Outlook Web Access Strange Behavior

I am trying to use Outlook Web Access to get to my e-mail. It is an Exchange 2000 server running Windows 2000 server and uses Active Directory. Everything works perfectly fine when I access OWA from within my local domain. However, from any machine external to the domain it behaves consistently erratic. I can list the inbox messages but when I try to read a message I get an HTTP 400 (Bad Request) error. I can list the public folders, however only half I can open and read while the other half get the same HTTP 400 (Bad Request) error. The symptoms are the same with either IE or Netscape browsers.

Several issues may be at hand here:
1. If this is a high triffic domain, then your IIS may be overloading.  This typically would occur when there are excess of 1000 page requests per second on a single IIS machine, OR if the IIS server is being accessed across a slow connection, again with the page requests exceeding the bandwidth of the connection.
2. Ensure that you are using IE 5+.  I would reccomend using the bewest version IE to ensure that the latest bugs have been fixed (unless there are new bugs in the newer version... we all know how that goes ;)).
3. If your company is using ISA (Internet Security and Acceleration server) then check with your IS department to make sure they are allowing the proper traffic for OWA.
4. I think i wanted to make another point here, but since it's 2:30am local, I'm not in the best state of mind.  Maybe it'll come back to me while I'm asleep.

Hope this helps some!

I have a T1 connection and very few users at this point (1 or 2) so that shouldn't be an issue.
I am using both the latest versions of IE and Netscape (both act the same).
We aren't using ISA.
Thanks for trying to help though.
