We have the following configuration:
Front-End/Back-End Setup 
Exchange 2003 SP1 Active/Passive Cluster for the BackEnd attached to DELL/EMC 
Single Exchange 2003 SP1 Front-End
ISA 2004 Enterprise Edition Array (3-Leg template)
We use basic authentication which isn't secure but we compensate with SSL. I'm 
still torn whether i should turn FBA on. It's just 2 checkboxes.
I don't like the cookie aspect, but I like the fact that you authenticate at 
the firewall and not at the mail servers.

Subject: Soka|OWA 2003 & authentication

  Is anyone using OWA 2003 over the web without forms based authentication?   
If so, which HTTP authentication method are using with OWA?  

  It seems that if you use a FE server (because you have multiple BE servers), 
then you have to use FBA.  

Thanks, Robert
