Outlook Web Access is a full-featured, web-based email client with the look and feel of the Outlook client. With OWA, users can access their mailboxes from any Internet connection regardless of whether or not the computer is equipped with Outlook.

OWA provides most of the same functionality found in Outlook, including the familiar, easy-to-use interface, and the essential tools needed to create a professional email (spell check, signatures, HTML support and more).

In addition to email, OWA allows users to access their calendars, contacts, tasks and folders through a secure connection, just like they would in the office. Users can also search their old email, set up or edit out of office notifications, manage junk mail settings, and more.

OWA also supports a wide range of file types including Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint slides, PDF files and more. With OWA, users can access these file types even if the program the file is derived from isn’t installed on their computer.

Intermedia hosted Exchange customers can access their mailbox through OWA by navigating to the unified login page, selecting webmail and entering their email address and password.

Link to unified login page: https://exchange.intermedia.net/ControlPanel/Login?ClientType=WebMail.

Make sure you are not logged in to HostPilotĀ® Control Panel or My Services when you log in to OWA, as this may cause problems due to cached information in your web browser.

Note: Unified login page is compatible with following web browsers:

  • Internet Explorer v. 9 and later
  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Safari

OWA can also be accessed via direct OWA URL for your Exchange server. The URL has the format of https://Your_Exchange_Proxy_Server/owa (e.x. https://west.exchXXX.serverdata.net/owa)

To find Your_Exchange_Proxy_Server account administrator needs to navigate to HostPilot  > Home > Exchange servers and settings > Exchange proxy setting

Important: it is a known issue that in OWA 2013 the users cannot download .xml attachment. As a workaround, the end-users can open the .xml attachment in Outlook or the sender can send .xml file in .zip format.
