Outlook web access without ActiveX in IE6

Outlook web access without ActiveX in IE6

Does anyone know how to configure IE6 so it will work without ActiveX for

We have consultants on a customer site where they have to use IE6 but
ActiveX is blocked so OWA won't work. Apparently IE4 did work (but didn't
have all that nice SP2 functionality).




1. Zone Alarm Pro and Outlook Web Access thru IE6

I use IE6 from home to access Outlook Web Web Access on my server at
work. I recently installed Zone Alarm Pro and now cannot access OWA
using IE (See error message below). The free Zone Alarm worked fine.
Here's what's weird: I can access OWA through Netscape or the bundled
browser that comes with AOL. It's only IE that's the problem. And IE
works fine when I turn Zone Alarm off. I've messed with the security
settings in IE Advance Options (SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0.
settings (I don't have PCT)) to no avail. I've also shared my domain
at work and DNS server in my ZA Trusted Zone but it still doesn't

The guy who administers our network says  I need to open "Port 8080
under a proxy" but he doesn't know anything about ZA so doesn't know
how to do this under ZA. (I've tried to add this port to the incoming
and outgoing UDP and TCP ports but that doesn't fix it).

There has to be a simple solution, right?

Here's the IE error message I get:
