- Good: Most features will work.
- Light: The browser will display the light version of Outlook Web App.
Different browser combinations and if possible use the browser to support best
Light Outlook on the Web
If your device can only support the light version, Outlook on the Web is still very useful as it provides most of the main functions but with fewer features. For example:
- You can read and send email but it doesn’t have its own spell checker.
- You can schedule appointments or meetings but not view your calendar by week or month.
In addition to this, the light version is HTML-based, which means it can work better with assistive technologies such as screen readers.
As a student, you can redirect your CCCU email to another email account. To do this, please follow these steps:
- Log in to your CCCU email account, and click on the settings cog at the top right hand corner of the page.
- Scroll to “My app settings” and choose “Mail”.
- In the left hand pane, under the “Options” menu, choose “forwarding”. Enter the address that you would like to redirect your email to and then click “Start Forwarding”.
In order to save a backup of your emails, we recommend you tick the option to “Keep a copy of forwarded messages in Outlook on the web”.
