Although Microsoft's Outlook Web Access is one of the most widely used e-mail programs available, it is also one of the least compatible with other programs and devices. This creates problems for users with multiple e-mail accounts, particularly when those accounts are connected to a smartphone or other portable device. In spite of OWA's lack of compatibility, it is possible for Thunderbird 3 users to sync their data across both platforms.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Download and install a plugin for Thunderbird that allows compatibility between Thunderbird and Web-based e-mail applications.

  2. 2

    Download and install an additional OWA-specific plugin for Thunderbird that is compatible both with Thunderbird and the web-mail plugin you installed previously. Ideally, it's better if you download both plugins from the same developer to ensure compatibility.

  3. 3

    Configure your account in Thunderbird. Click "Tools," "Account Settings," "Add Account." Enter the information for your account. Select "webmail" as the account type.

  4. 4

    Reboot Thunderbird. If your e-mails have not synched, you may need to adjust additional options for your individual network. You can find these options by clicking "Tools," "Add-ons," "Webmail-OWA," "Options."
