Outlook Web Access?
I need to know if there is a Mail Client that asks for a Username and Password when it is run, and uses that username and password to auth with a mail server?
Outlook you have to click through various different options before you can enter different user details, Thunderbird is similar.
All I want is a simple username and password box, nothing more nothing less.
Once thing I thought of doing was writing a script that popus up a username/pwd box, then using that sets up outlook/thunderbird in the registry for that users account, and finally loads it, would this be a viable option?
Outlook Web Access?
Yes, a webmail system would seem to be what you want.
We have a webmail system in use already, staff just dont seem to want to use it, because theyre not given a login box as soon as they use the laptop.
I'm a bit confused by this.Originally Posted by Samson
It seems the staff want to click the icon for a mail client and be presented with a login box, then be taken to their mail?
This is no different to clicking a shortcut to the login page of the webmail server...is it?
I have the same confusion as you, but this is apparently what they'd prefer.
You could always have it launch the webmai login windows as soon as they log in?
Just make one up using a script - they won't know the difference..... ;0)
Use a scheduled task to launch IE and open webmail when they login
can probably stick in a shortcut to the web address for your email into the startup menu on the computer, you can also set properties for it to keep it minimised etc when it launches.
From what I understand it seems your web mail client uses AD to authenticate and log them in automatically dependent on the AD login credentials used?
What web mail client are you using? Perhaps the client has an option to prompt for a username and password instead of fetching the details from AD?
Write an AutoIt script to pop up a dummy username and password box before launching the webmail. Just discard whatever they enter and carry on loading their already authenticated mail See how long it takes anyone to actually realise... By then, they'll be used to it and happy
