Hi, I'm Gini Courter. Welcome to Outlook Web App 2013 Essential Training. Outlook Web App, which is also called OWA, is the Web version of Outlook, Microsoft's popular email program. In this course we'll start by checking out the OWA interfaces then begin creating and sending email messages including attaching files. I'll show you how to view, print, and respond to the messages that you receive. We'll look at how to use categories and other tools to manage your messages and keep your mailbox organized.

I'll show you how to track information about colleagues and others by creating contacts either from scratch or by using information from the email messages in your inbox. We'll see how to use the calendar features for appointments and meetings, and I'll show you how to share your calendar and view multiple calendars using OWA. And finally, we'll see how we can use OWA's tasks feature to manage all the pieces of work that we don't place on our calendar. Along the way, we'll look at new features for OWA 2013, and new apps that you can add to the OWA app itself.

We'll cover all these features, plus plenty of other tools and techniques, in Outlook Web App 2013 Essential Training. Let's get started.
