Some Firefox users have reported (and ITS has confirmed) that word wrap in OWA is not working correctly when typing a message (the typed text does not wrap to a new line). Microsoft acknowledges the problem and is investigating. The workaround is to use a different Web browser, such as Chrome or Internet Explorer (Windows), or Chrome or Safari (Mac).

In the Outlook Web App (myhome.ithaca.edu), you can quickly search your calendar for events using the "search calendar" box in the top, left-hand corner of the OWA window.

Note: If you do not see the search box, you will first need to expand the navigation pane by clicking the chevrons ">>" in the top, left-hand corner of the OWA window.

Some Mac users have reported to the ITS Helpdesk that the search function in OWA is not working. Microsoft acknowledges that there is a bug in the software, but has not announced a date as to when it will be fixed. The problem only occurs while using OWA in Safari or Firefox.
