TIP: Corporate email via Outlook Web Access (OWA)

If yoaur organisation has OWA installed that comes with Exchange, you can get at your mailbox on the run.

The URL is something like this:

http://webmail.yourcompany.com/exchange/US...x/?cmd=Contents

Obviously replacing the domain name and username with correct details.

OWA then detects your browser as a non Win32-IE and delivers a frameless page that you can use to read and send email. You can get at other folders too by changing the "/inbox/" bit to the relevant path.

I've tested this under Exchange 2000 with the default version of OWA (there's also a downlevel browser specific version that I haven't tried this against).

Haven't managed to get attachments working though :D

Have fun!

Another option is to use the trimmed down graphic free version as supplied by www.leederbyshire.com

This is great on low bandwidth products. I use it all the time as it's a very secure product when used via SSL.... I have given up using Microsofts OWA on my pc as well as OWAPDA is so much faster.....

That would entail getting my company to:

a) part with $95 for the product...

and

:( install/configure the software...

and even

c) security audit everything before letting the likes of me play with it...

I'd have more chance of getting them to install Microsoft Mobile Information Server (which they already have a license for). Maybe in the new year.... then I can synchronise Pocket Outlook properly instead of mucking about with browser based shenannigans.

Actually, that is by far the favoured option. The only chance I've got of making it a reality is to convince the relevant project manager that he needs an SPV. (I've nearly succeeded in that, so it could

actually happen...)

:D

They are two different things really as MIS is a serious bit of kit that needs a dedicated piece of hardware for a large install which can cost money to maintaine...

OWAPDA is not platform specific and can be used via ANY web browser so travelling sales teams could check their email/calendar/contacts on and internet enabled system from anywhere....

MIS is a good product but if the SPV was out of network coverage, nothing would happen and the user would be stranded...

Another option that some companies do take into account is that using OWAPDA instead of local syncronization (active sync) is that if the device is lost or stolen, no company secrets are stored on the device.... Its all on the server safely tucked away behind the corporate firewall....

They are VERY different solutions that offer fors and againsts.....

:D
