PowerShell Ping Test

Exchange 440 Login Timeout

Posted by gygon on Friday, February 25th, 2011

Had an issue with an old Exchange 2003 server the other day….in the middle of the day users were disconnected in Outlook (using RPC over HTTPS) and when trying to log into the Exchange web page to view mail, users received the error “440 Login Timeout”.

Did the generic solve-all of rebooting the server but that didn’t help…then after looking around I found this article and followed the steps which fixed the problem. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917686

In my case it was step 2 that fixed the problem, updating the folder permissions in IIS. I’m still not sure how/why the permissions changed, especially since it did it in the middle of the day and not while making changes on the server.
