About the Navigation Pane
The Navigation Pane, located next to the main window, provides one-click access to your Inbox, Calendar, Contacts, Junk E-mail, and Tasks folders, and to your organization's public folders.
The Navigation Pane includes three additional buttons:
- Folders Provides access to all your Microsoft Exchange mailbox folders (Calendar, Contacts, Deleted Items, Drafts, Inbox, Journal, Junk E-mail, Notes, Outbox, Sent Items, and Tasks) and any personal folders you've created.
- Options Allows you to customize Outlook Web Access settings and perform other tasks, such as recovering items you've deleted, setting the local time zone, and blocking Web beacons, a mechanism in HTML e-mail that can make you the target of junk e-mail messages.
- Log Off Allows you to close your Microsoft Office Outlook Web Access session.
Important Logging off and closing the browser helps prevent someone else from using the computer to access your mailbox. This is especially important if you often access your mailbox from Internet kiosks and computers in libraries and Internet cafés.
The Navigation Pane allows you to work in any public folder or Exchange mailbox folder and still have convenient access to other Outlook Web Access features.
Note You can't add items to the Navigation Pane.
