Can I remove the domain from the Forefront TMG web based login?

I have published our Sharepoint intranet to an external domain using Microsoft TMG.

Staff can login at the moment but they need to put the domain name in before their username (i.e. DOMAIN\username)
Is there a way I can remove the need for staff to enter the domain name before their username?

Under IIS > Select The web application you have extented to the web.

    Check "Basic authentication"
    Set default domain
    UnCheck "Basic Authentication"
    Click OK

The authentication should work for both "domain\user" and "user"  

Have a tinker let us know how it  goes.
No you cannot.
The user is not "in" to correct domain,...using a domain member machine,... when they connect to it and try to authenticate, hence Integrated Authentication cannot function.

You can go into the IIS MMC underlying Sharepoint and go to the Basic Authentication Properties and explicitly fill in the "netbios name" version of the domain name as the "Default Domain",...but I am not going to say that this would accomplish anything.
