Using Outlook Application within Sharepoint

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have a user request to run Outlook 2010 from within Sharepoint 2010.  They don't want to run OWA.  They want their desktop version of Outlook 2010 to run when Sharepoint 2010 is brought-up.

Outlook.Application in Infopath 2003/SharePoint 2010


I transferred our form library from SP2003 to SP2010. Everything works except for when I try to submit the form via Outlook using "Outlook.Application". 

var objOutlook = new ActiveXObject( "Outlook.Application" );
var olMailItem;
var objOutlookMsg = objOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem);

We are still using Office 2003 with SharePoint 2010. Anyone know if the above code doesnt work anymore in SP2010?

Thank you,


Integrating a Legacy Web Application in SharePoint

This month we will continue with the theme of deploying Microsoft's SharePoint as a company intranet by describing a method for integrating a legacy Web application inside a SharePoint site.

In many companies the intranet site is not just a home page with announcements. It houses Web applications used by many different departments. In last month's article, I built a page to search the employee table in Northwind (the sample database included in Microsoft's SQL Server). This month, I will move the Web pages used to add/remove records from the table into the SharePoint intranet.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 1 of 2

In this first part of the two part series, Steven covers the differences between Site and Application pages in SharePoint 2007, why each may be used in various circumstances, and prepares for the construction of a menu located application page. After a brief introduction he examines the concept of Site Pages and Application Pages separately in detail with supported screenshots.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.

Application Vs. Content Pages in SharePoint

SharePoint has two types of ASPX pages. One type is the application page, also known as a _layout page. The other type of ASPX page is a content page, also known as a site page. Each of these page types is stored in a different location in SharePoint. When developers create custom ASPX pages, they must decide on the page type.

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

SharePoint 2007 Web Application Images

When I create a new web application in MOSS 2007 the images are broken. I find "Red Cross" symbols but no images. To my surprise I have created plenty of applications before but I never had any such issues. The images on other applications on the same server work absolutely fine but when I try to create a new one I find this problem. I have also tried the following: 1. Added "Everyone" to the Images application 2. Checked the permissions on the site and folders 3. When I try to browse to the image it gives me a 403 forbidden error. In the Log files i see 403 1 5 0 error for all the images. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
