How to check email when away from the office

Visit http://outlook.obu.edu from any web browser to check your campus email.

Mailbox full or mailbox closed

In Outlook, not only e-mail but calendar items, notes, tasks, deleted items and sent items contribute to the account quota.  Regularly clean out sent and deleted items to avoid a full mailbox.

Note:
Attachments you receive with e-mail also contribute to the size of your mailbox.  If you need to keep sizeable attachments, save the attachment separately from the e-mail message, then delete the message or remove the attachments.

To save an attachment:

  1. Open the item that contains the file attachment you want to save.
  2. Right-click the icon for the attachment, and then click Save As.
    Select a location for saving the file, rename the file if desired then click Save.

Note:  If the item includes more than one attachment, choose Save Attachments from the File menu to save all attachments.

To delete multiple items:

  • Press ctrl+a to select all items, then press the delete key on the keyboard
    OR
  • Hold the ctrl key and click individual items to select, then delete
    OR
  • Click the first item in a list, hold down the shift key and click the last item in a list, then delete.
