Hi,

I had some troubles with this in the past as well.
Turns out you'll have to do some extra things to get it too work. Here
is what I copied from another website:

I've had the same problem, but I solved it this week.
I got to say, its not very good documented at the Microsoft support
site, It's even better to say its not documented. It took me 3 weeks to
solved the problems I've had. But I you know the 2 tricks to it, the
probem is solved.

First you need to create the iisadmpwd directory. After that you need to
change the iisadmpwd Application Pool on this virtual directory to the
ExchangeApplicationPool.

Now here is the trick, when you create the iisadmpwd directory anonymous
access is enabled. This is needed, But the account that is uses for
anonymous access is a local account, withes only exist on you're mail
server. This account does not have the appropriate Active Directory
access. Create a new account, with a very secure password, make sure its
password does not expire, and that it can't change is password. This
account does not need to have any special permission, the group domain
users is enough (well least for my network).
How change the anonymous access account for the virtual directory
iisadmpwd to the newly created account.

And this solves you're problem.
