    Simple rule with OWA. If you can't see it then it cannot be done.
    There are a few exceptions using third party tools - Messageware have a suite of things for OWA that can add a few features but I don't think this is one of them.

    The feature you are talking about is an Outlook feature, not an Exchange feature.


    If your question has been answered, please remember to accept the answer and close the question.

    I think the MSFT article covers this quite well.  You have them all you need to do is flip out of cached mode on your full client then they will be 'tranferred' to the server.

    Hope this helps
