I'm using the latest Firefox build (1.0.7, just prior to 1.5, which I
haven't gotten yet) at home, and I can use Walter Reed's Outlook Web
Access with no difficulty. I set up a personal folder on the server to
hold all of my old e-mails in case I need them.
I never pass up an opportunity to advocate switching from IE to Firefox. :)
