'outlook://public folders' link doesnt work with office 2007

We currently have a link on our Intranet (outlook://public%20folders/all%20public%20folders) but that does not work for our Office 2007 users. It brings up a 'The webpage cannot be displayed" page.  I have read that Outlook 2007 does not recognized the 'outlook://' as a vaild URL.

I have tried other alternatives such as http://exchangeserver/public which works but the Powers That Be do not want users to have to log in.  

Any other suggestions??

It won't work with the old URL.  There are plenty of articles out there about what has been tried.  The upshot is that the "Outlook Protocol" doesn't work outside of Outlook anymore.

Funnier still, if you send a link from within outlook 2007, it creates an .NRK file which is blocked by Outlook :)

your HTTP method is the best.

The other thing you can do is create a link (like the one you have above for outlook://.. and SEND it as a hyperlink in an email to the people you want to open it.  It WILL work that way.

Thanks for your response.  I have spent hours reseraching articles and there really aren't many out there; ones I did find, offered solutions I've already tried.

Yes, I noticed that.  

That does work, however, it is not the solution I was searching for...unless i save the message and then post it as a document to the Intranet.  It appears the HTTP method is best because that seems to the only way to post a link on our Intranet webpage.
