According to Connect to Outlook – Tipps und Tricks (English version), it looks like you want something like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/"> <CustomAction Id="RemoveRibbonButton" Location="CommandUI.Ribbon" RegistrationType="List" ...

I found the problem. The server was using a self-signed certificate on a local domain (company.local) When connecting over the internet to that machine the browser (and outlook) trys to verify if the certificate was revoked. This fails because the domain of the certificate is invalid for use of the internet. IE handles this correctly but Outlook doesn't ...

No it's not. The recommended approach is to setup email enabled document libraries for those SharePoint libraries, and just forward your email to the appropriate email address for the library where you want it stored. There is other software that will do this for you: http://harmon.ie/ or SharePoint Workspace.

You need to have Use Client Integration Features permission enabled. By default this is enabled for everybody, but your SharePoint permissions were probably customized and this was disabled. To change this, contact you administrator and ask him to customize permission levels for your group(s).

Short answer:yes overlay the calendars in the sharepoint view. The downside is that this is a temporary setting and will reset on refresh. Better might be to configure a group calendar. See this office article for details.

I found the easiest way to move/copy contacts over to a Sharepoint Contacts list. Navigate to the List in Sharepoint and click on "Connect to Outlook". Now you will have the contacts list show up in Outlook under your contacts tab. Find the folder in Public Folders where the contacts are stored and simply select all your contacts (ctrl+A), drag and drop ...

What version of MS Office are you using? 2003 can support displaying a SharePoint calendar in Outlook, but the sync isn't two way. With 2007 items created within outlook will be added to the server at the next sync. Also, which calendar are the items being added to?

The outlook meeting form is in a client application. The SharePoint calendar is in the web browser. There is no way to trigger the client form from the browser easily. If you still need to do this, you will probably need to: 1) write some sort of script to launch the outlook form (vbs) 2) install a protocol handler (eg outlook://) to execute the script ...

When using forms based auth, you normally have a session cookie. Your browser has one session, and your outlook has another session. They cannot both be logged in at the same time. Previously I have solved this by using TMG. It does the forms auth on the proxy, and it uses a persistent cookie that can be shared across applications. But you may be able to ...

I have never done that, but I might have a hint: If you click the "Connect to outlook" Button in a SharePoint calender, a pop up asks you if you want to allow the program to access MS Outlook. This pop up displays a link that is similar to the following: ...

Nintex Workflow has an action in the Enterprise license that will create a meeting/appointment in a user's Exchange calendar. Look at the Exchange Server Integration section. Out of the box, it isn't going to be possible. If a third party tool isn't an option, then you'll need to construct your own workflow activity or code to do it. I have used Nintex ...

If the SharePoint groups are using AD Security groups, then you can simply send an email to that AD alias from Outlook directly. If you have individul users within a SharePoint group, you can navigate to the group via Site Settings, People and Groups. From there, tick the little box to select all users and select Actions, Email Users. This will open an ...

3000 items in a list is no problem. SharePoint supports up to 30,000,000. See SharePoint Server 2010 capacity management: Software boundaries and limits Viewing more than 2000 at a time degradades performance.

If you have a lot of data to migrate, you could look at third party tools to assist with moving data. I just tried with a public contact list here, I selected all the users, copied them, pasted them into Excel and from there, you can massage any data, and upload it to a contacts list in datasheet view.

First things first: I have not tried this. I can't verify it works. This solution looks like it sends an email with a workflow. Within the email is a link for the event information in .ics format. When the user clicks on the link it should prompt Outlook to create an event within the user's calendar. ...

Additionally, you receive the following error message: ...

It not possible out of the box to copy emails to the list and have them stored in the .msg format (so you can them in Outlook) and also have the email attributes promoted to SharePoint Columns. There are a number of products in the market to assist, including OnePlaceMail where you can use the free express edition or the enterprise edition to save email to ...

No. I don't think it is possible to see fields you add to the Discusion Board in Outlook. One option is to let those who reply type out their choices. If you'd like to do a survey and you don't want your users to go into the browser and you have the InfoPath client, you might try that instead.

We have been developing an Outlook Add-in to accomplish this. ProperSync, can connect a SharePoint calendar directly to an Outlook calendar. Either your personal calendar or a different calendar you specify. If this is interesting, you can find more at www.propersync.com. *Disclaimer - I do work for ProperSync and hope this is a helpful suggestion.

It's by design that list formatting is lost after syncing an item between SharePoint and Outlook. This is because SharePoint lists synchronising with Outlook only support Rich Text Format for their bodies. Since SharePoint saves them as html, they have to be converted. There is no workaround currently.

Yes, I have seen this problem. It worked this way in 2010 as well when the form was actually displayed in the email. I'm not sure what phase you are sending the form in an email and why you are doing so, but in our case, we were having to send the completed form to an external vendor who would take action on it. What we ended up doing was actually taking and ...

This goes along with Carsten's Content Editor answer. For SP2010 if you want your HTML to remain untouched by SP put it it into a text file that resides somewhere on your site (like in the Site Assets folder). Then in the webpart options of the Content Editor just reference your file (/siteassets/myhtml.txt). SP won't rewrite the code, it will just use ...
