Outlook Web App

Exchange 2010 brings a brand new version of webmail that provides a rich, Outlook-like experience on any web browser, including Firefox, Safari, and Chrome.

What's New

No More Pages: You can scroll through all of your messages in a folder without having to advance through pages. It doesn't matter whether you have ten or ten thousand emails in a folder, it just keeps going!

Advanced Search: Make advanced searches by specifying criteria such as "from:" or "to:", just like the full version of Outlook.

Favorites: Your favorite folders from Outlook appear in the same place on webmail.

Conversation View: By grouping messages from a single conversation together, the new conversation view enables your users to quickly identify the most recent messages and the chain of responses.

To turn Conversation View off click Arrange by Date and uncheck the Conversation button.
