I've just inherited a five+ year old network from a consultant and I'm
having a bit of trouble working through all the bugs and am looking for a
little help please.
One of the first things I noticed was that users with expired passwords
could not log on to web mailat all so I enable the funtionality that should
allow them to do this, however...
While users can now change their passwords once they've logged into owa they
are still unable to do so if their password has already expired.
They are however prompted to change their password. The IIS page that comes
up however lacks a field to input the domain and without it they get and
"object required" error.
If however theu sign in with their email address instead of just their
username they recieve "Error number: -2147023570"
I am running Exchange 2003 FE & BE on server 2003. Both are fully up to date
and both are 32 bit windows.
Thanks in advance for any help

See following kb's for troubleshooting this issue:
Troubleshoot problems with the Password Change pages that are included in IIS
Error message when you try to use Outlook Web Access in Exchange 2007 to change an expired domain password: "Error: Object required"
If above kb's does not help then apply hotfix Q833734. This includes new ASP pages for the iisadmpwd folder and iispwchg.dll. You need to copy these files into the iisadmpwd folder and then register iispwchg.dll, then do an iisreset.

I hadn't noticed before that even if you have SP2 installed already you may still have to register the .dll. Found this little side note on my 10th reading of this...
"Note The files from this hotfix are included in Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1). This hotfix package automatically registers Iispwchg.dll. However, you must manually register this DLL if you install Windows Server 2003 SP1. For
more information, see the "More Information" section."
I had just kept assuming that since I have SP2 this hotfix would not be able to solve my problem.
I'm on Exchange 2003 so I don't think it can be the 2007 issue, but thanks all the same.
Hope this works. it's be driving me insane.

Special tip everbody!
Even if you have the service pack installed you may still have to register the dll
(long string of curse words!)
