Office 2010 and Basic Authentication on IIS fails to open documents


I have just upgraded my Office 2007 to 2010 (yes the RTM build) and am 
running into some serious trouble accessing documents stored on a web server 
or SharePoint server configured to only allow Basic Authentication.
Word opens as expected but does not do anything else (no prompt, no document 
download, nothing). Accessing any Office document on a server or SharePoint 
2007/2010 server that has e.g. Integrated Windows authentication enabled, 
all is good I get prompted for credentials and the document downloads and 
opens as expected and as in Office 2007.

Where is the setting or registry key to make Office 2010 work with IIS and 
SharePoint configured to only use Basic Authentication? This can't be gone! 
I know this is less secure but in an Intranet environment acceptable. This 
is causing major trouble and a resolution or hint is greatly appreciated!

Thanks for a hint

Try this solution:
open "regedit"
go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\Internet
Create a registry key called BasicAuthLevel as a DWORD
And set it to 2

It works for me.

OWA and IIS Lockdown
Hello all - I am running Exchange 2000 on a Windows 2000 box. I am wondering if running the Microsoft IIS lockdown tool to secure the server will effect Outlook Web Access.

Outgoing mail fine from Outlook, fails from IMAP
We've got Exchange 2003 running, and everyone can connect using Outlook or OWA and can send mail with no problems. I just configured the server to allow IMAP access, and that works well for some mobile users and Outlook Express users - for reading their mail. However, outgoing mail (outside our Exchange Server) seems to just disappear. The IMAP users have "requires authentication" turned on, and there are no errors returned to the IMAP client. I also cannot find any warnings or errors on the Exchange Server - the messages just never get sent. I've been through the ...

Can Import Email Data Filed from Office XP to Office 2003
My HD failed but I had a backup of my Office XP Pro personal file folder with a lot of emails I needed. The file is about 128MB in size. I put a new HD in and installed Office 2003 Pro.
