Outlook Web App
With Outlook Web App, you can use a Web browser to access your Microsoft Exchange Server mailbox from any computer with an Internet connection. You can use Outlook Web App with Internet Explorer or many other browsers for UNIX, Apple Macintosh, or computers running Microsoft Windows. In this 2 hour workshop we will start with the fundamentals: logging in, exploring the interface, composing and sending e-mail, receiving and replying to e-mail and basic search tools and printing. Advanced e-mail topics will include using and managing rules, inserting a signature, and customizing the application. We will work with contacts (adding, editing, deleting); and learn how to create a contact group. Next we will explore the calendar feature: viewing a calendar, scheduling appointments and meetings (including recurring), setting reminders, responding to a meeting request, and sharing calendars. Finally, we will see how easy it is to work in the Tasks window: adding and updating tasks (including recurring tasks), and marking tasks as complete.
Prerequisite: A Microsoft Exchange account, and familiarity with browsers and using a mouse.
