At IU, why am I having trouble logging into Outlook Web App?
When trying to access your Indiana University Exchange Inbox in Outlook Web App (OWA), you may see one of the following error messages:
OWA was unable to get to your Inbox.
OWA failed to log on to mailbox.
The Microsoft server is down or the HTTP service has been disabled by the administrator. Please try your request again later.
- Make sure you are using the correct URL for the OWA service:
- You must have an IU Exchange server account to use IU's OWA service. Check the status of your accounts; you should see "Microsoft Exchange" listed. If needed, see At IU, what are Exchange accounts, and how do I get one?
Note:As of January 12, 2016, Microsoft has ended support for Internet Explorer versions prior to version 11, unless you are running Windows Vista SP2 or certain versions of Windows Server; for a complete list of exceptions, see Microsoft Support Lifecycle. UITS strongly recommends that you upgrade to a new operating system if your current system does not support Internet Explorer 11 and is not on Microsoft's list of exceptions.
- Check your account information to make sure that you are using the correct username and passphrase.
- If you still can't access your IU Exchange account using OWA, try using Microsoft Outlook or the Exchange client to access your mail. If you cannot access your account using these clients, there may be a problem with your account, the IU Exchange server, or your local networking. Contact your IT Pro or campus Support Center.
