Hey everyone, I would like to access OWA to any of our domains, is this possible.It works fine to our main domain, but how do we access the other domains from OWA. Email is setup on all our domains and we receive to all internally and externally. I appreciate any feedback "[Confused]"

When it asks for authentication, should it not work by using DOMAIN_A\Username and DOMAIN_B\Username?

You would think it would, but it says access denied. I have granted access in
Exchanged advance
Mailbox rights
then added each domain A account to domain B account. This works well to setup outlook internally, so we are able to get to all domains email on individual basis. What is the format to use as address for OWA. We are using smtp.companyname.com/exchange It then prompts for username and password. I enter the username password and domain. It only works with main logon account.

Are you by any chance hosting multiple email domains and assign each user only email addresses with their respective domain name? If you host e.g. domainA.com and domainB.com where domainA is the default recipient policy, then users with *only* domainB addresses will not be able to use OWA! To allow them access to OWA you can either create a new OWA site with the ESM snap-in hosting mailboxes for domainB, or, assign a single domainA address for those users (e.g. loginname@domainA.com).

Hello Johan, I have the ESM snap-in installed and cannot find any option that has OWA listed.
Can you tell me how to create this OWA site or send me a link on how to do it.All i have is default smtp virtual server. Is this why we are not able to get into anything but our main domain.It does give me the option to create new one but does not like me using the same address as default. Can we create a vitual for each additional domain and use the same address as default.What other steps would we have to do?

You don't need to create multiple SMTP virtual servers. If your existing setup enables you to receive email to several domains, than that's fine! Leave it there.

Creating a new OWA site is done in the ESM under Servers->Your server->Protocols->HTTP. Right-click and choose New HTTP Virtual Server. The rest should be easy to grasp. But before you do that, just check to see if it really is the case I described. Take any user account with which you can't access OWA and just add any email address with the default domain name. Give the server time to replicate any needed changes and then try to access OWA with that account. If it works then creating separate OWA sites for each domain will work, or just add any default domain address for the users affected (easily done by updating the recipient policy).

Good luck!
