Outlook over the Internet Authentication

I'm using Outlook over the Internet to retrienve mail from the Exchange Server on my SBS2003 box. I've set it up according to the instructions in the RWW page.

I find that when I launch Outlook, it sits there for 60 seconds and then finally pops up a box asking for my password. It then connects normally.

Is there anything I can do to reduce this delay? And is there a way  I can avoid having to put in my password every time?

On the Exchange Proxy settings tab in Outlook options, there are two check boxes indicating to use HTTP for fast and/or slow connections.  If you leave it only on slow connections only, then it won't use HTTP when you are in the office (local network), only when you are connecting remotely.  It's the "Basic Authentication" that's causing the prompt, but it's a pain (if even possible) to get NLTM authentication to work remotely, so you're pretty much stuck there.  

Any additional delay is either Internet lag or system performance issues (such as an overly large OST file, that's what causes my Outlook to run so slowly).

Ok thanks for that. This is a fixed workstation I have at home. So the 'In the Office' Scenario doesn't apply.

I'm on an ADSL connection. I wasn't sure about which of the Fast/Slow options to have checked. It turns out that I didn't have the 'On fast networks' option checked. I checked this and the delay came down to 5 seconds. Like you say, the NTLM authentication doesn't seem to work. This is a shame because it has a 'Remember Password' option.

So it connects quickly enough now. I just wish there was a way to supress the password dialog.

Thanks for your help.

I didn't think about that.  Having the fast networks option marked means it doesn't attempt a non-http connection first, definitely a time saver (to some extent).
