You are referring to the Outlook 2003 issue described in KB 830355.

That is not what the author is referring to. He's talking about OWA. He
probably needs KB 830827 (just the section titled "Setting up a logon
page" -- the piece where it says "set the default domain to '\'" is the
important part of this -- KB 267906 is probably more explicit and easier
to use although written for Exchange 2000).

There is a known bug in XP. This problem is fixed with SP2. If you
install SP2 you can use the UPN format login. If you don't like SP2, you
have to contact MS product support to get the patch to resolve this
issue. I don't remember the KB article number, but search in Kbase you
will find it.

Subject: [exchangelist] Logging into OWA with UPN email address and

Hi,

Running Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003, and I am have some questions
about the "correct" way to log into OWA.

Currently on our Exchange server, for users who want to use OWA, they
can log into the usual OWA URL like this on our exchange server:

http://mail.whatever.com/exchange

and they get a password prompt with three fields: User Name, Password,
and Domain.  They can log in by specifying the pre-Exchange 2003 user
name (i.e. without the @theirdomainname.com), the password, and the "NT
Domain"
name of the Exchange server, which I was able to figure out by trial and
error but I am not sure about it.  Anyway, users can log into OWA.

I would like to set it up so users log into OWA by specifying their UPN
email address (username@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) and their password, without
the need to specify the third parameter, the "NT Domain" (since that is
easily forgotten and also I don't like to expose it if I can help it.

So ... is it possible to log into OWA by just specifying the email
address and password?  If the NT Domain has to be specified, exactly how
do I figure out what it is? (The value that works on my Exchange does
not match anything that is printed out by "ipconfig").

best regards
Mike
