Webmail Guide

The webmail can be accessed by going to the link on the Portal page, by typing the

address http://webmail.dameallans.co.uk

As you can see in the image above, this is the  login page for the webmail. Outlook Web App or OWA is provided by Microsoft which allows us to fully Integrate the email system into the rest of our systems.


Logging In

To log into the webmail is easier then ever. All you need to do is enter

the Username and Password which you use to log into the computer.


You are given 3 options when logging in:


This is a public or shared computer Select this option if you use Outlook

Web App on a public computer. Be sure to sign out when you’ve finished and

close all windows to end your session.


This is a private computer Select this option if you’re the only person who

uses this computer.


Use the light version of Outlook Web App The light version of Outlook Web

App includes fewer features. Use it if you’re on a slow connection.

Outlook Web App Basics

For anyone who has seen or used Microsoft Outlook or a similar email client then this will

look familiar.



Outlook Web App gives us a list of our folders on the left i.e. Inbox, Drafts, Sent Items, etc.


In the middle we have the list of emails. The emails grouped by date, the first line shows the

subject and under this is the sender.


On the right is the Reading Pane. This displays the currently selected email.


In the example above you can see that we are in the Inbox. We have selected an email with

the subject Laptop Bookings and the full email is displayed on in the reading pane.


To create a new email, click where it say’s New and a new email window will pop up.


You will probably also notice that there is a disclaimer on the email. For legal reasons this

disclaimer is automatically placed in every email which you send.


In the bottom left corner of the screen you can see a small menu listing: Mail, Calendar,

Contacts, Tasks.
