Replied in m.p.exchange.misc - if you need to post to multiple groups, it's
best to do so all at once in a single message (separate the NG names with
commas) so that everyone can follow the thread. Thanks :-)

1. OWA and Firewall

We have OWA running on IIS 5 SP2 outside the firewall and connecting to
Ex5.5 servers inside the firewall.  Does anyone know how to speed up the
authentication process through the firewall?  Connects to the OWA server are
quick, but once we put in our userid and password we may have to wait up to
2 mins before the inbox is displayed.

Any ideas on how to speed this up?
