When I restrict a user to logon to a specific PC (using the user account setting in AD - Account > log on to) it's affecting Outlook Web Access when the user tries to access his/her mailbox remotely and from their mobile devices. If I set it to log on to "All Computers" everything works well. Is there a work-around for this?

I am running Windows Server 2003 SP2 for AD and Exchange Server 2003.

Add the OWA server itself to the user's "Log On To" list and see how things work. It's surprising me a bit that the restriction would apply in the case of a non-interactive logon but it's worth a shot.

This is correct. The user needs the Exchange server added to the list of computers they are allowed to log on to in order for them to use OWA. – joeqwerty Aug 16 '11 at 0:42
