MS Outlook integration with Portal


Hi Everybody,

We are on EP5 SP5 and trying to integrate Microsoft outlook for general e-mail, calender and also for workflow e-mail notification. There are some issues at the moment with microsoft exchange server architecture which are being looked into. But in the meanwhile I am trying to find out various ways to integrate MS outlook with portal and pros & cons of the each option.

So far I have found 3 ways to do it.

On SDN, there is 'How to' paper publised on creating iViews to access MS Exchange data. It lists 2 ways to do it.

1. Using outlook thick client iview (i.e. using local installation of outlook)

2. Using outlook web access (OWA)

And there is 3rd way of

3. Using business package for communication

I was just wondering if anyone has assessed this before and decided to go one way rather than other. Could you pls. share your thoughts on this?

Thanks a lot,
