You can access Nexus using a program installed on your computer (a 'client'). You will get most functionality if you use a Microsoft program such as Outlook or Entourage Web Services (for Mac). Other clients may not give you the same level of functionality (integrated calendaring, task lists, etc.) but they will all access your emails without problems!
Using a client to access Nexus does not exclude you from also accessing Nexus online using Outlook Web Access (OWA), for example when you want to check your email when you are away from your own computer. You can also connect to Nexus with a mobile device.
