CDO problem: anonymous access to public folder running ASP from Netscape users

Post by Siegfried Weber [MVP Exchange » Wed, 16 Feb 2000 04:00:00

Check your IIS settings. It seems that you haven't enabled IIS anonymous
access for this ASP application. It can be found on the properties of the
virtual directory.

When I try to do an anonymous loging (as in the anonymous logon example in
the AppFarm), I get the following error:

Active Messaging error '8004010f'

The client operation failed. [Microsoft Exchange Server Information Store -

/anonymous/anonfldr.asp, line 40

I have done all the the things the anonymous logon readme suggested to make
this work:
1. Installed exchange server 5.0 on the same machine as the web server
2. gave both read and execute permissions to the anonymous folder in IIS
3. Published the folder in the HTTP item of the protocols section for the
