Q:What is the light version of Outlook Web App? 
A:

The light version of Outlook Web App provides fewer features and is faster for some operations. You may want to use the light version if you have a slow connection or if you are using a computer that has strict browser security settings. The light version can be used with almost any browser and has the same features across all browsers.
