When you use the Outlook Web Access (OWA) client, you may encounter anerror message when trying to attach a large file. The size of theattachment may vary, and the error can occur with different sizeattachments because of system conditions such as resources, speed of thesystem, and so on. After selecting "Add Attachment Now," the animated iconappears as OWA attempts to add the file. Then the following error messageappears:
error 'ASP 0113'
Script timed out


The maximum amount of time for a script to execute was exceeded. You can
change this limit by specifying a new value for the property
Server.ScriptTimeOut or by changing the value in the IIS administration
After this error has occurred, the only choice is to close the browserwindow, and restart OWA.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft productslisted at the beginning of this article.
