In outlook 2003 you have the ability to create an outlook account using HTTP mail reading. Is there anyway I can setup my computer's outlook 2003 account to access the web address of OWA to pull the mail?

I know this feature works for msn, hotmail, etc.

Thanks for your help.

    Are you wanting to pull from a different Exchange server?  Or just to have Outlook open items which aren't understood to be opened with OWA instead.

    If it's the latter, then Open Outlook, Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options... > Custom Forms > Web Services... and tick the top box and add the URL to your OWA server.

    If its to pull from a different exchange server, you should use RPC over HTTP.
