Not every company offers OWA for users. Also, I can't remember the exact
details, but I do remember some features not being fully supported with the
web client. Don't quote me on that, but the idea is in the back of my head.
Plus, between you, me, and everyone on this list, I'm not a big fan of web
interfaces. They just tend to be clunky, and you can't really integrate
local applications with web interfaces very well, if at all. Just my
opinion of course.
