Somebody / something has changed the permissions on the OWA website.

Subject: [exchangelist] Multiple Password popups to get into outlook OWA

Hi all, 

I am running Exchange server 2003 Enterprise and using outlook OWA.
Recently when a user logs into OWA it takes 5 password attempts to log
them into their mailbox. The strange thing is we have a 3 attempt
failure lockout policy. It will not lock out the user and on the fifth
attempt it will get them into outlook no problem. If you put in the
incorrect password 3x it will lock you out. Has anyone seen this before?

Let me know if you need more info.
