Outlook Web Access problem with Win7 + IE8
Strange problem, the entire IT team has been tearing it's collective hair out for a few weeks now.
In a nutshell; Win 7 PCs using IE8 to access exchange 2007 webmail within the school. Many (most, really) users find that every time they hit reply, or new message, when the new window opens they're presented with the OWA login screen and have to re-input their credentials. This is not a timeout issue as it happens even immediately after first login.
Now, this does not happen to every user, we've even created new users with the same security levels as the users experiencing the problems and we can't re-create the problem. None of us who have admin rights experience the problem either.
It only happens on Win 7 machines, on XP everything is fine.
I've tried everything to a) recreate the fault with a user who doesn't get it and b) vice-versa, to cure the problem for those who do get it. To quote Catweazle - Nothing Works!
We've tried changing all sorts of settings within IE, we've completely rebuilt a Win 7 machine, we've cleared out all user profiles, etc, etc, etc
Does anyone have knowledge to share, or any ideas I can try before I go totally bald?
