OWA on android

when you have outlook web access open in Android, is it possible for it to give a vibration or sound to let know that there is a new mail? (i know this is a default sound in desktop, how about mobile devices)?

Have you cconsidered usong push mail voa activesync ?

As far as i know owa doesn't interact directly with the phone so wont trigger the vibration
If you're using OWA on a browser that's not Internet Explorer, you can only use the "light" version - that means, no public folders or outlook style look and feel.

You can configure Exchange email on Android devices so it appears as messages on your smart phone.
ActiveSync (or POP3/IMAP) is required for the phone to "know" when it receives an email from Exchange.
Any update?
