OWA Desktop brings OWA webmail functionality to the user’s desktop, mirroring the desktop Outlook experience, but with the added benefit of a thin client. No more need for a log-on every time a user would like to view or send a message or access their calendar. New mail and appointment alerts, with one-click access to advanced features, are provided to the user in real time. OWA Desktop gives the user functionality they have come to expect and depend on from Outlook and goes a step further by providing time-saving features not found in native desktop Outlook. Other key features include:

  • Advanced New Mail and Reminder notifications
  • Import and export personal contacts
  • Import regional, national and religious holidays
  • Easily manage multiple email accounts
  • At-a-glance status reporting
