Strange OWA timeouts?
By default the OWA extensions timeout a request to restore an item after 30 seconds. This was previously not configurable. In some environments this has posed a problem in the past, where some internal Windows API calls were taking a little bit of time to come back, with, for example, user->group membership details.
A fix for this was introduced and can be used with version EV 8 and onwards
The fix is slightly dependent on whether you are using Exchange 2003, or Exchange 2007. If it is Exchange 2003, edit your EVBackend.ini file to include a line like this :
(where exch1 is the name of the Exchange Server)
If it is Exchange 2007, edit the web.config file so that it has the following line added :
You will see a line in the EV OWA Diagnostic log file similiar to this when you've implemented the change :

It is not advised to change this to a high value, but some customers have had success in changing this to 45, as an example.
