It is possible to access shared calendars and mailbox folders using Outlook Web Access (OWA). To do so, follow the steps below.

Note: You will need to use Internet Explorer 6 or higher to fully utilize some OWA features, like accessing shared calendars and mailbox folders. Using any other browser (Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, etc.) will force login to OWA Lite which only has a basic set of features.

1. Log into OWA with your own account email address and password.

2. Click the down arrow drop down menu next to your name in the upper right corner.
