Outlook Web Access (OWA) does not display the Personal Folders that appear in Outlook on your UB-owned computer because Personal Folders are located on your computer's hard disk instead of the server. (Personal Folders are not the same as email folders created in your Exchange mailbox. You can use personal folder files to save copies of your email, calendar and contacts, or to move email off the Exchange server.)
When you try to access folders in a secondary Microsoft Exchange Server mailbox that was added to your Microsoft Outlook profile, you may experience random performance problems. For example:
We advise that the Outlook client (not OWA) be used to create and manage all client side filter rules. Not doing so can produce unexpected results within your set of configured rules.
