Maybe somebody can inform me on possible security issues concerning the use of OWA in for example an Internet Cafe. Apart from keyloggers etc., are there any common known risks when using OWA on a 'foreign' machine? Is there any MS-article on this subject?

thnx for helping, cheers, BS

The same risks as using any other web based application.
Make sure that you are using SSL, and enforce SSL on the users. If you are concerned enough, don't even give them a redirect from the http to the https version.

If you are really paranoid, then use some kind of one time authentication key device.

Microsoft have an entire section in their technical information on security.
