Outlook Web Access
Having an Outlook Web Access account has been getting more and more popular these days. It allows users to access their Outlook account through the web. This makes it easier for some people, especially people who are on the move or don’t have access to a main computer. To integrate an Outlook Web Access (OWA) account with your BlackBerry account:

1. Connect to the BlackBerry Internet Service website and log in to your BlackBerry account.
2. On the navigation bar, click Profile.
3. Under Email Accounts, click the hyperlink other email accounts.
4. Click Add Account.
5. Type the email address, user name, and password in the appropriate fields and click Submit.
6. Under Microsoft Outlook/Exchange, select the option for I can access my mailbox using a Web browser (Outlook Web Access).
7. Click Submit.
8. In the Outlook Web Access URL field, type the OWA account URL.
9. In the Mailbox Name field, type the Mailbox name for your OWA account.
10. Verify that your email address, user name, and password are correct.
11. Select the Leave messages on mail server check box.
12. Click Submit.

If everything was setup correctly you will see a green checkbox, if not a red checkbox and you will need to try again.

    Thanks, James. I agree, accessing gmail is cool.

    However, I’m wondering if a BlackBerry 8830 can access OWA in the manner that this article suggests with implementing Blackberry Enterprise server.

    (I have a Blackberry Curve 8330 from Verizon)

    I was having the same problem of being able to view but not open or reply to work emails in Outlook Webmail.

    Once in your Blackberry browser Go to Options->Browser Configuration-> and keep the Emulation Mode as Blackberry

    Then Go back to Options then go to General Properties and UNCLICK the “enable cursor in column view” radio button.

    And I probably already had this but I’m assuming you need to have Column View as your viewing preference when logged into Outlook Webmail.

    This allows me to open AND REPLY to my work email. It doesn’t even have the “sent from Blackberry Device” footer on the emails.

    Try it and let me know if it works for you. Hope this helps!

    Your solution worked for me. I thought I had tried everything. The cursor enabled was what was causing me my issues.

    Thank you!!!!

    Until about a week ago I was able to accees my work e-mail through the MIcrosoft exchange webmail system. There must have been an upgrade in their system. Now all I can do is see that I have e-mail I can not read it or of course reply, since I can not open the messages. I do not have access to a OWA account. I can still read and reply through my desktop computer, but I would really like to be mobile. Is there some way I can adjust my Blackberry8310 to allow me access to read the microsoft exchange server? I just recently did an update to the 4.5 version of my Blackberry.

    Trying to set up work email using Web outlook Access. My work email uses HTTPS.
    Does that stop it working?

    I’m hoping to set it up this way as an alternative way of recieving emails.
    My work email was orginally set up without needing to use WOA but when my password changed and I tried to change the password on the BB it came up with a validation error. I deleted the account and tried to set it up again without sucess.

    Nancyb, go to http://www.operamini.com and check out their website. The way to download and get it to your phone is spelled out there. Once in Opera mini, you will have to type in the server address for your webmailin the search position. Its a little different, but the user name and password pop up and you put in that information and then the e-mail opens. I hope you have success.

    Until about a week ago I was able to access my OWA then I got an email that it wasnt working.

    Ive tried to re set it up but dont know what my server name is or URL or how to get it and Id rather not go to my IT dept to ask for it.

    Is there a way to look it up?

    Hi Amy,

    Usually it is https:///owa or https:///exchange.

    Alternatively, you can try it without the https, and just use http instead.

    I’m interested to know, when a mail is sent from the Blackberry using OWA does the message get sent through the Exchange server (i.e. the outbox) or is it only a copy of the sent message that gets synchronised?

    Basically I am using Microsoft Dynamics CRM with the Email Router, so that our company email get routed and filtered on incoming and outgoing traffic, then recorded against contacts/leads/accouts. However on outgoing from the Blackberry I’m not getting a record in the CRM … but on a reply to the email it records the email against the record (as expected).

    Thanks for any help.
