To offer users of Outlook Web App (formerly known as Outlook Web Access) the best possible integration of MailStore Web Access, you have the possibility to add a MailStore Web Access button side-by-side to the Email, Calendar, Contacts, etc. buttons. If a user clicks on the MailStore Web Access button, it opens inside a new browser window.

Please note: The following instructions refer to Exchange Server 2007 and 2010 only.

To add the MailStore Web Access button to your Outlook Web App, follow these steps:

  • First download from the MailStore web site.
  • Decompress its contents to the Outlook Web App customization folder. Depending on your Exchange Server installation, this might be one of the following folders:

    Important: If you already have customized anything in OWA, make sure that you don't overwrite the UIExtensions.xml file. Merge both files instead.
    Exchange 2007
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\Owa\forms\Customization
    Exchange 2010
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\ClientAccess\Owa\forms\Customization
  • Open the file UIExtensions.xml with your favourite text editor (e.g. notepad.exe)
  • Replace the MailStore Web Access URL with the correct URL of your MailStore Server (e.g. http://mailstoreserver/)

    Hint: If you are using Windows authentication, add the /n/ to the URL (e.g. http://mailstoreserver/n/) to bypass the login screen.
  • Save the changes and close the editor.
  • Execute the following command to restart the Internet Information Server (IIS):
    iisreset /noforce
  • Now you should see a MailStore Icon in the Outlook Web App navigation bar.
