Reason Three: More flexible access to your email

Why Outlook/Exchange? Reason three says that Outlook/Exchange will give you simpler and more flexible access to your email whether you're at work, at home, or on the road.

Today: You most likely use a combination of Eudora on your work computer, ISU Webmail and/or Eudora on your home computer. And possibly ISU Webmail when you borrow someone else's computer. Because most of your email is stored on your main computer, you need to check settings (if you use Eudora on your home computer too) to make sure that you are leaving mail on the server so that it's also available when you're back in your office, or, if you use ISU Webmail, you need to remember to periodically go in and clean up the extra copies of email that Webmail generates.

With Outlook/Exchange: In Outlook/Exchange, your most current email is stored on a central server; you see the same email whether you're accessing Exchange via Outlook on your primary work computer, through Outlook and VPN from your home computer, or through the Exchange web interface when you're on the road. In addition, the web interface for Exchange also gives you access to your calendar, your tasks, and your meeting schedule.
