OWA integration

  Asked By: Gabriella    Date: Apr 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2699

I am trying to use the 'My Inbox' web part to facilitate OWA integration in my
environment. It is working fine. I was wondering, however, if there is a way
to pass through or hard code creds so users would not have to log in to OWA
through the 'My Inbox' webpart. Your help is much appreciated.

Is it prompting for authentication because your OWA is in forms based
authentication mode? If it is you could always create a secondary entrance
point that simply does NTLM auth instead.

Yes, 'forms based authentication' is configured for
OWA. How would I go about configuring secondary entrance point?

First of all, there's a user profile property called "outlook web
access URL". When you put the correct URL here, in users' profile
properties, then it will automatically be populated when users  add any
of the owa  web parts to their site. Then, all users have to do is put
in their own email address in the "Mailbox" field in the web  part
toolpane for the owa web parts.

Where do you get the correct "Outlook web access URL"? I've found that
after I log  in to OWA, I look at the URL at the top of the screen. If
it's https://email.mycompany.com/exchange, then I use the following URL
as my "Outlook web access URL": http://servername/exchange

This seems to work fine  with the name of any email server in your
domain, even if it's not the exact server that the particular user's
mailbox is on.

Also, a nice bonus to populating the "Outlook web access URL" field, is
that now, when you're on your "My Site", there is a link at the top of
the screen called "My OWA" (in place of where it used to say "my
site"), and that link takes you directly into OWA without having to log

Can you do this with public folders too?

Answer #5    Answered By: Claire May     Answered On: Apr 02

What web  part are you trying to display public folders in?
Also, why use public folders instead of putting content in SharePoint?
