OWA Exchange 2010 New look and Features and Improvements

Each version of exchange OWA seems to be improving and new functions been added, in Exchange 2010 , some of these features seems to be, right on the spot. Beside its neat look and easy interface, OWA 2010 is promising....

Users can perform basic search to e-mail they have sent this will give extra information to user , what happen to their e-mails. For instance I can search e-mails I sent to certain e-mail addresses

I am going to search for E-mail I sent to “telnet25@Gmail.com

here is the output from search

I can click on delivery report to see what happen to my e-mail

As you see in the details there are dates showing message is sent successfully to the recipient…..

I think the future is pretty need and intend to give more information to the user in regards to their e-mail and hopefully this might cut off some of the help desk calls

Another Neat future is improvement GALMODE (-:, remember that from exchange 5.5, users are having ability to change their own personal information.

under account settings here is where you can change the personal information

Beside this users can also create Groups and invite others to be member for the gorups they own.

Real smart futures and very useful in my opinion, Exchange team seems to have done great job by making it east to navigate and took more task off the helpdesk and give it to user…….

Nice article! Do you know if OWA 2010 will finally allow users to import contacts directly into OWA? This is a MAJOR pain point to my organization as we have a lot of remote users and all they have is OWA. So when they start and want contacts imported it puts the workload back on me and for 300-500 field staff (high turn over as many are volunteers) it's makes it VERY painful. Thanks!
