One of the reasons that I like SharePoint is that it helps remove boundaries between Office and server products, allowing us to provide the user with more of the information they need. There is no better example of this interconnectivity than displaying mailbox items in the user's browser.
In this chapter, we will learn about the opportunities that exist to embed information from our Exchange Server within our SharePoint site. By way of example, we will be adding our tasks list to the site, but it is also possible to add other Exchange information such as calendars, contacts, and of course email.
When adding this functionality, there are a few configuration changes that may be required. We will examine these so that if you meet these hurdles when implementing your solution, they can be easily overcome.
