Outlook Web App - OWA

If you are off campus, VLS IT recommends using the Webmail version of Outlook, also known as OWA:


Log in with your VLS User name and Password.

If you are having issues with OWA functionality, especially in IE9, try running your browser in compatibility mode. (Click the little gray "broken page" icon in the address bar.)

Note: Chrome is not fully functional for use with OWA. VLS IT recommends using Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari.
