I have an odd request. Is there a way to create an email account that can ONLY use OWA to get their email. Basically, we want to eliminate the user from using Outlook connected to our servers.
Is this even possible?

Just disable MAPI support on the properties of the user. It is on the mailbox features setting of the mailbox in EMC.

what is suggested by Sembree2 is correct, however i don't quite understand why you would want to disable outlook all together. You will also need to disable POP and iMAP just to cover all your bases. :)

Thanks we have some off site contractors on a special project that we want to give them mail but limit it to OWA only for a variety of reasons. I will test this out and get back ASAP.
