Outlook in SharePoint or Website

In SharePoint you can use the standard web parts for displaying e.g. your outlook inbox or tasks. This web part is actually quit limited. Use the following tags for better (end) user experience:



<P>
<OBJECT classid="CLSID:0006F063-0000-0000-C000-000000000046"
width="100%">
<param name="Folder" value="Inbox">
</OBJECT>
</P>
<P>
<OBJECT classid="CLSID:0006F063-0000-0000-C000-000000000046"
width="100%">
<param name="Folder" value="Tasks">
</OBJECT>
</P>

Those tags shows a control displaying your inbox and tasks.

See more information at My Calendar in SPS Home Page. Note: you should have Outlook installed on the machine that you are using to view the SharePoint site or web site.

Hi Rajesh,

Working with a 64 bit IE is not recommended for SharePoint. It is a 2nd level browser. See my other post about this topic
