Hi all,

thanks for your help. The solution is a little bit more comlplex.
MSIE6 needs extensions to the WebDAV standard. The following works:

HTTP/1.1 207 Multi-Status
Cache-Control: no-cache
Connection: Keep-Alive
Date: Thu, 15 May 2003 15:23:28 GMT
Server: Spider 4.1.3.2.1  (May 15 2003 16:50:02)
Content-Type: text/xml; charset="utf-8"
Content-Length: 409

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<multistatus xmlns="DAV:" 
xmlns:b="urn:uuid:c2f41010-65b3-11d1-a29f-00aa00c14882/">
<response>
<href>/</href>
<propstat>
<status>HTTP/1.1 200 OK</status>
<prop>
<displayname>/</displayname>
<getlastmodified b:dt="dateTime.tz">2003-05-09T08:00:00Z</getlastmodified>
<resourcetype><collection/></resourcetype>
</prop>
</propstat>
</response>
</multistatus>

So MSIE is not standard compliant and also no WebDAV client.
The same problem applies to all other MS products (Excel, Word, ...).
