Hi
I have installed Exchange server 2000 in our company's network.I access exchange via OWA,everything is fine except the change password option.When i click change password in options,the browser shows "page can not be displayed" and asks for settings for SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0. I have enabled the same & made the browser security to LOW but stil it din't work for me. If any one has idea please let me know ?.
2. Is there any option that we can change password for a mail box at client side using outlook. Like option available for windows login i.e. "user must change password at first logon"

Regards
Yakoob

Hi Yakoob,

Regarding your first question, have you implemented SSL using your own Certificate Authority ? Could you tell me the exact error message you get (maybe post a screendump) ?

Second question, no unfortunately it's not possible to change your password via your Outlook MAPI client.

Ok that's the reason then, per standard SSL is required in order to change your password, and I advise against changing this behaviour, as it would be quite a security hole.

Yes that article will work for you, but have in mind, it describes how to install a 3rd party SSL (Verisign, Thawte etc.). If you're planning to use your own CA, check out Securing OWA using your own Certificate under below link:
