Dear experts, could you please help me out?
Enviroment: Exchange 2010

I disabled the webmail feature and even the AD and Exchange Accounts for one Test user which had open a seccion of webmail and the testuser was able to send emails until the session was closed.
What shell command or utility should I run to force authentication on the account that I just made changes on?
How would I be able to prevent this from happening?

Hi,

I am not sure how to set the OWA connections to detect activity but I would recommend to start of with a timeout setting, i.e. to not keep connections open for too long.

Hi,

Interesting microsoft tool you may be able to use.

As for the account settings propogation I am not sure how to force it, but in theory a refresh of browser or new login should enforce it. I found this option but please readup more on this as I am not 100% sure about this.

GPUPDATE /FORCE, and also make sure that the AD REPLICATION takes place for updating the all available DCs

As for security in general I think there are a lot of options with ISA to secure the connection settings, encryption ssl and so forth maybe some of the other experts has more detailed advise.
