Outlook - Remote Access (Web)

Use Outlook Web Access (OWA), an entirely web-based email interface to access your email when you are away from your desktop computer. You need to have:

  • A connection to the Internet
  • A web browser. Any web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, ,etc.) will work. However, Internet Explorer provides many enhanced features that aren't available in other web browsers.
  • The examples in this document are from Internet Explorer and Windows XP.

NOTE: Outlook Web Access works best in Internet Explorer, but will work in other browsers as well.
