Supported Desktop/Laptop Email Clients:
UL Lafayette Exchange Online (UL Lafayette Office 365) can support a wide variety of email clients, allowing you to use the interface you are most comfortable with.
However, Microsoft provides both the most reliable experience with Outlook Web App (OWA) and the richest experience with the Outlook desktop email client (available via the UL Lafayette Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus license). Other email clients such as Apple Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, etc. offer a limited feature set by comparison and are unsupported.
The IT Service Desk supports Outlook Web App (OWA) and Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus Outlook for Windows and Mac, configured with one UL Lafayette Exchange Online account per profile, and with the account configured as an Exchange account (not IMAP or POP).
