    OWA 2013- Why? How?

    With Exchange 2013 implementation, OWA (Outlook Web App) is almost a mirror image of the Outlook desktop experience. Therefore there is no reason to continue to support both the web and desktop versions.  By only using the web version you will be able to access email from any computer in or outside of school.

    At Greenwood SD we have migrated to Exchange 2013 for our faculty and staff, our students are using gmail which has a very similar look and feel.  
    Take a look at just a few new features to help make your email experience efficient and easier to navigate around the world of OWA!

    I have created a Getting Started w/OWA guide and posted to the Greenwood website, I hope it will be helpful navigating through the new user interface.

    Conversation View
    Within OWA and Outlook 2013 this is one of my favorite new features.  By default the conversation view is turned on grouping all email messages based on the same subject together. 
    • Change/remove the Conversation View as well as the Reading Pane
    • Look at additional Conversation options

    1. To turn off conversation view, click the drop down arrow next to Arrange by:
    2. Uncheck on the box next to Conversation

    3. When selecting anything in Arrange By: the effects are immediate.

      To re-enable conversation mode, check the box again.

    2.  With a message open, at the top, is a menu including the ability to use Flags, Categorize, move to a folder along with the standard Reply, Reply All, and Forward commands.

    3.  Opening a Shared Calendar, side-by-side is a along waited addition to the web mail experience for many Outlook users. 

    4.  Open another user's Inbox, you can now select another mailbox from the Global Address List and it appears in the Navigation Bar below your mailbox.
    • Right-click on your name within the Navigation Bar on the left and select Open Other User's Inbox

    5.  Mac users rejoice--OWA supports the same experience on a Mac with Firefox and Safari. Previously IE was the only browser used to view full version of webmail. 

    6.  Edit and mange Public Distribution Lists, this is a great addition to webmail.  Attached is a  pdf.  Check it out!
