Session length
Session time
HI all, Once again i a am here with another one of my questions and hope you can entertain it. I have setup my outlook and exchange to enable my computer to have outlook web access. The complaints that i am getting is that the session ends too quickly and they have to login again thus losing all that they have typed. I have tried searching on the net for a solution. Can someone here point me in the right direction on where to control outlook web access session length? Many thanks :)
