Looking for easy ways to access your Army OWA email through a browser? This article will show you how in a few simple steps.

Although there are many email clients and ways to access Gmail, Yahoo, and AOL, there aren't many options to access Army OWA email. The main reason for this is security. Nowadays, if you are military personnel, you should consider following these steps:

  1. Make sure your CAC reader is connected to your computer.
  2. Open Chrome or Microsoft Edge on your computer.
  3. Visit this page:
  4. If it asks you for a certificate, please select the "PIV AUTH" certificate.
  5. Enter your 6-digit CAC pin number.

This article, however, will show you another way.

How to Access Your Army OWA Email on a Desktop

A great way to improve your email experience and use OWA email on your desktop is to use an email client - a computer program used to access and manage a user's email.

Although there are a few leading desktop apps to manage your email accounts in one place, Mailbird is the email client that can offer you complete security for the following reasons:

  • It doesn't store your emails.
  • You can also opt out of tracking your product usage in Mailbird's settings.

Apart from that, you can unify your inboxes, snooze emails, and track whether recipients read an email. All of that makes Mailbird a great program to access your Army OWA email on a desktop.

Adding Your OWA Email in Mailbird
