I have users that access their e-mail VIA OWA. Recently it has been brought to my attention that when they logout of OWA using the log out button it does not actually log them out. If they browse to a different site and then go back to OWA it will not prompt them to login. It looks like it is using some type of cached credentials.

If you are using http or https without forms based authentication then the session will remain active unless you close the web browser.

The way round that is to use HTTPS and forms based authentication, which uses cookie control of the authentication session and when you logout the cookie is cleared.
