  • is it possible to embed the OWA 2003 interface into a sharepoint page?

    and is is possible for users authenticated into sharepoint to automatically gain access directly to their own mailbox on embedded OWA page?

  • Hi there,

    You can use the Inbox Web part on a sharepoint page; but be advised that this is not configurable to show another shared account (for example). Meaning, that the credentials of the logged in user is passed to OWA. You will need to have Single Sign on and kerberos configured to get this to work correctly.

    Also, you will have to ensure that you enter the appropriate address into the relevant webpart (i.e. https://yourexchangeserver/owa )

    If you want users to be able to log into a mailbox on a page then leave the username blank - otherwise, setup a variable to replace the username with the credentials of the logged in user

    For more information go here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb232199.aspx

    Hope this helps

  • thanks guys
    geoff in your link the document is no longer available

    i'll probably skip the automatic login to OWA from sharepoint as i'd rather not tinker too much

    which web part should i use, is it already available or do i need to download something?

    would such web part work to embed any HTTP page within sharepoint? as i have a web based helpdesk system which would be good to have on there too as a central application location for users

  • Hi there,

    Ok, sorry about that link heres another, and quite helpful:

    I would consider using the My Mail Folder web part, or the My Inbox Web part listed under the Outlook Web Access section. These can be dropped into any zone in a web part page.

    Hope this answers ok?
