Outlook On Rt Or Pro

Recommended Posts

Dewain27

I am going to post pictures later, but wanted to share.

 

I work for Microsoft and I wanted to share this little known feature of Windows 8 or should I say IE 10.  First things first.  If you have an Exchange 2013 account then you have access to something called Outlook Web App.  This is the web-browser version of the Outlook client.

 

If you would like on RT or on Windows 8 full to get offline access to your email, then you simply go to the settings button, which is in the upper right hand corner of the interface.  The icon looks like a gear.  There is a something called offline settings.  This will allow you to walk through the steps to allow you to simply go to the site, which I pinned on my RT, and it will allow you full access to your email.  It works just like Outlook in offline mode.  This is an amazing option for people that have an O365 account or Exchange 2013.  Again you have to do this from IE 10.  You can choose which one the modern UI or desktop UI, however it only works in the version that you do it in. You can do it in both, but I would reccomend doing this in only the one you plan to use.

 

Enjoy!!!

Click Turn on Offline Access and Click OK

Click Yes that you are the only person using this computer (assuming that this is true). Then Click Next.  Not recommended to do this on PCs that you are sharing with others.

Make sure you read this as my browser asked the question later in the process, however you need to accept the settings change as it tell you on this and click next...

Again this is information on how to save the link to Favorites, but I suggest pinning it.  I have that below.

That's it... Now you just click OK.  The rest of the instructions work for you to see the other options that you might get from pop ups and pining the site.

If you go in the Modern UI version of IE and click thumb tack icon you can pin OWA to your start screen, which I recommend.

And yes... you DO have favorites in IE 10 Modern UI

That is a nice alternative but shouldn't be required. Just put outlook on the RT and stop wasting time on the crappy email client.

 

 

 

Once again Microsoft just doesn't get it.

I guess you don't understand what this post is about.  This is how OWA a part of Exchange can be brought offline.  As for the for Outlook as a full client, there are power considerations and really we need to wait to have the new UI clients before those issues are addressed.  The new mail client that has just been updated as well for RT and Pro have most of the features that the 90% want.  I think patience is something that needs to happen by many consumers.  It is hard to turn the ship overnight.  It is even harder to build the world's leading Office Productivity suite for a version of Windows that was not even out yet.  I really think we need to wait a year before we complain or pony up the cash for a Pro or just get a Clover Trail machine if full Office is your desire.  Don't miss the purpose behind RT.  It does plenty more in the productivity world compared to the iPad.

The Mail app on my SP is now my go-to app for checking email. It's connected to my email server using IMAP (POP3 isn't enabled in the app anyway, but that doesn't bother me). The major issue I have with the app is that it seems that it's not possible to move emails from one folder to another.

 

For example, I sent an email from the app this morning (interestingly enough, to MS Surface Advanced Support). After sending, I wanted to move it from the Sent folder to my IMAP Microsoft folder. Didn't see a way to do it.

On my Surface RT, in the Mail app, swiping from the top brings up menu choices at the bottom. One of those is Move. Touch move then touch the destination folder.

Thanks schoondog. Now why didn't that work the first time I tried it.

If the email is open, I don't think you can move it.

      Figure 1 – HPE ProLiant ML30 Gen9 on static mat ready for Windows 10 pro x64 install via iLO4
       
       
       

       
      Figure 2 – This shows my Samsung 840 Pro (This will be my OS drive) set up in a single drive RAID0 in the B140i using SSA
       
       
       
      After manually installing Windows Server 2016 easily on HPE’s ProLiant ML30 Gen9 I was anxious to see if an install of Window 10 Pro would be just as trouble free. It was!
       
      Besides having Hyper-V capabilities, Windows 10 Pro, is being looked on by many as the basis of a low cost Home Server as illustrated in “Building a Windows 10 Home Server – Anniversary Update Edition”. Check out HPE’s Operating System Support Matrices for insights on the many OS’s that the ML30 Gen9 supports. But, what will work goes beyond what’s officially supported by HPE in the “Matrices”. Windows 10 Pro is not listed in the Matrices but Windows Server 2016 is and Server 2016 shares much of the code with Windows 10 Pro as does Server 2012R2 shares with Windows 8.1 pro and Server 2012 shares with Windows 8. In order to manually load Windows 10 Pro I downloaded drivers for Server 2016. The simplest procedure, for me, is to use SPP to update all the ML30 Gen9 firmware first, then use the drivers for the B140i to load Windows 10 Pro, then after Windows 10 Pro is loaded and updated use HPSUM to load all the relevant drivers and software into Windows 10 Pro.
       
      Like Server 2016, Windows 10 Pro has its own generic drivers that will work with the ML30 Gen9’s NIC and Video so the B140i drivers is all that’s needed to get Windows 10 Pro onto the ML30 Gen9! HPSUM run (with Administrator Privileges) will load all of the missing HPE drivers I need in one step – including the NIC’s, Video, and SSA – just to name a few.
       
