Microsoft Outlook 2007

Tutorial Homepage for Exchange 

Microsoft Office Outlook Exchange or Outlook Exchange is a personal information manager from Microsoft. Used mainly as an e-mail application, it also includes a Calendar, Task Manager, Contact Manager, and more.  JMU will be using Outlook connected to a Microsoft Exchange Server.  This will enable JMU faculty and staff to share departmental mailboxes, and resources.

Outlook Web App is used to access E-mail, Calendars, Contacts, and other mailbox content through the web. Outlook Web App is connected to JMU's Exchange Server and can be accessed from a web browser. Some of the functionality in Office Outlook is also available in this web "look-alike".
