Outlook Web Part Config

    Question

  • hello I am trying to configure the outlook web parts my inbox and my calender sepeccifically. When I enter my server address https://owa/<servername>/owa the web part just displays a login form. My thought  was once you login to sharepoint you would be logged into OWA web part as well, is there a way to get this working. Ther version of exchange we are working with is 2007. Is there something that need to be configured on the exchange side.

  • There could be a couple ways to fix that:

    Method 1:

    Add your Exchange server's OWA URL to the trusted Local Intranet sites on the client machines.

    Method 2:

    1. Open IIS Manager, right click the Exchange (OWA) virtual directory and select All Tasks > Save configuration to a file
    2. Enter a file name and path to save the configuration file somewhere on the server
    3. Right click on the default website and select New > Virtual Directory (from file)
    4. Select the configuration file saved in step 2 and click the Read File button
    5. Select the virtual directory from the location list and click OK
    6. Select the Create a new virtual directory option and give the new virtual directory an alias (e.g. "SharePointOWA")
    7. Right click the new virtual directory and select Properties
    8. Select the Directory Security tab
    9. Click the Edit button in the Authentication and access control section
    10. Change the authentication method to Integrated Windows authentication in the Authenticated access section and click OK
    11. Click the Edit button in the Secure communications section
    12. Ensure the Require secure channel (SSL) option in NOT checked and click OK
    13. Click OK to close the properties dialog for the new virtual directory

    From within your My Site, edit the properties of the My Calendar and My Inbox web parts:

    1. Enter the URL to the new virtual directory in the Mail Server Address field (e.g. http://servername/sharepointowa)
    2. Enter the mailbox name or email address in the Mailbox field (Note:  If you're running Outlook Web Access with Exchange Server 2003 you'll need to suffix the mailbox name with either /calendar or /inbox, e.g. wsaleemi/calendar)
    3. Click OK to complete the configuration of the web part then exit edit mode
