What is Outlook on the Web (OWA) ?
Outlook Web App, Outlook on the web or Outlook Web Access (OWA), is a technology developed by Microsoft for accessing email mailboxes via a web browser and is a webmail service that connects to a Microsoft Exchange Server. The web browser interface of OWA hardly differs from the Microsoft Outlook client itself. It runs on all modern browsers, PC, Mac, Linux and iOS/Android.
Starting with Microsoft Exchange 2003, Outlook Web Access is much broader than a pure browser-based access to Exchange. Via HTTP and HTTPS other services are tunneled as well. For example to connect mobile devices like cell phones and PDAs with ActiveSync. This allows those devices access via wireless networks, such as GPRS, UMTS or HSDPA.
This makes the OWA technology ideal for use outside the office.
