Outlook Web Access
Outlook Web Access (OWA) allows you to
connect to the Exchange server from an Internet browser to
access your email, calendar, contacts, tasks, etc. You can
access OWA from virtually any computer that has Internet access
Client - OWA offers two versions: Premium
(similar to Outlook), Basic (similar to WebMail)
Premium - If you are using a PC connected to
the University network or using a high speed internet connection
at home and are running MS Internet Explorer 6 then you should
use the Premium client. This provides all of the new Outlook Web
Access features and is comparable to the Outlook office client.
For additional information on how to use the Premium Client
Basic - If you logging in over a slow dialup
line or using a PC with an older web browser, you should select
the Basic client. This version provides fewer features than the
Premium version but offers faster performance. For additional
information on how to use the Basic Client click
Public or shared computer - This option should
be used in a public area such as a shared computer or public
workstation. An inactivity period of 15 minutes is allowed
before Outlook Web Access closes the connection to your mailbox.
If you are working on a long message you should save the message
every few minutes to keep your session active.
Private computer - Select this option if you
are the only person using the computer (i.e. in your own office
or from home). This option allows a significantly longer period
of inactivity before logging you off.
