Calendar

Click on the Calendar icon on your toolbar and you will be brought to the following window:

WebMail Monthly Calendar View

The calendar shows will show you events, which you will set up in the calendar section and it also shows you due dates for tasks that you set up in your Task List.

Note: If you do not set up a due date for a task, you will not see it in the calendar view.

By default, you will see the monthly calendar, but as you can see, you can change the view by the tabs at the top.

If you change to the daily view using the tab at the top, you will be taken to today's date. To go forward, click the arrow to the right of the date. To go backward, click the arrow to the left of the date. If you would like to go to a particular date, you can click on that date in the monthly view.
