Microsoft Outlook Web Access
  With Microsoft® Outlook™ Web Access, users can access data on a 
Microsoft® Exchange Server computer using an Internet browser (that
supports frames and JavaScript) from a UNIX, Macintosh, or 
Microsoft® Windows®-based computer. Web Access provides Web-based 
public access to Microsoft Exchange Server public folders and the 
global address list. Authenticated users can log on to their 
personal accounts to read private e-mail and send messages. Using 
Web-based public folder access, an organization can build private 
and public discussion forums on the Internet and private intranets. 
Users can publish information on the Internet without having to 
manually convert documents to HTML format. With an Internet browser,
users specify the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) using HTTP to 
access the virtual root for the Microsoft Exchange Server computer. 
Then, after providing the proper logon credentials, they can access 
their mailbox and public folder data. Microsoft Exchange Server 
data is translated by Active Server Pages into HTML and transmitted
to the browser using HTTP. Browser access to Active Server Pages 
through HTTP is controlled through the Microsoft Exchange 
Administrator program. Access can be granted on a per-user basis or 
made available to any user through anonymous access.
