Connect to Outlook feature in SharePoint 2010 still using .pst files?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

The Connect to Outlook feature in SharePoint Server 2007 uses a .pst file to store content that is visible in Outlook. This has caused issues in the past with a client's enterprise policy of preventing use of .pst files on desktops. This particular client has an application that periodically checks for .pst files and deletes them, which breaks the Connect to Outlook feature for them.

Does SharePoint 2010 use the same functionality to Connect to Outlook, or something different?

how do you package files with a feature in sharepoint 2010?

In my old sp2007 project, I would create a folder that would contain my feature, when it got deployed, any files would also be deployed along with them, so I could use them during feature activation later on (config xml files). How can I also deploy an xml file in 2010 along with my feature?nonam

SharePoint 2010 Master page feature stapling - not sure where to put files


I have successfully added a branding feature to my 2010 environment that activates on install. Just as expected, it does not work for subsite creation. I have seen a number of articles/blog posts on how to create a feature stapler for SP2007. However, I am having a hard time finding a working solution for SP2010 using VS2010.

I have a couple of questions that I hope someone can point me in the right direction on:

1. In my project I have a branding feature, this contains the EventReceiver that applies the change. Can I have a second feature here that does the stapling or does it need to be in a completely seperate project?

2. Everything I read points to two files feature.xml and elements.xml, are both of those supposed to be under Features in Solution Explorer or are they located somewhere else or do they need to be create. If they need to be created, where do they belong?

3. In the EventReceiver.cs file there is a GUID that was automatically generated. Is this the GUID referenced in the feature.xml?

Hopefully with these questions answered I can move forward and find a solution to getting the stapler working.

Outlook 2010 / Sharepoint authenthication issue


Hi all,

I'm using Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 64bit.

My company uses a hosted Sharepoint server (I guess it's Sharepoint 2010). There's a team calendar, which I would like to connect to my Outlook 2010. Linking it to Outlook works fine until it tries to update the calendar with the Sharepoint server. I shows the following error:

Error (0x80070005) when running the task "SharePoint": "You are not authorized to view the SharePoint list (team calendar). Contact the administrator of SharePoint site. HTTP 401."

So this tells me, I'm not authorized to connect - which is quite clear because Outlook never asked my for any username or password.

Funny thing is when I try to add an internet calendar (Right mouse click on calendars, Add calendar, Internet calendar) and use the url of the sharepoint list, it asks me for username and password, but then fails to add the calendar, as it isn't a webcal (which is OK).

BUT: As Outlook at this moment has the username and password, the exisiting Sharepoint calendar synchronizes correctly. This works until Outlook is being restarted.

Does anyone have an idea why I'm not asked for any authentication? Maybe there's some setting I haven't found yet? It works with trying to add the webcal any time when I start Outlook, but t

Problem Saving Files to A Sharepoint 2010 Site from Office 2010: Saves locally by default rather tha

Hi we are starting to use sharepoint 2010 / word 2010 and have found an interesting bug/problem. Sometimes when a user tries to save a file (by clicking on the save button in the quick access toolbar for word 2010) the save dialog comes up with the users local "Documents" folder as the path (not the correct sharepoint path where the document should be saved).  (I should say that we are creating the file from sharepoint by using a toolbar on the document library, with the new button)  We are using a content type and a template attached to the document library when we create the file.  This is really annoying because the user might not notice that the document is saving locally and not to sharepoint.  I have found a strange workaround which involves clicking the [File] tab on the ribbon in word 2010, then clicking "Save and Send" and then clicking the save button again.  At this point word 2010 seems to "remember" that it is trying to save document to sharepoint and shows the sharepoint document library. This is a real nuisance which could lead to documents being lost/misfiled if people don't realize that this is happening.  Can anyone help me? Thanks Kevin krd

Indexing files larger than 16 MB in SharePoint 2010

Tonight, I came across an interesting blog post by Fellow MVP, Todd Klidnt in which he explains how to work around the 16 MB limitation for file indexing in SharePoint 2010 using PowerShell. "As with previous versions of SharePoint, SharePoint 2010 will not index the contents of files larger than 16 MB. There are a couple of reasons for this such as network usage pulling large files across and the time it takes to break them apart". Click here to continue to the post.

SharePoint Designer 2010 errors out when trying to connect to SharePoint 2010

When trying to connect Designer 2010 to our SharePoint 2010 we have setup here, the web seems to open, but then it bombs out with an error "An error occurred while trying to fetch data from your SharePoint site. Unknown response from the server.". And we're stuck as of now. Noting this bombs out also from Designer 2010 on the server, as well as from my workstation, so it's some sort of service issue.We've done:1) Firewalls off, on both server and my desktop2) I've been made admin everywhere, including the farm admin. Doesn't just die on my user, but all users get same error.3) Clicking lots of checkboxes in hundreds of places :)Any thoughts as to why designer dies?NotingThat when I Open Site in Designer 2010, and put the Url in the Site Name, the folder structure does show the folders of the site, so I can see images, _catalogs, SitePages, etc. It's just when trying to connect is when it doesn't work.
