Microsoft Outlook Access 03 - 403 Forbidden error with Windows

Hoping for help, anything appreciated.

My college runs their email via Microsoft Outlook Web Access, provided by exchange server 2003. I have two computers in the house that run Windows Vista, and one Macintosh. I can log into the email from the Mac but not from the two Windows computers.

When I try to (trying both Premium and Basic log in), the first response is:
The website declined to show this webpage
HTTP 403
Most likely causes:
This website requires you to log in.

A refresh, or subsequent clickings on the same email link without starting a new browser window, result in:
The webpage cannot be found
HTTP 400
Most likely causes:
There might be a typing error in the address.
If you clicked on a link, it may be out of date.

The reason I'm posting this under Vista is because I did hear about compatibility issues where Vista was not letting OWA 03 users "write" emails. It would freeze up/ crash if they tried to do anything but read emails. I think there's a patch for this. However, from what I've read, not being able to log in as I am is a separate issue altogether.

Does anyone know if this is a compatibility issue? Maybe a firewall, although I've checked? I have contacted my school's IT dept, but getting a response back that will actually help me isn't a horse I would bet on.

Thank you!
