We would like more of our users to be using OWA instead of the full Outlook client but there are a few things missing in OWA. Setting OWA as the default mail client is one of them so that when a user clicks on a mailto: link on a webpage it will allow them to sign in to their OWA account and send the email instead of giving them the "there is no default mail client configured".
When you do a name search in an address book you MUST press the enter key or click the magnifying glass icon. It doesn’t search “real time” like the client does
Notification of new messages on desktop when you are signed into OWA
I have two Exchange accounts registered in Outlook, one for Company A (e.g. my employer) and one for Company B (e.g. my client's firm - I'm a consultant).

They cannot access shared folders or shared address books because of this either
You can create rules in OWA but the steps and windows are different than the client which confuses people.
Why not make actual "automatic" out of office replies based on user connectivity and automatically forward to any of the following:
> The distribution group the user belongs to (Small groups)
> User Selected member(s) of his/er distribution group (Larger Groups)
> User Selected member(s) (Non grouped users)
> Administrator Selected member(s) (Non grouped users)
If non-invitation email is received in Outlook with scheduling information, user would have the option to go to the File tab and save it as an Outlook Calendar event with email subject line, narrative, any attachments, and room at the top to edit further by the user. User would modify day and time and other data fields as necessary. Current Alternatives: Include creating Outlook Calendar Event with email attached or ...more »
