I need to put a link to the "Connect to Outlook" script on a SharePoint 2010 page. I have built the stssync:// URL that triggers the Outlook sync: stssync://sts/?ver=1.1&type=discussions&cmd=add-folder&base-url=[MyServer]&list-url=[MyList]&guid=[MyGUID]&site-name=[MySiteName]&list-name=[MyListName]
Now the link works fine when pasted in IE address bar. However, I can't add it to a Sharepoint page - if I try to use the "insert hyperlink" button Sharepoint will complain about the stssynch:// protocol "URL must be in the form of http://" (or something to that effect).
I have tried to add a regular link that change the URL by editing the page's HTML. However, Sharepoint removes the link on saving the page.
How can I add the stssync:// link to a page? Is there any simple way to somehow "wrap" it in http or something?
