Pass CRM 2011 Outlook authentication to Internet Explorer

Okay, so I have a Dynamics CRM 2011 environment running with IFD Configured. CRM is running Update Rollup 11, ADFS 2.0 has no Update Rollups installed. All servers in the environment are 2008R2.

Our in-house developers have created a web app that serves documents through to CRM. When signed in using the browser, this functionality works as expected. However, when accessed via Outlook, when the link for the file is clicked, Outlook spawns iexplore.exe - the problem with this, it seems, is that Outlook does not pass its ADFS auth over into Internet Explorer, and thus the end user is presented with an ADFS login page. This is inconvenient.

Is there a way for me to make some configuration changes, either to Outlook, IE, CRM, or ADFS to make the behavior I desire function?

Thanks in advance, and feel free to ask for additional information. I'll provide as necessary.

Hi JohnThePro,
AFAIK it is not possible to pass the authentication in that manner.

Regards,
Chinmay.
