Exchange 2010 OWA Forms Based Login via Exchange Web Services Managed API
Posted on 2011-05-09
How do I/Is it possible, to authenticate to OWA 2010 using FBA, and receive the sessionid and cadata cookies back?
All I can find on the matter is articles related to owa 2003 and 2007, most suggesting to perform a POST directly to owaauth.dll. I have tried to adjust the code to work with 2010, by pointing to /owa/auth.owa, but the closest I get is a 440 Login Timeout error. Logging in through the client works fine.
Using EWS Managed API, I can authenticate and get data, but the CookieContainer object is empty unless I run a query first. The cookie it returns after doing so is named "exchangecookie" and does not help me so much.
Am I missing something? or is this just not done in 2010 now?
