This article applies to:

Exchange 2007
Exchange 2010


PROBLEM  

When you try to access Outlook Web Access, you receive the following error:


Server Error
403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.


SOLUTION 

In Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 Outlook Web Access (OWA) uses HTTP Secured (HTTPS) by default and therefore when you type the URL you must type https://server.domain.com/owa instead of http://server.domain.com/owa

You can also configure your server to automatically redirect http request to OWA web site as https requests.
