Hello,

I have OWA up and running, and set to use UPN for logon. On the logon screen, I would like to change the label from Principal Name to Email Address because no one know what their UPN is since they donít know what it means.

I know on 2003 you could customize the labels, but I donít see a way to do it with the theme's based system there is now. Hopefully, I am overlooking the obvious.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

The msexchange team have a good article on creating themes in Outlook Web Access 2007 at http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2006/08/30/428793.aspx
 
There's also a file you can edit in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\Owa\auth" called logon.aspx. If you know your html you can add or remove rows from the table. I'm not quite sure where some of the content comes from to populate some of the table cells so make a backup copy first and be careful with your changes.
 
It's probably not quite what you're looking for but it's the best I've managed to find so far.

Answer:
Make a backup copy of all files before you make changes!
 
On your CAS, browse to "c:\program files\microsoft\exchange server\clientaccess\owa\auth" and edit logon.aspx
 
Go to line 222 and edit it as follows:
 
Original Text
<td nowrap><label for="username"><%=UserNameLabel%></label></td>
 
New Text

<td nowrap><label for="username">E-Mail Address:</label></td>

 
Note that this file will likely be overwritten by Service Packs and/or Hotfixes.
 
Good luck!
