I'm not using the OWA server - I've gotten the server name from IT
(although I've been given three different names - all of which I can
ping). What sort of authentication does the GAL do? Does it need more
than my e-mail username and password? Is there any other way to access
the GAL (other than through a web page which I can do)? What other
things could be going wrong? I can get my mail and mount Windows network
shares, etc.
