How to disable OWA for specific user in Exch 5.5

Hello, I would like to disable a particular user's Outlook Web Access (OWA). I went into the User's Account and checked the "Account Disable" box. However, it appears that if the user had a successful OWA logon previously, disabling the account would not have any effect. Whereas, if the attempt is being done on a different machine, the decline of access works fine. Similar situation if I were to restrict logon time or set end date to the account. I also tried to mistype the password in hope of locking out the account, but that's only a very temporary solution which will reset itself at some point. We're running Exchange 5.5 on Windows NT 4.0. Is there any way to disable the OWA for a single user and/or lockout a particular account permanently? Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In order for user to have OWA access they must be member of Account Operators. If you remove them from group they should lose ability to access their OWA account.

    Unfortunately, the system is setup to allow access to many different groups. Since we only have a small number of users, I bite the bullet and created another group with all the user accounts that should have OWA access, then removed the group that contained all accounts. It's a longer route than I would like, but at least it took care of the problem. Thanks!

    My above solution worked until the user restarted their system. Then they received a logon credentials incorrect message. Just wanted to check if OWA is defined via User Manager: Policies|User Rights|"Log on locally". Thanks!
