    Day X at 1300 hrs, I am able to access my ANG email via OWA. Then I go get a new CAC, because we got issued shitty tablets that doesnt want to read my CAC, and cant log on without it. Same day, 1400 hours, I can no longer log into ANG OWA webmail.

    This was 2 weeks ago. My ANG comm just told me "I think OWA has been down for about a week now."
    My AD base Comm said "sorry, this isn't an AD issue, we cant really elevate it".

    So... I did PKI recovery, downloaded my previous ANG email certs, imported them into IE... but whenver I log into ANG OWA, the box pops up to load a certificate and is ONLY reading the ones on my smart card.

    Sigh... nothing's worked.
    Active Duty webmail loads fine, but impossible to get past the 500 error for guard webmail. I think I've exhausted my resources at this point. Definitely has something to do with my new CAC.

    I got a 'us.af.mil' account I guess when I got to AMS, but when I got to my guard unit, I got a separate @ang.af.mil.

    I thought they used to all direct to same inbox, but as soon as I PCS'd to current AD base, I found out they are now acting as independent mailboxes.

    Herk - I've seen those directions, I'll try it. Do you know any way to get that private key back on to the CAC? Or do you have to lug it around with you and load it on every computer you want to use?

    Thanks all

    Webmail / CAC
    I got my previous CAC at my guard unit.. then PCSd... CAC was getting unreliable, so I got a new one here at an active duty base.
    Now I can't log into the guard webmail (mail3.ang.af.mil/owa), keeps saying internal 500 error. The email address on my cert changed back to ###@us.af.mil. I used RAPIDs online self service to change it back to my guard email, but no luck.

    Anyone have prior experience with getting a new CAC while on an Active Duty installation? Somethin aint right with mine.

    No expert but id say so. Job seeking expenses or expenses required to maintain proficiency in your profession.. That's how I would justify it. Or something like that

    Just did taxes in both turbo tax and free H&R Block online from Mil onesource.. was having a discrepancy in my federal refund between the two. I am Civ employed + Guard. On my form 2606, turbotax takes the exact amount of deductions and puts it in 1040 line 24. H&R block, with the same values on form 2606, puts in a value 10% less on form 1040 line 24.

    Still investigating, but I have no idea wtf HR block is coming up with that number. With Turbo tax, i've traced all the calculations and they are legit.

    edit - the form 2606 is for non-reimbursed job related expenses. i.e., for being in the guard, travel costs related to commuting > 100 miles to perform duty. Includes airfare, lodging, parking, meals (@ 50%), etc.

    Wrong thread.

    Regardless, all you need the recruiter to do is sign the paperwork and send it up. Also, its typically the recruiter that fills out the assessment of you after the O-6 interview.
