Re: Virtualbox, Exchange 2007/MAPI, and ZUNE
Outlook will work properly once the networking issue is solved. Zune, I do not know.
My use of networking is mainly through the wireless on my laptop. I travel a lot, so much of the time I am attaching to some hotel or coffee shop WiFi. I use network manager on the laptop.
I do not know if you have looked at the help files. There is some good information there. In regards to networking, try Help -> Contents -> Sun xVM VirtualBox -> Virtual networking.
In my case, I tried to get my wireless working directly under VirtualBox (Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 32 bit). That did not work so I tried to get my Ethernet card to work directly also. That did not work, either. Then I read sections 6.1 and 6.4 in the help, and changed to the PCnet-FAST III adapter type and NAT as the attached to type. I left the MAC address alone (my laptop wireless was active at the time). That did not work either! Then I went back and checked the Cable Connected box. After this, the networking worked properly.
On the Windows side, I use obtain an IP address automatically and obtain DNS server address automatically for the Internet Protocol. The adapter is labeled AMD PCNET Family PCI Adapter which became available after I made the selection in the VirtualBox Settings for the virtual machine.
I wrote a post for VirtualBox 3.0.4, it may be of some help. I use Hardy 8.04.3 AMD64. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1231646
