Arrangements have been made to accommodate those who work with organizations with whom the university has made arrangements to use these organizations' domain as one's email delivery location.
You can access your Exchange account through any web browser using Outlook Web App (OWA). However, you are able to access additional features if you are using Internet Explorer.
OWA has the option of choosing a "private" computer or a "public" computer. If you select "private" you will be able to stay connected for hours rather than minutes. It is not recommended that you select "private" if you are on a public computer.
Standard Exchange accounts include 1GB of storage space for email, calendar entries, tasks, and notes. To request additional storage space contact the IT Service Center at (303) 735-HELP or email firstname.lastname@example.org. OIT provides Exchange quota increases in 500 MB increments.
You can check your quota by logging in with your IdentiKey at https://exchangequota.colorado.edu/.
