OWA Webmail is an iOS mail client app. It can connect to an Outlook Web App (OWA) server.
What is an OWA server? If you have access to a Microsoft Exchange server you usually use Microsoft Outlook on your desktop PC. This connection is through an internal net. If you are on the go you usually are not able to use Microsoft Outlook. There is an extension to Microsoft Exchange server to give access on the internet through a web interface (webmail). This interface is called Outlook Web App.
OWA Webmail uses this web interface to access your mail on your iOS device, so you do not have to concern yourself with IT security issues and protocols. The app does not sync anything with your device, all messages, contacts etc. remain on your server.
NOTE: It is not a general webmail client, so you cannot use it for Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo mail etc.
IMPORTANT NOTE for OFFICE 365 users: The app uses the light version of OWA, so "Outlook Settings", "Options", "General", "Outlook Web App version", "Use the light version of Outlook Web App" checkbox must be checked.
Supported OWA versions at the moment:
- Outlook Web App 2010 (tested with version 22.214.171.124)
- Office 365 (tested with version 126.96.36.199)
NOT SUPPORTED by current version:
- attachment upload
- features that are not supported by OWA ligth interface
Ratings and Reviews
DO NOT update to this new version
Do not update to this new version, it said bug fix but it limit free version to basically make the app useless unless you paid for the pro version. Now the free only let you see that you got new mail, you can not read new mail or send message. And still have ads
Don't update to this version
I have used and loved this app for a long time as it let me view email, meeting invites and calendars on the go. I updated to this version and now I can only set up the app to see either email or inbox through the settings. There is no longer a toggle button which is what made this IMO a must-have business app that was worth the $. I also continue to have an error message pop up regularly which is annoying. Bummer.
Paid version is good. But needs improvement.
To the author hope you can include the face recognition and fingerprint recognition in the nxt update. Make the free version not too limited so more people will be encourage to buy the paid version.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
