Just a quick thought when you used the administrator name and password did you specify the domain that the admin account belongs to?
Try domain name\user name in the user field then the password in the password field.

Let me first say that I have extensive Internet experience behind me, and have been working with every mail server under the sun over the years. Exchange however, always has come off more complex than it needed to be - but I know that Exchange is an incredible solution. I have limited experience with Exchange 5.5, but I am now installing Exchange 2000 - and I am experiencing some problems. I set up a virtual POP3 and SMTP domain for one of our customers - and I have POP3 and SMTP working properly. I can use Outlook 2K to access my mailbox - and all works beautifully. BUT when I try to access the mail server using the Web Interface, I am having tons of problems. I keep getting access denied, or simply no pages coming up at all. I checked all the IIS settings, and things seem to be pointing to the correct directories according to the Docs I have been reading up on. After installing Exchange 2000 onto my Windows 2000 Server machine, it created a new drive called "M" - and that's what IIS refers to for all the Virtual Directory stuff. One example I can provide is the following: Our server is called "Exchange" - so in the browser, I typed in http://exchange/exchange/ - then it prompts me for a Username and Password - so instinctively, I used the Administrator login and password - and it DOESN'T work. What the heck am I supposed to use, if the Admin login doesn't even work??? This is the first thing that indicated to me, that something is terribly wrong. What things do I need to do or have in place in order to get the Web Access to work? I would love to have some additional docs or resources I can look at, that would walk me through each and every painful step required to get this to work. And troubleshooting processes to - My environment is as follows: I have a Windows 2000 Server Domain Controller so that provides all the Active Directory stuff. Then my Exchange 2000 Server is a standalone server that "belongs" to the domain. It's not setup as a backup controller or anything like that. Any information you can pass along to me, would be greatly appreciated.
