possible to install Windows SharePoint Services on the same server as
Exchange 2003, with Outlook Web Access enabled. All I can find is that it
can't be done, but these are all topics about SharePoint Portal
server/SharePoint Team Services.
Since Small Business Server 2003 installs (among others) both products on
the same server it should be possible. Doe anyone know how to do this?

Best regards,

2.Windows Sharepoint Services vs Outlook Web Access Deathmatch

Greetings wise WSS users,

perhaps someone could help out a baffled beat-up Exchange administrator....

I have a single Windows 2003 Standard edition server, DC, GC, ABC, ETC, 
running Exchange 2003 with SP1 and Outlook Web Access with Forms Based 
Authentication. The server also runs Microsoft Virtual Server 2005. I have 
little IIS expertise but I will try and describe my configuration to you.
I have a site on port 443 which contains a basic web page, I have the 
exchange virtual directories for outlook web access (exchange, exchweb, 
public, etc), and have recently installed Windows Sharepoint Services with 
SP1, creating a virtual directory called SPS (probably should have called it 
WSS to avoid confusion, but I digress) Not that I can actually see the damn 
thing in IIS Manager -Is it actaully a Virtual Directory?
I have another site running on port 1024 which is used for the interface to 
Virtual Server 2005.
And of course I have another site called SharePoint Central Administration 
on port 6202.

When I installed WSS, I 'upgraded' the Default Web Site which seems to have 
killed both OWA and the Virtual Server 2005 administration site.
I followed (and quadruple checked) the instructions in KB823265 and KB832769 
(configure sharepoint services to use Kerberos, and configure sharepoint 
services to exclude the exchange directories)

When I attempt to access OWA I get '440 login timed out'
When I attempt to access Virtual Server 2005 I get a nice interface from VS 
2005 teling me it: Could not connect. Access was Denied blah blah.
Both of these seem to point to some sort of Evil which may have been 
installed with WSS. No actually I think it's pointing to some Kerberos 

I have tried resetting the IUSR_ and IWAM_ passwords to no avail.

Can someone please please help me as this is very frustrating.

Thank you in advance for any information you may be able to provide

5.Outlook Web access error HTTP/1.1 503 Service Unavailable

hi guys, heres my situation.

We have 2 exchange server. Exchange A the original one and we
added a new one for our VPN clients ExchangeB. Problem is user with
mail boxes on Exchange B can not access their mailboxes from Exchange
A thru //exchangeA/exchagne. Bigger problem is by using //exchangeB/
exchange i can access mailboxes on exchange A but can not access
mailboxes on exhange B the local server. Havnt yet tested from
cause i think it should work internally first. Now i made Exchange B
as the front end server as i could not make Exchange A the front end
server cause of Reciepent Update Services running on it.
Wht am I missing here ppl.. is there a virtual directory i need to
make on Exchange A so it will relay to Exchange B. which i do not
think is problem cause if relays fine for mailboxes on B from A...
is it an IIS issue ??
Please help me .. clients are getting impatient
Thanks in advance,

Return to Exchange 2000
