We are currently installing Exchange 2007 into our organisation. At the moment we are using WSS 3.0 as our intranet solution and have no plans to upgrade to Sharepoint Server 2007 due to licence costs etc.
My question is, is it possible to integrate OWA 2007 into WSS 3.0 so that users have a single sign-in.

Yes, these are customer web parts within Sharepoint.  Go and edit a sharepoint page and try to add some web parts to the page, and look thorugh the list.   Please let me know after you have a chance to do that, and we can try to answer further quesitons to get that working.
 
The majority of the integration is in taking Sharepoint lists into Outlook 2007 rather than using public folders (as was done in Exchange 2003).  You can share calendars between the two also.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Site actions (upper right) | Edit page | Pick the appropriate section/zone | Add a web part | Advanced web part gallery and options (bottom) | on the we part list scroll through the list until you find "My Calendar", "My contacts", "My Inbox" or "My mail folder".
 
Let me know how it goes.
