Hi, I adminstrate an exchange server 2003 and would like to know the Active Directory property that shows if OWA is active. I have AD Explorer but I haven't been able to find it. I want this because my colleague is creating extranet profiles and wants to show owa link for those who have it active.

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

OWA is on by default for all exchange users unless for some reason you used an AD default profile in creation with OWA off. If not, then it is on for all. You can verifiy this in the properties of a user on the “Exchange Features” tab.

    I already know this, but everytime we create a mailbox we disable OWA access, just by bandwidth reasons (Outlook client consumes less resources I believe) and because not every user has a mobility profile. So I guess it must be tricky but OWA enabled state property should be somewhere.

    The AD attribute you want is called protocolSettings and the attribute is in a strange format protocol1§setting1§protocol2§setting2... where protocol can be replaced with HTTP, IMAP, POP3 etc and the setting can be 1=enabled, 2=disabled the strange character is delimiting the entries is ALT-0167. If the protocol isnt listed, then it is enabled. HTTP§0 would be HTTP access is disabled., everything else enabled.
