Hi every here:
I'm new here as every can see. I have a big problem and I leave you
here to see if any can help me. In my University the administrators
use MS Exchange as Mail Server. This server for public users like me
have SMTP/POP3 and IMAP service close. So I'm just ask if is possible
make a plugin or something to use MS Exchange WebMail service with
WebMail extension. ¿How can I get the code without using SVN?
Cheers and thanks in advance

Download this (http://webmail.mozdev.org/owa.zip). It's a generic
Webmail extension, it will install and respond to calls from
Thunderbird. You need to customize this extension for your domain

1) Add your domain to
file owa.js
line 77

2) Add the login url to
file nsOWAPOP.js
line 77

Hi again:
I try to setup the WebMail extension in Linux but I can get this to work. It's possible use this on Linux or is just for Windows? Another little thing: exists any manual for configure the OWA extension?

Cheers and thanks again

That extension does no more than install in to Thunderbird and respond
to Thunderbird commands, you need to provide the login and download
code.

Hi:
It's me again. I try to setup the extension again but I can't get this to work. I'm seeing inside the files OWA.js and nsOWAPop.js and I found a POP server. I have a little question about that: What's happen if this MS Exchange Server doesn't allow connections to SMTP/POP3 and IMAP? I haven't access to this.

Cheers and waiting for a reply

The extensions doesn't connect to Exchange using POP it uses HTTP.

I should write a full login url (https://security.testdomain.com/
owa/)? Or only a part after the domain name (/owa/)? Please give an
example.

> 1) Add your domain to file owa.js line 77
I can simply write domain name (like "security.testdomain.com") in
this line?

Thanks.

HTTPs is not a problem. The new line number is 91

Use the URL you enter into the browser

This version has been hard coded to a domain, you must add your domain
and login url.

I just moved to a new workplace which does not support IMAP or POP,
but OWA only. I am a thunderbird user, and would like to get TB
working with this server. I have tried unsuccessfully to following
this thread, but could not get the owa addon to work.

The link http://groups.google.com/group/thunderbird-webmail-extension/web/owa-0-5-0.zip
does not work.

However, I downloaded owa.zip (owa-0-0-1.xpi), and edited the files
you suggested. However:

1) The is no file nsOWAPOP.js, but rather owa/components/nsPOPOWA.js

2) Not sure what you mean by editing line 91 for https

3) I also edited nsSMTPOWA.js line 78 to include the URL of the OWA
server

4) I installed the addon but it said that it required additional
items.

A few more questions: Where is the username and password entered?

Thanks.

Hello all.

I followed your post...

I have an access to an Exchange Server and I am trying to configure a
webmail extension for use with Exchange (via RPC/https)

You seem to be using OWA... but the last link is dead... :(

Could you repost it ?

Thx
GS

Dos the extension need "webmail.xpi" to be installed

Ok I configured the OWA extension properly for my domain

In the log file, I get the HTML code of my login page....

But I get a timeout for "connecting to localhost...."

What's the next thing to do ?
