Cant Access Documents - 22.Dec.2006 9:01:18 AM

Hope someone can help with this, its driving me mad.

I am new to exchage but have sucessfully managed to set it up and can send/recieve mail quite happily.  The reson for looking at using Exchange in our organisation is the facility to open document folders over the Invernet.

I have followed the guides on this website to allow document access but it just wont work - i type the path for the share \\exchage1\fileshare for example and i just receive an error "The location that you attempted to access cannot be shown in Outlook Web Access"

Am i doing something obviously wrong? - the location "fileshare" is a folder in the root of the local drive in the machine and is shared with full permissions.

I hope this is easily sorted!

Merry Christmas,

And this respective file server is on the Allow list on the property page of the OWA virtual folder in the Exchange Management Console right?

Hi Henrik,

Thanks for the reply - i had a look at the allowed list on the OWA properties, you were correct - i hadnt addded the local machine into the list.  I have since tried but still seem to be failing.

The full name of the server is exchange1.exchangetest.local , the folder im trying to share is c:\\fileshare.  So, in the OWA allow list i have created a new entry and called it \\exchange1.exchangetest.local\fileshare and when i open OWA and attempt to access the documents i use this same path but still i get the error in OWA.

Thanks in advance for any furhter comments,
