[Exchange 2010] Why takes visiting webmail a long time?


I have configured an Exchange 2010 server with OWA. When I visit the URL (https://mail.boerendans.nl), it takes 20 seconds when the login page is available. I think that can be faster.

Hardeware of the server: 2,8 Ghz with 4 GB memory.

I think its not a performance issue.

There are 7 users active on the Exchange 2010 server. They check their mail about 2 times a day. The Exchange 2010 is a very basic installation (no unified communication etc.)

Locally (https://localhost/owa) on the server, it works fine.

I opened the link and it didn't take 20 seconds at all, I don't think you are having any issues.

OWA page is known to be a bit slower to show the first time after it goes idle for a long time try loading it first, then close the browser and load it again does it load fast enough ?

if yes then you are good

4GB Memory???

What roles does this exchange server run? HT?CAS? DB?

If it is a single server with ALL roles then you should be running a recomended 16GB memory at least.
What else runs on that server?

Could be Bandwidth or Firewall ....

You should though be reading.... http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd298121.aspx

You server is underspec and is not a supported install. You drop below the Minimum supported hardware requirements.

I have added 4 GB memory.

Config is now: 2 CPU's and 8 GB. It takes 12 seconds to see the page.

It's not a bandwith issue. The server is connected with a fiber connection (30mb download en upload).

Any ideas?
Mate, Locally is it working properly?

If yes, then it wouldn't be anything related to Server ... You could check your Firewall settings .. ssl cert provider is also worth a look . ..
This could be even an issue relating to CRL checking...
