WHS Outlook Settings

I would like to introduce everyone to a new add-in I’ve written for use with the Windows Home Server V1/2003. It’s called WHS Outlook, and just as its name suggests, it allows you to use Microsoft Outlook (2010, 2007, or 2003) from your Windows Home Server.

Basically, you install a copy of Microsoft Outlook directly onto your Windows Home Server. WHS Outlook will then allow you to access the installed copy of Outlook directly from the Windows Home Server Console application, using a customized remote desktop connection from the desktop of any client computer that is attached locally to your home network, or you can access the installed copy of Outlook from almost anywhere using the Internet Explorer web browser.

WHS Outlook is great for accessing your Microsoft Outlook mail, calendars, contacts, and tasks while you are away from home, on vacation, etc. You get full access to all of the features of Outlook, without having to install a copy of Outlook on every machine that you want to use it from. Your installed copy of Outlook (and all of its private information) remains safe, and secure, at home on your Windows Home Server while you access it remotely from almost anywhere in the world!

After installing a copy of Outlook on your Windows Home Server, and making sure that it is set up and running properly, you then install WHS Outlook in your Windows Home Server Console (just as you would any other WHS add-in), enable the type of access you’d like to use (User Accounts access for local access to Outlook from all of the client computers across your home network, and/or Web Site access for web access to Outlook from almost anywhere using just a web browser), and then select which users you would like to be able to use WHS Outlook. That’s all there is to it.
