925232 Description of the ISA Server 2004 hotfix package: September 20, 2006
This hotfix makes ISA Server ignore the "Expires" header when a "Cache-Control: no-cache" header is included in the response from the Exchange server. Both headers are used to prevent the caching of HTTP content and can be used together.
If the third-party add-in for Exchange uses only the "-1" value in the "Expires" header, you must enable the add-in program to also include the "Cache-Control: no cache" header. To do this, see the third-party add-in program's documentation, or contact the manufacturer of the add-in program.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
The forms-based authentication filter in ISA 2004 is tested for an Outlook Web Access scenario that does not include any add-in programs. In this scenario, Outlook Web Access does not pass the "-1" value for the "Expires" header. Therefore, access to Outlook Web Access is successful. The forms-based authentication filter for Outlook Web Access in ISA Server 2004 supports the following formats for the "Expires" header:
- Sun, 06 Nov 1994 08:49:37 GMT
- Sunday, 06-Nov-94 08:49:37 GMT
- Sun Nov 6 08:49:37 1994
