How to Use Outlook Web Access Web Parts: Exchange 2007 Help:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb232199.aspx

Outlook Web Access Web Parts let you access Outlook Web Access content directly from a URL. The URL can be entered into a Web browser or embedded in an application. Generally, Web Parts are not created manually. Instead, they are created programmatically based on selections made in a user interface (UI), or they are embedded directly in an application, such as a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 page. The code behind the UI then creates the URL. One use for Outlook Web Access Web Parts is to display a user’s Inbox or Calendar in an Office SharePoint Server 2007 page.

Microsoft Project 2010 Resources

August 27, 2011

Since the release of Public Beta last November a lot of Microsoft Project 2010 content and in particular videos have been made available free of charge!

To assist with the discoverability of these Project 2010 video assets I have a compiled the attached spreadsheet, it mainly contains links to each of the Project Conference 2009 recorded breakout session and the recently started Project 2010 webcasts series. The attached list contains about 95 videos equivalent to about 117 hours of recording so hopefully plenty of content to learn about the Project 2010 key investments.

Expect a lot more videos by the time the product is launched.

Microsoft Windows 2003 Securing SMTP

August 26, 2011

Microsoft Windows 2003 Securing SMTP Virtual Servers:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc737604.aspx

Configuring Access-Related Settings

You can restrict access to your SMTP server by requiring authentication, limiting access according to IP address, or both. Restrict access by using the Access tab of the SMTP virtual server properties dialog box. The Access tab has five important security-related settings: Authentication, Certificate, Communication, Connection, and Relay.

Authentication

The Authentication option allows you to select from the following methods for authenticating users who attempt to connect to your SMTP server:

  • Anonymous access. Anonymous access does not require users to enter a user name and password. This option is intended for servers that accept mail from outside the network.
    For example, if you are creating a stand-alone smart host that sits outside of your firewall and in front of your Exchange server, then you might select Anonymous access. Or, if you are creating a server to receive e-mail from a public Web site, then you might select Anonymous access.
  • Basic authentication. Basic authentication requires users to enter a valid user name and password; however, the credentials are sent across the network unencrypted. If you select Basic authentication, then select Requires TLS encryption, which encrypts the user credentials. To require TLS encryption, you must have a valid SSL certificate installed on the server.
  • Integrated Windows authentication. Integrated Windows authentication requires users to enter a valid Windows user name and password to connect to your SMTP server. Credentials are sent across the network encrypted. You can select Integrated Windows authentication if you are setting up a smart host to relay messages within your network or if you are setting up a server to receive e-mail from internal sites, such as a company intranet.

Certificate and Communication

The Certificate and Communication options allow you to secure communication by installing security certificates and requiring encryption. To install a certificate, click Certificate to start the New Certificate Wizard. Then, if you want to require the SMTP service to use SSL to encrypt every message, click Communication.

Connection

The Connection option allows you to restrict access to your server based on IP address. For example, if you are setting up a smart host that works inside your network, then you can use the Only the list below option to restrict access to the range of IP addresses for your network. If you are setting up a smart host that relays external e-mail or if you are setting up a server to accept e-mail from a public Web site, then connection control can be an effective way to restrict unsolicited commercial e-mail. After you identify the IP address or addresses of computers that send bulk e-mail, you can use the All except the list belowoption to prevent computers with specific IP addresses from connecting to your server. Although you can restrict access based solely on the domain name, this practice is not recommended because of the resources required to perform a reverse DNS lookup to identify the IP address of the computer attempting to connect.

Change the language settings in the Microsoft Office Project Add-in for Outlook

August 25, 2011

Consider the following scenario:

You install Microsoft Office Outlook and a language pack for another language. For example, you install the French language pack. Then, you install the Microsoft Office Project Add-in for Outlook. During the Microsoft Office Project Add-in for Outlook setup process, you specify the language that was used when you installed Outlook. For example, you specify English.

You use Add or Remove programs in Control Panel to remove the Microsoft Office Project Add-in for Outlook. Then, you use the Microsoft Office Language Settings tool to change the default language for the Office programs. For example, you change the language for the Office programs from English to French.

You reinstall the Microsoft Office Project Add-in for Outlook. Then, you specify the language that you set by using the Microsoft Office Language Settings tool. For example, you specify French.

Error message after you change the language settings in the Microsoft Office Project Add-in for Outlook: “Run-time error: 91”:
