Outlook Web Access

By golfinak ·
We are thinking about using Outlook Web Access. I have been trying to find some information on it, but have not had much luck. Do you have any suggestions. We were looking for information on how it works and
installation. I was also looking for comments from people who have used
it or are using it. I would like to know if there are any problems with it.
Any help would be great.

Here is a link directly to Microsofts white paper, "Planning and Deploying Outlook Web Access". If the link doesnt work (they never do when copied and pasted from answers), do a search at www.Microsoft.com for for that exact name without the quotes,click the first link it brings up. Also, on the first page of this whitepaper is another link to the Troubleshooting Guide for OWA. Both are great white papers.

Wedeployed it and didnt have many problems.

Sure enough, there is a space between the h and i in whitepapers that shouldnt be there.

Outlook Web Access requires that you be running the IIS server (Internet Information Server).

The Outlook Web Access comes with Microsoft Exchange Server. It is not loaded by default! You have to run the Exchange Setup again and use the custom installation to install it.

The most difficult part of using Outlook Web access is getting thru your companies firewall.

You have to have an IP address that the user can access from outside the firewall that gets them to the Exchange Server computer.

You asked for info on outlook web access, said you had no luck finding info...I provided a link to the white paper describing the product and how to deploy it.
(which you summarily rejected without explanation...)

Comments on it...It is from microsoft, it is bloatware. Top heavy and insecure, with features often not documented. it integrates with IIS/Back Office to provide HTML web schedule and calander support via outlook client. As a back Office module it is subject to trojans and worms such like back Orifice, and consequently patches, fixes, and security updates must be maintained strenuously...

is that better?

Good luck with it...

Boy I'm sorry I had to leave real quick and I thought I had left your first one under rate this answer. Every answer helps and your comments here show me that you don't care much for OWA and this is the information I'm looking for thank you and again I'm sorry.
