  • Attachment error with OWA

    Hi All
    since I upgraded my Exchange 2003 (SBS 2003) to SP2 I cannot attach any file with OWA. Everything is working correctly except file attachment. The popup window for attachment selection opens but I receive error "HTTP Error 400: request is badly formed"

    This problem is only with OWA , with microsoft outlook everithing is ok, I can send the mails with attachments, only with OWA I can't

    Everything was working correctly until I upgraded to SP2...
    Can somebody help me ?
    Thank you

    Have you applied the GZIP patch? I think that may help IIRC.
    TIA

        IIS 6 has NOTHING to do with IE6. Google for gzip patch + sbs reveals http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=e...G=Search&meta= and the first on the list:

        Try reading about that and see how you go.

          Hi biggles77
          I downloaded patch 831464 but if I try to install my SBS says that I do not need to install as I already installed Exchange SP2
          My problem with OWA just started when I installed SP2...
          Thank you anyway...
          Any other idea ?

            Do you have Symantec (or other) AntiVirus scanning your Exchange databases? Make sure you have excluded the MDBDATA directories from AV scanning in your software.
            Note: there are other exclusions that should apply, but I won't start that here.
            TIA
