Default language on Exchange clients

Share this:


I’ve seen some questions about the folder names on Outlook/OWA in MS Forums. I’m going to explain two possible ways to change this behavior:

When a mailbox is accessed by first time it receives default language from client and the default folder names had language (Inbox, Sent Items, Outbox and etc..)

All the best,
