Microsoft Exchange 2010 Upgrade Information

WEBMAIL – OIT Supported Microsoft Exchange

Outlook Web Access (OWA), also known as WEBMAIL, is a web-based service that allows you to access your Exchange email at anytime, anywhere.  Functions of OWA are limited.  Therefore, functions such as the ability to recall a message or grant delegate access are not available.

WEBMAIL works with most browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari). For non-supported browsers and for users who have low vision there are Light versions of Outlook Web Access (OWA) that look similar, but have fewer or missing features.  Click on the link below to be directed to WEBMAIL.

Password resets can only be performed during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 7:30a – 4:30p CST. Users can send email requesting password reset from their myBama account to itservicedesk@ua.edu.  Afterhours requests will be processed the next business day.
