>> Is it possible to use Outlook Web Access account via Outlook (PC Access)?

Outlook Web Access is a web-based method for accessing an Exchange mailbox.
Outlook Web Access requires Exchange because it's part of Exchange. There
really is no such thing an an "Outlook Web Access account". It is an Exchange
account. You don't set up accounts in OWA.

Outlook is a PC-based client used for accessing an Exchange mailbox, a POP
mailbox, an IMAP mailbox or a WIndows Live mailbox. Clearly, then, given an
Exchange mailbox, one can use either Outlook Web Access or the Outlook client
to access that mailbox. In Outlook you can create an Exchange account - an
account that uses your Exchange credentials and the MAPI protocols to access
the same mailbox that you can access using OWA. Does this answer your
question?

only if the OWA url begins with http:// - it will not work with https://
accounts. And you need a version of outlook that supports the HTTP protocol.

Yes. It's called RPC over HTTP/HTTPS. There are some configuration changes
that must be done on the Exchange server, network and firewall. When
completed, you can use Outlook (full functionality) to access Exchange
mailbox.

Note that this only works with Exchange 2003/2007 and Outlook 2003/2007 and
only if the admin enables it.

It's very unlikely our company will give me any special privileges

The company have just moved to Outlook Web Access (from Outlook) and i
personally find it unusable - most of the features i use daily are not
included (10 jillion messages per day and no filters???)

i have since learned there are two versions (chopped & full versions)

OWA software wasn't installed on my PC - i just accessed it directly via
internet explorer - so now i'm wondering how do i get the full version if
'no' version has been installed?

Tough luck.

What features would those be?
>> i have since learned there are two versions (chopped & full versions)

Versions? Where did you learn that from? Are you referring to OWA Light
option on the login web page? OWA Light gives you fewer features but faster
access. Slow connection and older/non IE browser work best with OWA Light.
>> OWA software wasn't installed on my PC - i just accessed it directly via >> internet explorer - so now i'm wondering how do i get the full version if >> 'no' version has been installed?

That's the great feature of OWA, no software setup needed on the client PCs.
It's a web "application". All you need is Internet Explorer version 6 or
later (for full feature) or any other web browser (Mozilla, Safari etc).

Think of other web based email such as gmail, yahoo, hotmail. You don't have
to install any software on your PC to access your mailbox. OWA is another
web based mail.

Great it maybe but i missed something there - how do i get full featured
version (incl message rules, 1 month calendar layout, 1 week alarm on
appointments, etc, etc ,etc) when 'no' version was installed in the first
place?

Buy it or talk to your Exchange (or Network) admin about where you can install
it from.

There is nothing for the client to install - it's all done on the mail
server. If you have a mail account hosted on Exchange 2007, use IE as your
browser to see the full version of OWA. Otherwise, you need to get an
account with a hosted Exchange provider such as intermedia.net.

Feature Comparison Between Outlook 2003, Office Outlook 2007, and Outlook
Web Access 2007

Keep in mind that OWA does NOT offer 100% of Outlook features. There are
some missing features in OWA that you'd find in Outlook. If the above link
does not answer your question, you should be directing your question to your
Exchange administrator or IT department.

The same way you get your mitts on the full version of any pay-for product.
You buy it.

Amazon sells it.

Correct. The admin needs to enable it.
