Accessing your Exchange Account Remotely
Return to main Exchange 2007 Support Page

If you are not at your main work computer, there are 3 different ways to access your Exchange account remotely.  


Outlook Web Access

Outlook Web Access allows you to check your Campus Exchange account using a web browser.  Outlook Web Access gives you quick access to your email, calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes stored on the Campus Exchange Server.  You will not be able to access content stored locally on your computer (i.e. Personal or Local Folders).   

For full Outlook Web Access functionality you will need to use an Internet Explorer Browser, version 6 or later.  If you use an older version of Internet Explorer or another type of web browser, some Outlook Web Access features may not be available.  


Outlook Anywhere

If you are away from your main work station for extended periods of time, you may not want to use Outlook Web Access as your main method of managing your Campus Exchange account.  One solution is to configure Outlook on another computer so you have the full functionality of an Outlook client and to access your Campus Exchange account.   

One of the new features of Exchange 2007 is Outlook Anywhere.  This feature allows you to configure Outlook on another computer to access your Campus Exchange account without having to also use a VPN.   

Before you begin, contact your IT Support group for information on how to set up and Exchange account in Outlook.  You will also need to get the Exchange Proxy Settings and the Proxy Authentication Settings for Outlook Anywhere. 

Once you are ready, click here for basic Outlook Anywhere configuration instructions. 

 


Entourage 2008

Entourage is part of the Office 2008 for Mac suite.  You can configure Entourage to access your Campus Exchange email account from off-campus. 

Before you begin, contact your IT Support group for information on your Exchange account.  You will need:

  • Your e-mail address
  • Account ID
  • Password
  • Domain
  • The name of your organization's Outlook Web Access server
  • Authentication information

Once you are ready, click here for basic instructions on how to configure Entourage to access your Campus Exchange Account.
