Vmail: Outlook Web Access Login Choices

7/14/14 - New instructions on how to sort your email in OWA have been added.

The Vmail Outlook Web Access (OWA) log-in page has two security options that allow you to indicate if you are using the software on a public or private computer. Your choice could be different depending on where you are. Please review the choices and their behaviors below:

Public or shared computer
Select the public option (blue hi-light) if you are checking mail on a public computer that will be used by more than one person. Examples of a public computer include clinical workstations, computers in a public place, those shared in an office, and kiosks.For security reasons, the public computer option logs out of email after 30 minutes of inactivity. In addition, it does not cache email addresses when you send messages.

Private computer
Select the private computer option (green hi-light) if you are the only person who uses that computer.The private computer option logs out of email after 8 hours of inactivity. And this option does cache email addresses when you send messages.
