Sharepoint 2007 Showing outlook Inbox using outlook active X control

Outlook provides active X interface for displaying out look inbox and simple object tag can be used to show emails from your outlook inbox. It will display your default inbox therefore can even show images that are stored at your pst file.

You may also use this Active X control in Share point 2007 using content editor web part to display users emails but following disadvantages should be kept in mind.

  • Security concerns as it is Active X control
  • Different browser specific and deployment specific issues
  • Look n feel will be different and cannot be branded
  • Will not use Share point security but will show inbox based on outlook configuration

e.g. of HTML is as follows.

<OBJECT classid=CLSID:0006F063-0000-0000-C000-000000000046

  1. I know a lot of funny tools. But no one of them couldn't help me some days ago when I had nearly a dozen damaged emails. Only today I have just found out - how to open pst on a soft forum. It saved me for seconds and completely for free as I kept in mind. Above I knew how the software could convert your mailbox to separate files or to a file of PST format.

  2. This morning I have awoke and opened my MS Outlook. I received some new emails and after that went out. But later on I reopened my tool and was shocked because of all my data was lost. Luckily for me I by chance found a next tool - .pst file cracker in the Google. And it decided my trouble quite rapidly and without charge as I kept in mind and what is more could analyze mailboxes and preview messages.

  3. You are so interesting! I do not think I have
    read something like that before. So nice to discover another person with a
    few unique thoughts on this subject. Really.. thanks for
    starting this up. This web site is something that's needed on the internet, someone with some originality!
