Office 365: Outlook Web App & Internet Explorer 8

by Henrik Walther [Published on 20 Aug. 2013 / Last Updated on 20 Aug. 2013]

If you are engaging with customers that are migrating or upgrading to Office 365 (wave 15), make sure they get an ideal Outlook Web App (OWA) experience by upgrading to at least Internet Explorer 9.

Although Internet Explorer 8 is supported, it's important to note your end-users will get a far from ideal experience with OWA if they are using this browser version. We have recently published this KB article explaining the issue:

Slow Outlook Web App performance when accessed through Internet Explorer 8 in Office 365: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2871314

Said in another way, friends don't let friends use Internet Explorer 8 to work in OWA, unless they are good with using OWA light.

Until later,
Henrik Walther
