Login to a Shared Mailbox using OWA (UTA Exchange E-mail)

Description:

Departments can have shared mailboxes and users can choose to share their mailbox with other users.  If you have been given access to one of these mailboxes (you have been setup as a delegate), you can view e-mails and/or send e-mails on behalf of that mailbox based on your permission level.  The instructions for accessing such a mailbox are very similar to the way you access your own.

Available To:

  • Faculty (currently appointed) and Staff
  • Departments and Offices at UT Arlington

How to Use:

  1. Go to UTA home page  and locate the e-mail login box in the bottom left corner.  Alternatively, you can also access OWA directly.

  2. Click your appropriate status: 'student' or 'faculty/staff'.

  3. Type the shared mailbox name or the NetID of the person sharing his/her mailbox in the Check E-mail box and hit [Enter] on your keyboard.

    If your browser is properly configured and functioning, a pop-up login box will appear on your screen

  4. Enter your NetID and password. Click Login. Do not type your e-mail address or the address of the shared mailbox.

  5. You should now be logged into the shared mailbox and based on your permission view different folders and/or send e-mails on behalf of the mailbox.
