I assume you are using OUTLOOK WEB ACCESS and not some VPN solution...
OWA is not the fastest but it works well... However you will be limited
to the speed of your physical link... Hit the Boss for more bandwidth!!!
Nows your chance!!! However be careful not to over sell... The rate may
be limited by his cellular connection...  What is the current link rated
at? how many users/services are you running on it? We were running 500+
users (HTTP) on a 128K link as well as two mailservers OWA etc etc it
made a great difference when we went to a 2 MB link... now the
limitation is the external links... Physics is physics!!! Have a good

Subject: Is there a way to speed up document downloads with Outlook 2002

My boss is trying to download over a cellular internet connection and it
goes so slow when he tries to save something in Outlook - but he
connects to AOL and it is downloaded in 3 minutes - is there something I
should know about the Exchange server that could help to speed up
downloads or is this a case of bandwidth - AOL can provide lots of speed
and I am limited to what my connection has.
