The best place is to use MySite. There is a webpart called "My Inbox" that will do exactly that.

The reprompt for information usually means both your sites are not listed in your Local Intranet zones, or that Integrated Windows Authentication is not selected for both sites. Both are required to be set appropriate to avoid a prompt for credentials. My Inbox functionality is looking for the OWA address (http://owa.company.com/exchange), and the user information (email address works as well). Unfortunately, there is no way to have this Inbox accomodate several users at the same time. In other words, each user would need to set up their web part themselves.

if each individual user need to configure there own mail webparts, I think it is not a good solution logicallly. The end user will not be familiar with technical aspects , so how i can overcome this... is there any other solution , or can I use my developer to accomplish this

Regards

Quite frankly, if you have a developer on Staff that would be the ideal option. Have them create a webpart that within the Render overriden method calls:

writer.Write(String.Format("<IFRAME src=\"{0}\" />", <your_exchangeOWAUrl>));

Thanks for the help,

Can I pass the sharepoint logged in user credentials to the OWA, ...





Re: SharePoint - Setup, Upgrade, Administration and Operation Exchange integration

Curtis Ruppe (MicroStaff IT)

Yes, but two things must be true:

  1. Both your SharePoint web sites and OWA must be using Integrated Windows Authentication
  2. Both your SharePoint web sites and OWA must be listed in your Local Intranet zone (within Internet Explorer).

Ok Thanks for your time,

What will happen on accessing the intranet portal from internet Secondly if the user sign in as a diffrent user from the portal he can see the mails of the AD user logeed in to the system

Both questions have the same answer. If you have it coded to go off of the Page.User identity, then you will only see your email (assuming you have an email account setup) or an error messaage if you don't have an email account setup. It doesn't matter where you came from, since you have to log in to see the page.

ok, can you provide some code sample to pass the page.user identity to the owaInbox webpart. Also, still the user need to type credentials... right....



Re: SharePoint - Setup, Upgrade, Administration and Operation Exchange integration

Curtis Ruppe (MicroStaff IT)

You can't pass your user identity with the out of the box OWAInbox webpart. You must code it through a custom web part. The user will not need to type credentials if you system uses Integrated Windows Authentication and you have both OWA and SharePoint sites listed in your Local Intranet zone.

hi again,

i have the same problem in using My calendar web part.

Can SSO solve this problem

Where to set the Local Intranet zone, in sharepoint server or user's machine and how can i set OWA in local intranet zone.

thanks.

SSO is for backend only. My Calendar is done completely through the client-side browser UI via an IFRAME.

The Local Intranet zone I am refering to is located within the Security tab of Internet Options of each individual users' machines.
