SYMPTOMS

In an Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) environment, when you use Outlook Web Access (OWA) with S/MIME installed to send a message that includes a large attachment, an HTTP 500 error resembling the following is returned:
Exception 
Exception type: System.Web.HttpException 
Exception message: Request timed out.

CAUSE

This issue occurs when the network bandwidth between OWA and Exchange Server 2007 SP1 is limited. When an OWA client does not have S/MIME installed, many time-out values are reset. However, when S/MIME is installed on the OWA client, the time-out error occurs.
