Hi Experts,

I'm trying to add the owa webparts to a site. They should show my inbox or calendar. When i fill in my e-mail server and e-mail account, i get the error shown in the image.

Server error
Do these webparts work with Exchange 2010? Do I have to configure something on the SharePoint server, like installing the smtp connector? Do I have to activate it on the Exchange server?

    Web Parts do work on Exchange 2010. Ensure that you are using the right syntax:

    Thanks Simon,

    It works when I use the webmail url with /owa behind it. However, it shows the owa logon screen in the webpart. Is there a way to automatically show the inbox or calendar?

    If you are using Forms Based Authentication on your primary site, you will need to create a second site in IIS and then add in the virtual directories using EMS, which doesn't have FBA enabled.

    We use the URL to connect to OWA. For the webparts to work, i had to add /owa.

    Thanks Simon
