The primary e-mail client for Engineering users is Outlook. Outlook (Exchange) email, addresses and calendars may also be accessed through a campus website called Outlook Web App (https://cas.auburn.edu).
Faculty may install Microsoft Office on any computer. If you are using Outlook from off campus from a slow connection, you should use the Outlook Web App website to access your mail. If you have a high-speed connection, you can use the same Outlook client that you use on campus. You may pick up a CD from our Office (270 Ross Hall) with Microsoft Office 2010 on it.
