Can I use outlook to pull email from my OWA account?

Hi
Not sure if this is possible.   I have an OWA account.  My smartphone connects easily enough.
but, what I would like to do is "pull" the email using outlook and store on my pc

so, is there a way to setup outlook 2013 to connect to my OWA account ?
if so, how can i do this
thanks

It depends what type of EAS service you are using, If it is your corporate exchange email server, it will not work, if you are using hosted services check with service provider. The activesync option works only with outlook.com or hosted sites. If you are using windows 8 you can use native mail app to retrieve emails using activesync.

Active Sync should work, just choose go through the manual setup and choose "Outlook.com or Exchange ActiveSync compatible service."

Yes it is possibe; in fact that' how I read my OWA email.

Go to new account setup, and set it up.  If you need help, shout.

Yes, but don't include the /exchange or whatever you use to get there directly over the web, Outlook will add that in.

Odd if you use OWA on your phone, possible that EAS is disabled or it's an older version of exchange on your mail server,  Do you use OWA through the browser on your phone or is it really mail app, or something of the sort using activesync?  IMAP would probably be the only other option other than setting up a VPN or ssh tunnel to connect to exchange directly.

No, they didn't.  Get the EAS error "server can't be found"

Your account is on exchange 2007, Email access form outlook 2013 using ActiveSync will not work. You need to create Exchange account, you can access exchange account externally only if your admin has RPC over HTTP enabled, if the option is not configure then you need VPN connection to exchange server.

That worked for me. Try it. Only Microsoft knows why (and why not m.outlook.com)?
