7. Using an Email Client

Although Nexus Outlook Web Access interface is very simple to use, it is really geared to "online" working where you have an active connection to the mail server. For some people, particularly those on dial-up connections over a phone-line, this may be inconvenient or expensive.

As an alternative, you can access Nexus using a more specialised email client program such as Outlook, Entourage or Thunderbird. Such programs usually provide support for "offline" working so that you can review or reply to messages without currently being connected to the server.

Setting up an email client program involves a bit of work in entering configuration information about your email server and account details.
