I probably have 500 or more users actively connected in cached mode
using Exchange over HTTP at any given time, if not more.  

I have 10mbits of outbound bandwidth, but I've not done any reporting to
find out how much Exchange actually uses for OWA/Exchange over RPC.
Based on total traffic, I'd say I'm using a peak of around 1.0mbps for
the Exchange connections.  On a consistant basis, I think I'm under
1.0meg outbound for Exchange connections only.

Factors effecting that are number of users active, number of e-mails,
size of e-mails, if outlook is left open all the time (small bits of
bandwidth used to update cache) or only opened every X hours (large
chunks of bandwidth used to update cache).

Exchange 2003...sizing remote users via WAN connection.

What is the most amount of simultaneously connected Outlook 2003 (Cached
Mode) users you have over a WAN connection?  And what type connection is
