Important Note: Newer versions of Outlook have since removed access to web folders!

For convenience reasons and to preserve the familiar Outlook experience, MailArchiva’s search capabilities can be made accessible from within Outlook. MailArchiva’s search interface has an inbuilt Outlook theme that is automatically activated when the console is accessed from within Outlook.
