Webmail and Outlook

Hi all,
I see that Outlook 2003 supports HTML email accounts like hotmail.com out of
the box. Was just wondering if there is a way to use this feature and make
outlook connect to the web-interface of Exchange server instead of making it
connect to Exchange directly..

Any ideas/suggestions ?
Thanks and regards,
Vinil

you can. Just use the URL of your OWA. Just for the record; this is also
possible in Outlook 2002.

Why? The direct connection is more efficient, especially in cached Exchange mode.

Outlook 2002 could connect an HTTP account to OWA using the same URL as in your browser, but Microsoft officially does not support this technique. I haven't tried it in OUtlook 2003.

Not only is it more efficient to use a direct connection, HTTP only supports
mail folders. You cannot use Calendar, Contacts, Note or Tasks when you
connect using HTTP.
