Hello All,
  A co-worker, the current Exchange admin, has stated that when the OWA client 
is used on our LAN that it establishes a connection directly to the mailbox 
store (as does Outlook) as well as to the front end server, and therefore the 
OWA should not be used as mail client on our LAN.  When I use NETSTAT and 
Exchange System Manager's log in's for mailbox store, I can not see this taking 
place.  It appears that when using the OWA mail client on the LAN,  the front 
end server brokers access to the mail store on your behalf, and no other 
connection is made to the mailbox store.
  We are running Exchange 2003/Windows Server 2003.  We have a front end server 
(OWA server) and back end server with mail stores.
  As a newbie Exchange person, your seasoned observations and comments are 
Thanks, Robert
