Webmail that works just like MS Outlook.
Included in Exchange and Office 365 Plans.

Outlook Web App

Don’t lose productivity by using the basic webmail interface offered by most e-mail hosting providers. Outlook Web App (OWA) webmail offers the rich look-and-feel and productivity features of Microsoft Outlook when you manage your e-mail from an internet browser. You can get such Outlook on the Web as part of Exchange Online/Office 365 plans, or as part of Apps4Rent’s Hosted Exchange plans. In the Kiosk plans, OWA mail works similar to a POP3 e-mail account but with advanced webmail features including Exchange ActiveSync. With hosted Exchange plans, OWA as Exchange Webmail includes unlimited mailbox size, advanced synchronization of e-mail, contacts, calendar, and tasks with desktop mail clients and mobile devices. Sign up today for as low as $2/mailbox/month.

For companies that need advanced and flexible hosted e-mail options, OWA mail is another tool in the arsenal. For a really low monthly price, you can give each of your employees an option to use a productive Microsoft Outlook like interface while working from home, office, or other locations such as internet cafes, field or branch offices. This standardization across the company improves security, decreases training and support costs, and eases any future upgrades.

Apps4Rent allows its e-mail hosting customers to customize plans for individual employees. So a company can pick standalone OWA accounts for most users, and hosted Exchange plans with Exchange Webmail for power users who need advanced synchronization features.

Microsoft has gone to great lengths to provide almost the same experience and features in OWA as available in Microsoft Outlook for managing e-mails, calendar, contacts, and tasks. For a demonstration of these new features see the Microsoft support site.

Here is the list of some of the features included in OWA, now known as Outlook on the web:
