You can run Exchange using the Netlet for Windows 95, 98, SE, ME. Windows 2000, and later releases, has reserved the port that the netlet uses to listen on and that the Outlook client is hard coded to use. Stopping the services on this port will prevent system-wide networking from functioning correctly.

In SP3 Hot Patch 1, the ability to use Outlook Web Access (OWA) instead was added so that remote users could still access their corporate mail without the use of the Outlook client. The rewriter rules necessary for this integration are pre-loaded into the gateway profile when the patch is installed. There is one remaining problem with OWA integration that has to do with the Internet Explorer client.

As described earlier, the STYLE attribute is not currently handled by the gateway. OWA uses DHTML defined by the CSS behavior attribute. Because the behavior attribute has a URL and the STYLE attribute itself is not handled any differently than other HTML tag attributes, the URL will not be rewritten correctly. Thus, there are some more advanced OWA actions, such as folder renaming, which will not work correctly using the Internet Explorer browser. The entire functionality has been determined to work correctly using the Netscape Communicator client.

In addition to running the Portal Server on at least SP3 Hot Patch 1, NTLM authentication will also need to be disabled on the IIS instance running the Web Exchange interface, as described in the following procedure.

To Disable NTLM on the IIS Instance

  1. From the Control Panel, select the Internet Information Services icon.

  2. Expand the default website icon.

  3. Select Exchange (or whatever you have mapped OWA to use).

  4. Click on the page icon with the right mouse button, and select Properties.

  5. Choose Directory Security Tab.

  6. Under Anonymous Access and Authentication Control, choose Edit.

  7. Deselect Integrated Windows Authentication.

  8. Select OK.

  9. Restart the services.
