    Tried searching, but didn't find any existing threads that addressed whether or not the EVO would have access to Outlook Web Access (OWA) through it's mail app. Does anyone know if OWA Access will be a feature? I'm upgrading from the Instinct and, while the EVO kills it in nearly every way, this is the one thing that I'm nervous about giving up because it makes my life so convenient - my work won't let me tap into their exchange environment.

    i had a hard time getting it on my pre, but i eventually started to access it through the web browser, and it works just fine.

    Do you mean set up an Exchange Activesync account through the mail app? From what I've heard, Exchange support in Sense is pretty good.

    Or, do you mean actually access the OWA web site through the browser? Probably, but I'm assuming this isn't what you mean. :)

    Thanks, I was hoping to avoid having to go through the web browser and use the built-in mail/calendar application instead, but I guess the I could always use the web, if necessary.

    Stoli, i posted my last reply before seeing yours. To utilize ActiveSync my company would have to allow that, correct? Unfortunately, they don't. On my Instinct, the mail app is able to access my mail/calendar by going in through OWA.

    I'm sure other people here can answer better than I can, but I would think that if you can input settings into your Instinct, then the Evo can take them too. You're most likely already accessing via Activesync or IMAP. Are you able to get your work calendar and contacts on your Instinct? If yes, then you're on Activesync.

    I hope it works also.

    I currently access my work email via OWA on my personal Blackberry. It doesn't sync my calendar/inbox/contacts, but when an email comes in, I get it a few minutes later. Better than using the browser

    I could view OWA through my Touch Pro using Opera browser or Skyfire (much better if I wanted to reply), so I can't see why it wouldn't be possible with the EVO.

    let me see if i can help as i use Async on two htc phones...

    the htc hero and pro2 (i both own) will access Exchange OTA thru the built in mail app. i access OWA thru the HTC built in app with both phones with no issues.

    touchdown is a very GOOD 3rd party program that will also access OWA.

    the evo will also be able to grab you exchange

    Are you sure about this? I'm pretty sure it's not possible to enable OWA but not ActiveSync. They both use the WebDAV protocol.

    If your company enables OWA then you should be able to add your Exchange account to your phone as a native email service without having to go through the web interface.
