There are two versions of Outlook Web App: the 'Full' version, and the 'Light' version. Which one you see depends on what browser you use to access Nexus.
The difference between the versions has been significantly reduced since Nexus was first introduced. You can use either version to access your email, addressbook/contacts and calendar. You can also share your calendar and view calendars shared with you. The Full version offers some additional features, such as sharing of other items than calendars and a somewhat different way of displaying shared calendars.
To access the Full version of OWA, you must use a recent browser such as
Safari 5 and
Opera) can only access to the Light version. OUCS cannot
alter this discrepancy between browsers.
All users who wish to access their Nexus account via the web are recommended to read the Getting Started With Outlook Web App document. This will give you a introduction to how the system works. A more complete overview of the system is also available below.
