Webmail security problem

After logging out from the new webmail I am able to return to the inbox simply by clicking the 'back' button on the browser. Although I cannot then view the content of specific emails (as a timed-out message appears when I click on an individual email), this does nonetheless represent a serious security/privacy problem.

Is this a known issue which will be addressed?

That issue in question is local cache related, which is soemthign that can't be addressed server side.

The page expired page in IE, is generated when you click back, to a page that was visited using a POST type request.

There is likely no simple change to convert it to a POST type request,a nd would likely mean a redesign from the gorund up.
