Hi
Im developing a windows app with webbrowser control that can access the outlook mail of a user and I would like to know if its possible to access owa using the url like .../exchweb/bin/auth/owalogon.asp?username=123password=123.
Or any other way that the login data could be passed without user intervention.

If anyone knows how to do this, please reply

This is a Exchange 2003 SBS and for what I know It doesnt have any web services available.


Thank you

You would need to add some javascript to the OWA login page to get it to prepopulate the form using the data passed in the querystring, and then submit it. So, if this is an app you are hoping to sell, then it's not really feasible to pass credentials in the querystring.

It always used to be possible to pass credentials like this:

https://username:password@servername.domain.com/whatever.doc

(see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/URI_scheme#Examples )

But this only works with Basic Authentication. I don't know if OWA's IIS security will accept this, if FBA is enabled. Might be worth a try, though. Note that this feature is turned off by default in recent version of IE, but you might be able to get a browser control to use it.
