Outlook Web Access Adapts to Smartphones, Tablets

A new version of OWA, with some HTML 5 tweaks, can now more easily adapt to various screen sizes. Got a smartphone,  a slick new iPad or (later this year) a Win 8 machine? OWA will actually be readable. Because there are three major form factors, (PC, tablet and phone), there are now three different form factors (premium, light and mini).

Here's the rub: For now, smartphones and tablets are only officially supported if they are running Windows 8. Happily, iPad and iPhones work with the preview version of OWA, and official support appears to be on the way.

OWA also supports offline use,  which is a huge deal. Crank away on e-mail and, when connected, all your masterpieces will be sent off straight away!
