New name, new features for “Outlook Web Access” (OWA)

Outlook Web App (OWA), going forward, will be called “Outlook on the Web”. New features have been added including¬†a new action bar across Mail, Calendar, People and Task experiences; a more prominent subject line; indented reading pane messages are all part of the new “cleaner” UI, according to Microsoft.

The ability to pin messages, Sweep, Archive, Undo and optional single-line view features are all coming to Outlook on the Web, too. Users will get more mail customization options, plus new Calendar additions like weather, visual cues, and mail reminders.


Office 365 business users with Exchange Online who are part of the First Release program will have access first with other Office365 subscriptions getting the features in September. These features will all be available for on premises
