Logging in to Outlook Web Access using PHP

P: n/a
hi,

Does anybody know if it's possible to log into Outlook Web Access
using PHP?

I mean, if I have the username, password and email address I need to
have a link that opens directly into Outlook Web Access inbox or
something. Is this possible, and if so, does anyone know where I can
find more information on how to do this?

Thanks.

OWA is extremely heavy in the javascript area, and unless you're terribly
masochistic a simple CURL system to use it is IMHO out of the question
(not undoable, just terribly trial-and-error & time consuming). If you
need this kind of functionality, I'd look here
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...EXCHG.80).aspx, and use
SOAP.

All I want to do is make it so that the user is not prompted for the
HTTP Authentication when they click the link that takes them to the
OWA page. There must be some way to pass the authentication
credentials to the page somehos using PHP?

The problem is that once authenticated, OWA will pass you back a
cookie, session ID, or similar, which will reside on the server
running the PHP script.

You then have to try and feed that to the users browser/PC, but I
can't think of any way of doing it. It's probably not possible for
security reasons, anyway.

Do you want to access Outlook Web access pages using PHP or just
redirect the user to Web access pages somehow pre-authenticated?
