Hello,



I have recently deployed Exchange 2010 (on Windows 2008R2) for a client.



One user is asking if it is possible for OWA to remember his password so that he does not have to type it each time he accesses OWA.  Is this possible?  I've of course indicated the security concerns of doing so.  



Is this doable?



Thanks,

Real-Timer

Not without a third party browser plugin or allowing the browser to remember the password and perform an auto-fill.

What browser will he be using?

I would agree with your security concerns statement realtimer. Often the password gives access to more than just a mailbox, what other access rights could that give away if someone managed to reveal the password ? ACLs on file shares, VPN, Citrix XenAPP, can you perform authenticated relay against your mail server with it ? even if your Exchange is hosted the security often uses a federation or a mirrored password through a DirSync. I think this guys question to you is valuable in ways you would not think.

Thanks folks.  

Not planning to make any changes unless specfically instructed by chiefs of the company, but for reference, here's a Microsoft article summary which instructs on how to do this:

1. On the Exchange server, locate to the following path: C:\Program Files\microsoft\exchange\ClientAccess\Owa\auth
2. Modify login.aspx - replacing the string autocomplete="off" with autocomplete="on"
3. Now Internet Explorer will offer to remember the password to the site.

Oh you were referring to allowing autocomplete. Completely misunderstood the question.
