Note: Exchange 5.5 is well past its natural support cycle, therefore neither we nor Microsoft is supporting it. This content will remain for reference use only. Because Exchange 5.5 is no longer supported, some of the content linked below many no longer be available.
Outlook Web Access (OWA) allows any client with a compatible browser to access Exchange Server folders.
OWA for Exchange Server 5.5 is also a development platform using the rendering engine in CDO. Using the Outlook HTML Forms Converter, you can convert Outlook forms to HTML forms, but any code behind the forms will have to be converted by hand to use CDO. The latest version of the Forms Converter can be downloaded as part of Exchange Server 5.5. Service Pack 4.
For newer versions of OWA, see Outlook Web Access to Microsoft Exchange Server
Exchange Server 5.5 OWA supports mail/post folders in both the user’s mailbox and Public Folders, plus the Contacts and Calendar folders in the user’s mailbox.
