Network credentials

I have a pop up window which loads the exchange add new appointment window, however when this loads it requires a username and password.

Is there anyway to pass across the username and password to save the user entering these.

This is the code i use to load the pop up

function addappointment()
{
var username = document.getElementById("username").value;
var pagelink = 'http://192.168.0.14/exchange/' + username + '/Calendar/?Cmd=new';

newwindow=window.open(pagelink,'name','height=600,width=600,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,toolbar=no,status=yes');
      if (window.focus) {newwindow.focus()}

}


Thanks

Not tested but worth a try:

function addappointment(){
   var username = document.getElementById("username").value;
   var pwd = "topsecret";
   var pagelink = 'http://"+username+":"+pwd+"@192.168.0.14/exchange/' + username + '/Calendar/?Cmd=new';

   newwindow=window.open(pagelink,'name','height=600,width=600,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes');
   newwindow.focus()
}

Perhaps is a good idea to post also a twenty points reference to this question in the Exchange topic area:

Apparently this feature of inserting the username and password into the query string has been disabled by microsoft on IE5 and above, has anyone got any suggestions

Thanks
