Another innovation from Office 365!!! It is possible for desktops and laptops to receive e-mails without internet connection by Outlook Web App. We couldn’t even search in web-browsers w/out internet but now, it is possible to receive e-mails and to organize the calendar. You need Outlook Web App offline mode feature to use this. While Outlook Web App is working in offline mode, if you connect to internet, the users will automatically be online. To use this feature, users need Internet Explorer 10, Safari 5 or Chrome 24 web browsers at least. While using the offline mode, there are some restrictions not enabled. Users can use the features below in offline mode ;