       
       
      Step-By-Step: Windows 10 Pro on HPE ProLiant ML30 Gen9
       
      I used iLO4 to remote into the ML30 Gen9 and began to install Windows 10 Pro x64 manually (i.e. without using IP) in the following general steps:
       
      Since I had just recently done steps 1-7 not long ago I skipped to 5 then did 7 through 16 below.
      Download Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) from Hewlett Packard Enterprise Support Center – Drivers & Software – the current version is 2016.10.0 (24 Oct 2016) – check also threads about SPP at HSS Forum MS Gen8 Load the SPP ISO in “virtual drives” in remote desktop of iLO4 Boot the ML30 Gen9 – with no drives in the ML30 Gen9 in my case – and let SPP run automatically and update all firmware – See Figure 3 below. Shut down the ML30 Gen9 Next: I removed the Samsung 840 Pro 256GB that I had loaded Server 2016 on (giving me the flexibility to switch OS’s by switching SSD’s in the ML30 Gen9) and loaded another Samsung 840 Pro 256GB into drive 1 of the Icy Dock ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1 Go to the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Support Center – Drivers & Software – and download the file cp028631.exe that is the Dynamic Smart Array B140i Controller Driver for 64-bit Microsoft Windows Server 2012/2016 Editions (Since Windows 10 has the same core as Server 2016 I plan to use it for manual installation of Windows 10 64-bit Pro in the ML30 Gen9 – the HPE Drivers & Software site does not have Drivers & Software for non-server OS’s) – the current version is 62.12.0.64 (24 Oct 2016) Extract the files in cp028631.exe and load those into a file folder that I then attach/load in “virtual drives” of remote desktop of iLO4 (during Windows install this will be the folder I browse to so that Windows 10 can pull in the driver and see the Samsung 840 Pro ) Load the Windows 10 Pro x64 ISO in “virtual drives” of remote desktop of iLO4 Boot the ML30 Gen9 During boot go into IP (press F10) and select SSA (Smart Storage Administrator) In SSA I set up the Samsung 840 Pro as a single drive RAID0 to be used as my OS drive – See Figure 2 earlier. Exit SSA & IP and Restart the ML30 Gen9 Proceed with the normal Windows 10 Pro x64 install – During install Windows 10 will ask for location of drivers so it can see the drive(s) – in browse lead it to the location to the file folder of B140i driver(s) in the “virtual drives” C: -- if your OS drive had been previously formatted as MBR you will have to delete that so it can be formatted as GPT. See Video 1 below. After Windows 10 is installed and updated – reattach SPP ISO in remote desktop of iLO4 In the Windows desktop go to the SPP ISO in File Explorer and Execute the Batch file for HPSUM (i.e. execute: launch_hpsum.bat as Administrator) – I chose “Localhost Guided Update” – Automatic Mode After running HPSUM (and rebooting) the HPE software shown in Figure 4 below was installed. Enjoy!  
       

       
      Figure 3 – After running SPP’s ISO the firmware of the ML30 Gen9 is up to date.

      Figure 7 – Basic information showing Windows Server loaded onto my HPE ProLiant ML30 Gen9 running from a single SSD RAID0 in bay 1 of the Icy Dock ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1
       
       
       
      All in all Windows 10 Pro was easy to load onto the HPE ProLiant ML30 Gen9 providing a relatively cheaper platform (compared to Windows Server 2016) for a home lab for setting up and testing applications in Hyper-V for instance.

      Hello!
       
      I have a Surface RT (32 GB) and it only has 1.69 GB of space left on the HD. The thing is that I have almost nothing on it (just a few apps that I check and do NOT take a lot of space, and small files), so I don't know what is taking so much space. Does anyone knows where is all that memory going? I have not being able to find it (I have checked the size of the apps, delete the trash can, delete the internet history/cookies)...
       
      Also, I want to upgrade to Windows 8.1. These are the two ways that I have think of doing it, but I will like your opinion on which option is better (or if there is a better way):
       
      Plan 1: take the tablet to its original status (in PC settings > General > Remove everything and reinstall Windows), move the recovery files to a thumb drive (http://www.surfacegeeks.net/forums/index.php?/topic/192-surface-rt-how-to-free-up-4-gigabytes-of-storage-space-on-your-rt/), and do all updates to take it to Windows 8.1
       
      Plan 2: free some space by moving the recovery files to a thumb drive, make the upgrade to Windows 8.1, run a cleanup disk and defragment the drive
       
      Making a backup of the files in the tablet is easy b/c there is not much in it, but my main concerns for the process are: I am going to loose microsoft office? is it going to ask me for any key/license number (if I ever had one, I don't know where it is)? anything else that I am missing?
       
      Thanks!

      Good day all,
      I have a general question about the Surface Windows RT.
      I have heard that it comes with MS Office installed on it. I also heard on a Windows Weekly podcast recently that they thought that it didn't include Outlook.
       
      Has anyone heard information about Office on the Surface Windows RT?
       
      Here is a specification sheet from the Microsoft web site.
