What are the Client and Security options for?

The new e-mail server provides more options such as type of client log in (premium and basic) and security settings (public or shared computer, and private computer).

Client Options

  • Premium Client Setting View

    The Premium Client needs more bandwidth or high speed access and has complete Outlook Web Access (OWA) options. As a premium client, you can customize the way you view your e-mail.

  • Basic Client Setting View

    In contrast, the Basic Client's window is fixed, i.e., it cannot be customized. As a result, it is better to use this option when hooking up to the Internet through the dial-up service because it needs less bandwidth.

Security Options

You may also choose between Public or shared computer, and Private computer settings. The difference is in the default e-mail auto log off inactivity time.

  • Public or Shared Computer Setting

    When you choose the Public or shared computer option, you will be logged off automatically in the e-mail system after 15 minutes of inactivity. It is best to choose this option when many people use a certain computer.

  • Private Computer Setting

    Choosing the Private computer setting risks your computer from being accessed by other people. Choose this option only if your computer cannot be physically accessed by anyone in the duration of your session. In the Private computer setting, you will be logged off in the e-mail system after 24 hours of inactivity, by default.

I accidentally deleted some items in my Outlook Web Access account. How do I recover them?

Items deleted in your Outlook Web Access account go to the Deleted Items folder. If the items you deleted are again deleted from this folder, they may still be recovered, but only if the items’ recovery time hasn’t expired. Remember that deleted items are recoverable only for a limited time. The amount of time an item is recoverable is configured on the computer running Exchange Server. (For more information, contact a System Administrator in your organization.)

To recover deleted items, follow these steps:

  • In the Navigation Pane, click Options.
  • Under Recover Deleted Items, click View Items.
  • In the Recover Deleted Items dialog box, select the item(s) you want to recover. If the item(s) you want to recover is/are no longer there, it is likely that the recovery time has already expired for that item. 
  • To return the selected items in your Deleted Items folder, click Recover on the toolbar, or click Permanently Delete to permanently delete/destroy the items.

Another option is to access the link below. This is also only applicable within 7 days from the time the item was deleted. Beyond 7 days, the item would’ve expired and can no longer be retrieved.

Note: Replace <username> with your username

How can I set up E-mail Security in Outlook Web Access?

You can help make your e-mail messages more secure by using a message encryption protocol called Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension (S/MIME). With S/MIME you can digitally sign your messages to help protect them from tampering while in transit. The digital signature also certifies to the recipient that the message is from you. You can also encrypt the message contents to help prevent unauthorized recipients from reading the message.

To use S/MIME with Outlook Web Access, you must have the following:

  • Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 2000.
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or later.
  • A computer that allows you to download and install the S/MIME Control
  • Valid digital certificates for sending digitally signed e-mail messages or receiving encrypted email messages.

To download and install the newest version of the S/MIME Control on your computer, under E-mail Security, click Download. If an older version of the control is already installed on the computer, under E-mail Security, you may need to click Re-install to update it.

When the control is installed on your computer, the toolbar on the new message form will contain the following buttons:

  • - Allows you to digitally sign the message.
  • - Allows you to encrypt the contents of the message, including attachments.

To remove the S/MIME Control:

  • In Control Panel, select Add or Remove Programs.
  • In the list of installed programs, select Microsoft Exchange Outlook Web Access S/MIME, and then click Change/Remove.

How can I reduce unwanted mail with Junk Filters?

Unwanted e-mail can get through corporate filters. Help keep such mail out of your Inbox by using Junk E-Mail filters. These filters send e-mail identified as junk to a separate mail folder.
To configure your Junk E-Mail settings, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Options link, and then click Junk E-Mail.
  2. Select Automatically Filter Junk E-Mail.
  3. If desired, add e-mail addresses to the Safe Senders list.

Notes:

  1. Review the Junk E-mail folder periodically to ensure that no legitimate messages have been sent there. If they have, adjust the filter to avoid flagging such messages in the future.
  2. Use other tabs on the Junk E-mail page to manage the Blocked Senders and Safe Recipients lists.
