IE8 proxy settings GW8.0.2

Groupwise Client 8.0.2

This is not a mail about proxy access to other mailboxes but about the proxy setting on Internet browsers
We are behind a Mcafee proxy gateway with acess to the internet using users authentification login and password.
When we open mails in http format with links to internet URLs we are constantly asked for authentification. If there are 10 links there are 10 logins !!! if there are 20 links then 20 logins. Is there anyway we configure Browser authentification once and for all with GW8
I have the same problem with firefox. All googled searches point me to user proxy setting

Do users have to enter their authentication every time they open a
browser?
I'm guessing 'yes', so do they need to authenticate again if they open
a second browser instance and/or tab?
Does this behavior differ between different browsers?

The GroupWise client just sends the link to the default browser, so the
problem is likely something to do with how does the browser gets the
initial credentials. If the proxy credentials are different from the
Windows ID credentials, then you will get this behavior every time you
launch a fresh browser instance.

If their browser is open and they open a new drowser or a tab they do not have to log again if they close the browser then they must login.
Authentification is through LDAP using AD so the login/password is Active Directory authentification.

OK, that's normal, but your problem doesn't happen on the client system
with a proxy that I'm currently on. So lets try a few different things

1) does this happen on all systems for all users? Or just a select few?
2) if a browser window is opened and authenticated to the proxy, does
this behavior still happen?
3) are all the affected users on the same build of the GroupWise client?
If so, which build number is it? Could you please try a newer/newest
build of the client to see it the problem is still there?

4) Other useful information:
- Which OS and what version of OS are these clients running on?
- Are the AD and GroupWise credentials the same? If so how are they
synced?
