I am not familiar with Exchange 2010 and Outlook Web Access.  My question is about logging in to Exchange from internet to retrieve emails in Outlook Web Access.  How do you login to exchange from Outlook Web Access?  Can it use the claim based authentication?

If we use Claim based authentication, does it means you can access both exchange and other MS Application like CRM 2011 with IFD (internet facing deployment)?

If the functional levels are 2008 for the forest and domain, you can see where they last logged in.  The only solutions I've seen for this utilize the login/log off scripts to write username, computer name, time of login/off and whatever other info is desired to a log on the network.

Outlook web access only authenticates via active directory and the windows security tokens as of current. I would expect this to change at some point with the SAML push in Sharepoint, but who knows. So login is either domain\username or username@domain (I have seen configurations for the email address domain and some for AD domain, as they don't necessarily need to be the same)

You can use AD as a part of the (not 100% on terminology) claims provider to allow the AD users to have SAML tokens created from their security tokens.

My apologies regarding the IFD, but I haven't worked with that specific deployment, so I don't know.

Hi Tommym121,

Outlook Web Acces[OWA] works in a different way and I am not sure if it supports claims based authentication. It definitely won't show you CRM withing OWA as of today.

Generally it is https://owa.yourmailserver.com but then if your administrator has customized it, it can be anything.

Regards,
Chinmay.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

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.

Chinmay,

If we use Outlook with CRM intergation, what type of authentication are we doing? Do we need to logon one time through outlook and one time to the CRM?

Hi Tommym121,

No. For Outlook your authentication mechanism comes from AD in case of On Premise implementation and if you have implemented ADFS then it will use ADFS but your credentials will always come from AD but logon is facilitated by ADFS.

Also note that when you use CRM Outlook Client, you dont have to login again.

Regards,
Chinmay.
