Email clients for UW Exchange Online (UW Office 365)

Email client options

UW Exchange Online (UW Office 365) can support a wide array of email clients, allowing you to use the interface you are most comfortable with.

However, Microsoft provides both the most reliable experience with Outlook on the web (AKA Outlook Web App, OWA) and the richest experience with the Outlook Desktop client (available via the Office 365 ProPlus license). Other email clients like Thunderbird offer a limited feature set by comparison.

UW-IT only supports Microsoft Office ProPlus Office 365 Outlook (32-bit) 2016 for Windows and Mac, configured with one UW Exchange Online account per profile, and with the account configured as an Exchange account (not IMAP or POP). Any other configuration will need to be supported by an Organization Exchange Support Group (OESG).

We recommended the following clients for use with UW Exchange Online – click the links below to view set up instructions.
