What is Outlook Web App (OWA)?
If you have an IU Exchange account at Indiana University, you can use Outlook Web App (formerly Outlook Web Access) to access your IU Exchange mailbox using a web browser. OWA provides basic email functionality through a web interface to a secure site, allowing you to read your email from anywhere without having to reconfigure a browser or email client software. OWA is available at:https://www.exchange.iu.edu/
On the login page, enter your Network ID username and passphrase.
By default, OWA will open the Inbox folder; you cannot change this. For purposes of security, your session will time out after six hours of inactivity.
OWA looks and feels very similar to Outlook 2010 and 2007. You can send and receive messages and attachments, create folders and organize messages within the folders, view calendar appointments and contacts, look up names in the Global Address List (GAL), set up the Out of Office Assistant, instant message using the IU UniCom service, and more. For more about features available in OWA, see Outlook Web App.
Note: OWA has the same functionality across major
browsers in most cases. For help using OWA, with your Inbox displayed,
