Webmail access to NT server-based file storage folders

I have two Domino R5.05 application/mail servers that I would like to create an "intranet" of sorts on.

My intent is to allow Webmail users to also be able to access their NT Server-based file storage folders.

We currently use WebMailRedirect for the mail files with Custom Login Forms.

How do I allow authenticated Domino users to also authenticate and browse/upload/download NT files?

In regards to your question, a way you may be able to do this is to use Microsoft IIS as the HTTP stack for the Domino server. In this case, via ISAPI, you can rely on NT credentials to be used to authenticate users when they access the Domino/IIS server. All requests to .NSF files will be passed on to the Domino server and all other requests will be treated by the IIS server, which would potentially be able to do what you want, but you'll have to be mindful of the security settings of the IIS server, specially if you let users browse, upload and download files located on the file system.

I hope this helps.
