  • Assuming you have permissions:

    Simply open the other's user mailbox from OWA:






    To open the mailbox with the SMTP address tsmith@fourthcoffee.com, use the following URL:

    https://<server name>/owa/tsmith@fourthcoffee.com

  • Try using a browser without passtrough authentication (like chrome or firefox) it should force the user to login and he/she can use the alternate credentials.


    You could also try shutting down the web client service (net stop webclient) if you must use IE. That is the service that will provide websites the passtrough credentials.

  • Try running the browser as another user.

    For IE, hold down shift and right click the IE icon and select, 'run as different user' and enter the other credentials.

    You can then go to OWA and it will login as the new, different user.

    Hope this helps.
