What happened to the change password option in Outlook Web App Login Page for Exchange 2010?

    Question

  • I'm currently implementing OWA Exchange 2010, and I have found that you cannot change your password on the login page, where as OWA for Exchange 2007 allowed this. Is there some configuration to light up this feature, or is the only way to change your password through OWA is to first sign in then proceed into the options section? Being able to change the password on the login page was helpful for users whose password's have expired. This would be a real step backwards if we cannot do this in OWA Exchange 2010. If anyone knows the answer whether or not this can be done please let me know. If it can be done, how?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Do you use ISA server to publish OWA 2007?

    If you have an ISA server, you can do it.

    You can follow:

    http://blogs.technet.com/sooraj-sec/archive/2009/12/20/password-change-with-isa-server-2006.aspx

    But for OWA 2010, the Technet article didn't list the integration with ISA server.

    Configuring the Change Password Feature in Outlook Web App

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb684904.aspx

    "Outlook Web App provides the functionality to change passwords that haven't expired yet. However, if a password has already expired or is required to be changed at the first sign-in, the password can't be changed via Outlook Web App."

  • On the sign in page if you use ISA server as a reverse proxy you can have an option to change password after sign in.

  • Yes we've been running ISA 2006 as a reverse proxy in front of Exchange 2007. I'm in the process of migrating to TMG 2010 Exchange 2010, and am looking to see how to do this with these new versions.

  • Okay, I didn't see any mention of ISA in the original post.
