Outlook Web Access provides users with
access to e-mail, personal calendars, group scheduling, and
collaboration applications through a Web browser. Outlook Web
Access offers cross-platform client access for roaming users and
users without access to their own computers. Outlook Web Access was
introduced in Microsoft Exchange Server version 5.0 to provide
access to Exchange from any browser. Outlook Web Access for
Exchange 2000 Server has been redesigned to make it easier to use
and more reliable.
Outlook Web Access is not an installation option; it is installed
automatically when you install Exchange. If you do not want to run
Outlook Web Access on your Exchange server, you need to stop the HTTP virtual
server, which will disable HTTP services on the computer
hosting Outlook Web Access.
