Chapter 15. Configuring Outlook > Configuring the HTTP Connector

Configuring the HTTP Connector

You can use the HTTP connector to connect to your Hotmail account, or to an Exchange 2003 server which can be configured to securely connect your Exchange server via HTTP. This feature requires at least one Exchange 2003 server to act as a proxy to translate RPC (Remote Procedure Call) communications between the internal Exchange and Active Directory servers into MAPI (Messaging Application Programming Interface)-over-HTTP packets, which are then exchanged with Outlook 2003. It also uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) of HTTPS to encrypt data and authentication credentials to and from the Outlook clients.

Connect Outlook to Your Hotmail Account for the First Time

Click the Start button, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft Office, and then click Microsoft Office Outlook 2003.

If necessary, type a name for your profile, and then click OK.

Click the Add A New E-Mail Account option, and then click Next.

TROUBLE? Click the Tools menu, and then click E-Mail Accounts to start the wizard.

Click the HTTP option, and then click Next

Type in your display name.

Type in your hotmail.com or msn.com e-mail address.

Click the HTTP Mail Service Provider list arrow, and then select Hotmail.

Enter your hotmail or MSN user account and password.

Click Next, and then click Finish.
