On June 7, Microsoft will be upgrading our Office 365 service, bringing many new features to the Office Web App.

New features include:

  • A new, modern interface.
  • Full support for mobile browsers (including full calendar support).
  • Offline email access in supported web browsers.
  • Inline message composing, drag and drop attachments and merged calendar views.

Some notes about what to expect during the service upgrade:

  • You should not experience any email interruptions in Outlook or on mobile devices.
  • If you happen to be checking your email with the Outlook Web App when your email account is updated, you may need to sign out and then sign back in.
  • You won't need to change anything on your computer, in Outlook 2010, or on any mobile device you use.

After the service upgrade, you'll notice some immediate changes to the Outlook Web App. To learn more about the upgrade and see some screenshots of the new interface, visit What's new in Outlook Web App.

Again, this upgrade will not affect staff using Outlook 2010 or any mobile device to access their email.
