OWA Quick Guide

Outlook Web App (OWA)

Outlook Web App is a browser-based email client accessible from the Internet. It allows you to check your email from computers that do not have an email client (such as Outlook or Entourage or Apple Mail) installed.

It works from most modern browsers (Internet Explorer 6+, Firefox 3+, Chrome and Safari for example) on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux computers. For non-supported browsers, OWA offers a light version that looks similar, but has fewer or missing features. You may also want to use the Light version if you have a slow internet connection.
