By grouping messages from a single conversation together, the Conversation View enables you to quickly identify the most recent messages and related responses. Conversation View is always preserved, even if individual email messages are located in different folders in the mailbox. By treating an entire group of messages as a single conversation, they can be managed, ignored, moved or deleted as a whole. New messages that are part of a conversation you have chosen to mark as "ignore" are sent straight to the deleted items folder.

Filters are now easier to apply from a convenient drop-down menu with common options.

Using advanced queries in Outlook Web App, you can use searches such as "from:", "to:", "has attachments:" and many others to specify filtering criteria and more quickly find the messages you are looking for. Favorite searches can be saved and accessed at the click of a mouse, providing faster access to information.

All messages are on one page, so you can scroll through every message without having to advance through pages, enabling you to more efficiently access messages and scan conversations to find the communications you are looking for.

Sometimes an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. MailTips warns you before you do something you shouldn’t, like sending a message outside the organization, to a large distribution list, to someone who is out of the office, with attachments that are too big to deliver and so on—preventing embarrassment, saving time and reducing the possibility of compromising sensitive information. With MailTips, you can be more efficient and more professional in email communications.

Inline reply gives users the ability to reply to an email from within the reading pane of the inbox without popping out a new window.

Outlook Web App allows you to share calendars with people inside and outside of CDU. You can view multiple calendars side by side in Outlook Web App and use the Scheduling Assistant to schedule meetings with people inside and outside the CDU.

Sharing calendars with friends and loved ones has never been easier. With Exchange 2010 and Outlook Web App, you can publish your calendar for anonymous access. Users can also print out a calendar showing day, week or a month view.

Users can now choose from 27 built-in themes in Outlook Web App for personalized communication experiences. Organizations can also create custom themes to strengthen their brands or customize parts of the user experience to give users easy access to important links, sites and features.

New device display sizes such as those found on netbooks, tablets and smartphones offer mobility but force users to get work done on ever-smaller screens. Outlook Web App has been redesigned to make better use of these new device screens, from easier button access to optimal display of message information. Even users with larger monitors can benefit from these new optimizations and get a better Web-based email experience.

You can expect to get the same great Outlook Web App experience no matter what your favourite web browser may be, Internet Explorer 7 and later, Firefox 3 and later, Safari 3 and later, and Chrome 1 and later.

There are 2 options available for accessing shared mailboxes through the new Outlook Web App.

  2. Type in the name of the mailbox (or browse for it by clicking on "Name...") and click "OK".
  3. You will be prompted to accept the language and time zone for the mailbox. Accept this and the shared mailbox will be opened.
