How to use Encrypted password with Exchange Web Service

Hi,

I'm trying to connect to Exchange Web Service Like this :

$Password = ConvertTo-SecureString -string $Encrypted
$exchService = New-Object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeService($exchVersion) #connects to the Exchange service
$Credentials = new-object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.WebCredentials("username", $Password,"domain")
$exchService.Credentials = $Credentials

Open in new window


The problem is that Exchange Web Service failed to connect as I soon I try to read email I got a 401 Unauthorizied error.
If I type my password in place of "$Password" it's working fine.

Does any1 got an idea or a different approch for using encrypted password in this cmd-let ?

Thx in advance

Don't you mean?

$Encrypted = ConvertTo-SecureString -string $Password

$exchService = New-Object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeService($exchVersion) #connects to the Exchange service
$Credentials = new-object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.WebCredentials("username", $Encrypted,"domain")
$exchService.Credentials = $Credentials

Ok I didn't find a way to make it running with WebCrendtials function but I've updated my code that way and now it's working :

$Password = ConvertTo-SecureString -string $Encrypted
$exchVersion = [Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeVersion]::Exchange2007_SP1 
$exchService = New-Object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeService($exchVersion) 
$Credentials = New-Object System.Net.NetworkCredential("username", $Password)
$exchService.Credentials = $Credentials
