My guess is the available fields are coming from A/D.

There are no default fields in AD.
Anyway, is it possible to edit which fields are available in the owa Account Information editing page?

Of course there are default fields.  You don't have to create them when you create a domain.
As I said, I think the fields you are seeing are canned in A/D and/or Exchange.  You can add custom fields in A/D.

Allright, but extensionAttribute1-15 and P O Box are default fields then. Why are they not available?

You may have to re-enable editing of MyAddressInformation in the Role Assignment policy.  To check if it is currently not set, using the ECP you would go to Manage my organization, Roles and Auditing, then User Roles. Double-click on Default Role Assignment Policy. Make sure MyAddressInformation is checked as well any others you may want the user to update.
Hope this helps

gkrew - That was useful. Unfortunately it seems like owa doesn't use P O Box as an address field and extensionAttributes aren't there either.

Simple rule with OWA - what you see is what you get. If you don't see it in OWA then it isn't possible to get access to it. You might be able to modify the page yourself, but then that modification would be lost if any updates are applied to the system and would be unsupported by Microsoft.
