Connect live tile to Office 365
I'm now trying to connect the calendar and email live tiles to Office 365. I've looked at the documentation and think i've got it all set right, but I get an error when I wait for the live tile to update. the error is unauthorisied in the left hand side.
My hapconfig.xml has the following lines in.
For the live tile I have the following code.
<SMTP server="myoffice365FQDN" port="25" enabled="True" ssl="True" from="Home Access Plus" fromaddress="email@example.com" user="" password="" exchange="myoffice365FQDN" />
Are these right? Do I need to insert a user name and password? If so which ones?

The exchange url needs to be the url that you use for outlook web app:

Hi Nick, i've used amxprd0410.outlook.com i=for the SMTP and the exchange addresses, is there a certain port I need to be using?

I would of thought that you could use, outlook.com/domain
for example: https://outlook.com/my-company-domain.com

@EduTech just tried that, didn't work, thanks for the idea though. After a bit of reading it looks like SMTP from office 365 uses TLS on port 587, I did read something about setting up a SMTP relay which I think i'll try tomorrow.

Did you ever succeed with this? If so could you give me some guidance on how you set it up? Any print screens or steps? Cheers

You can try setting up an internal SMTP relay on the server you are using to relay the SMTP traffic up stream.
The live tile uses EWS to get the live calendar/emails, so it'll be https (443) and the url of the outlook server.
It should work.
In OWA, The help menu usually has the client connection details listed for SMTP data, it may be that your county blocks the SMTP traffic from connecting to the outlook server (if you are using OWA or outlook it doesn't use SMTP, it uses MAPI)

Also try using "outlook.office365.com" as the server if you are using the Office 365 service which it appears that you are.

Excuse the dumb question but why does SMTP need to be setup for the LiveTile to work?
How does the LiveTile authenticate to know which mailbox to look at? :-S

SMTP isn't needed for the live tile.
The live tiles use EWS, which should be the same url as OWA

How does it authenticate though? Do is use the HAP logon details?

You need to supply a EWS administrator username and password, or it will use the username/password of the logged in user.

How does it know which mailbox to get the stats for? Is it the one set in their AD profile?

Good question I don't know. It should read the mail attribute from AD
