    I access my outlook work mailbox at home by using Internet explorer in windows and going to my web based outlook box. I can do it on safari, but the functionality is very limited. I tried downloading an app that says it emulates Internet explorer, but it didn't work right. Is there any app anyone knows of that would give me the functionality of Internet explorer for my web based outlook? Thanks

    There is an app called the Atomic browser and it costs a whopping 99¢! With it, you can emulate any of the Safari browsers, Firefox or IE6, 7 or 8. My work also uses the web-based Outlook mail system and this browser does work.

    Thanks so much. I downloaded the app, but I don't see any difference between what it is allowing me to do vs. Safari. How do I get it to emulate explorer?

    Both iCab and Atomic are rated very well. For either you need to go into the settings.

    Atomic: Select the gear icon next to the http pane and select "Settings". Find mid-way in Settings "Identify Browser As" and choose one, hopefully it'll give the same functionality.

    If this fails to work then most likely the failure is due to a limitation with the iPad and it's browser capabilities. I have yet run into any issues with Atomic emulating IE or Firefox though so I;m sure it should work.

    EDIT: I was typing this at the same time as lumberjak and he got there first!

    Open the browser and click on the Settings icon (The thing that looks like a little gear just to the left of the URL entry box). This will bring up a box with the various settings. Select the bottom one that, oddly enough, says Settings. At the bottom of the top box, select the Identify Browser As option and this will bring up another screen. Tap the last line that says Internet Explorer 8 then tap Settings in the upper left corner of the screen the Close in the upper right corner of the next screen.

    Clear as mud, eh?

    Atomic was a great suggestion. Worked like a charm.

    I'm guessing you meant PDFs? Does your work have restrictions? I can access work OWA from home too, but we cannot open up attachments on the web client ever, even in IE.

    Just to be clear, there are a number of features to OWA that only work with an actual Internet Explorer. Of course, because Microsoft likes putting in proprietary features. Therefore even if you identify the browser as IE those features will not work. If you are used to using OWA with Chrome, Safari or Firefox on the desktop then you may not be aware of these features.

    Still, the iPad browsers give sufficient capability to use OWA for most of your needs.

    Why can't you set up the mail to work as exchange ( see the mail setup on the ipad). I do that from my iPAD and have access to my outlook mail at work. Works great.

    I downloaded Atomic and I love it as a browser. The tabs alone are worth the price of admission. But even when I change "identify browser" as IE 8, I can't get Outlook to work. The full version of Outlook rather than just the light version shows up, but nothing works.....can't open an email, go to calendar or even log off. My employer restricts enterprise acces to our browser from anything other than a work-provided device, but I thought that wouldn't matter in trying to access the web version

    Anyone have any ad ice for me?

    Outlook Web Access on Ipad

    Outlook Web Access on Ipad
    I spent hours last night trying to get mine to work. I downloaded Atomic Browser and paid the .99 cents. I still could not get OWA to open anything in my email window. It was just stuck. I could do nothing but look at it!

    I then read another post here and followed that advice. Just go to Settings - Mail - on your Ipad and ADD another mail account. There is an option for Microsoft Outlook Web Access. Follow the prompts and it authorizes your OWA account and you're in! I work for a government agency with high security and had no problems.

    Voila ! Works like a charm. Just like I'm looking at my desktop. The only little drawback is that you need to enter a passcode because you are automatically logged into your email. My AOL mail and OWA mail are in the same window and I just toggle between them both. Very simple.

    Atomic Web Browser solved many other issue for me on my work website however. Very much worth the .99 IMHO !

    Arniep,

    Why not just set-up an Exchange Account on the settings page for your Outlook mail. It took less than two minutes to set-up and now I have access to my Outlook email and calendar. Highly recommended!

    Does Atomic let you sync your Outlook Web Access calendar?

    No, it's just a browser, not a mail/calendar client. IF you have OWA, you should be able to get the iPad email client to work. Just go to Settings, then Mail, Contacts & Calendar and setup an "Exchange Account" Enter your email address, domain, owa server name (example: owa.MyCompanyDomain.com) and your password. It should sync up.

    I have in the past, had to turn the SSL option off, then on again to get this to work the first time, but SSL should be turn on and it should go. IF it dosen't, recheck your setting entries and turn the SSL option off, then on again.
