Hello ,


Suddenly before 4-5 days our customers started to complain about OWA and that it suddenly logged them out when they are inactive. The thing is that this behaviour started before 4-5 days without changing anything. I have never setup something about OWA inactivity timeout.

Any ideas maybe?

Thanks

The default timeout value for private computers is 8 hours , i would check first if anything has changed on this level

registry keys are available at
"HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchange OWA” PrivateTimeout and PublicTimeout
