I hate OWA - venam - 05-02-2013

Hello *nixers,
This thread is about me beeing frustrated about OWA (outlook webapplication).
I'm in a university that uses this OWA thing to manage almost everything and I recently had a lot of problem setting it up.
I was not able to find how tto set up any rules, nor IMAP, nor SMTP... I just wanted to be able to access my mail from another program then my browser.
here is what it looked like:

What I had to do to make it work is only change the user agent to something more "windows" like and take a look at the same page:

I'm totally against nearly everything related to MicroSoft.
It's great that you could at least add something better.

If you look in the bottom right corner of your first screenshot, they are using a Microsoft Exchange server for their mail. I believe you can add this to any mail client that supports exchange services, ie Thunderbird.

Jayro , I added it in my mail client it's just that at first I didn't know what was the smtp server name and the imap.
Now I won't ever open the webinterface again.

They may not even know what imap is. This is hopeless, indeed!
