How to Enable Sharepoint WSS 3.0 to Share Passwords with Exchange 2007?

Hello,

I realize it's not recommended for a boat-load of good security reasons, but I need to create a Sharepoint WSS 3.0 site that has immediate access to data inside Exchange 2007 without prompting for additional passwords.

The direct application is a Sharepoint site with several customized pages.  One fo these pages is the user's Exchange mailbox and others are Exchange Public Folders (Calendars).  NOTE: Users have the same username/password combination for both WSS and Exchange and Both Programs are located on the same server.

How do I set this up so that logging into Sharepoint WSS 3.0 once will automatically pass these credentials to Exchange 2007?

THANKS!
Jason

You can't relay NTLM.  If the client system is in the same domain as Exchange and WSS then IE can automatically log them in.

Kerberos can be relayed, however, it's challenging to setup.

Thanks for your response.  Let me add a little more information

Server A - Current Server Runs the Way I Want with Seemless Credential Passing
  Windows Server 2003
  Exchange 2003
  WSS 3.0

Server B - Trying to Set Up Like Server A but Can't Get it to Work Same Way
  Windows Server 2003
  Exchange 2003
  WSS 3.0

On Server A, Sharepoint Authentication is NTLM and ASP2NET Application Pool is using Network Service.

So, to summarize, I'm able to get Exchange 2003 to share credientals seemlessly with WSS 3.0 but can't do it with Exchange 2007 on Server B.  Need hints and/or solutions to figuring out what the differences are to affect this behavior.

THANKS for any comments.

I am willing to HIRE a Sharepoint / Exchange expert to help me make Sharepoint relay credentials to Exchange if anyone is interested in taking a shot at it.
