I heard there is a way to it so you could customize your login with a different box than comes up right now in OWA. You can have right on a web page where the user can put in there user name and password then a button to login, not like now with a pop up that prompts for a user name, password and domain. I hope I explained it ok. Does anyone have incstructions or a html document I could download? Thanks

Hello Alessan,

You can at least make a login page where the users can type their username in a field, but unfortunately you won't get rid of the validation box.

See:

Not here, but try to browse your way to it by choosing Articles & Tutorials in left site of this page, then Topic -> Exchange 2000.

the login page in that tutorial serves no purpose whatsoever!

you can setup form based authentication for owa 2000 as shown below. only works on ie6 on windows though. if another browser/os is detected the user will get the standard browser dialog.

code:
  
<html>
<head>
<title>Microsoft Outlook Web Access</title>
<script language=javascript1.2>

var installation="/exchange"; //change to path/url of your owa installtion if necessary

var win=0;
var ie6=0;
if(navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf('win')!=-1){win=1;}
if(navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf('msie 6')!=-1){ie6=1;}
if(navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf('opera')!=-1){ie6=0;}
if(!(win&ie6)){window.location.href=installation;}

function owalogin() {
switch(document.login.name.value){
case "":
alert("Please enter your username.");
document.login.name.focus();
break;
default:
switch(document.login.pass.value){
case "":
alert("Please enter your password.");
document.login.pass.focus();
break;
default:
var owa=new ActiveXObject("msxml2.xmlhttp")
owa.open("get",installation,false,login.name.value ,login.pass.value )
owa.send()
switch(owa.status){
case 200:
window.location.href=installation;
break;
case 401:
alert("Login attempt failed. Please check your username / password and try again.");
document.login.reset();
document.login.name.focus();
break;
default:
alert("Sorry, the server did not respond as expected. Please try again later or contact your system administrator.");
document.login.reset();
document.login.name.focus();
break;
}
}
}
}

</script>
</head>
<body onload="document.login.name.focus();">
<form name=login action="javascript:owalogin();" method=post>
<table>
<tr>
<td><b>Username</b></td>
<td><input name="name" size="22" maxlength="127" /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><b>Password</b></td>
<td><input type="password" name="pass" size="22" maxlength="127" /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td /><td><input type="submit" name="okbutton" value="OK" /></td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>
</body>
</html>

very minimal but ripe for customisation

few notes-

1) save using any filename/extension you like
2) requires basic authentication on exchange virtual directory
3) if you set the default domain under basic authentication on the exchweb\bin folder, users can login specifying just their username instead of domain\username
4) works with ssl. best to require encryption for this form also.

Alessan, you may want to reference this older thread where some of us posted problems/issues and solutions re: this login page.
