When you are at home or traveling, you can access your Exchange calendar and email. You can log in to Outlook Web App (OWA) or you can use an Exchange client like Outlook.
Outlook Web App (OWA) is available at https://email.brockport.edu and offers the same core features as are available in Outlook, including mail, calendar, contacts, tasks, shared calendars, vacation automatic replies, safe sender lists, checking your Exchange quota, and more.
