We are really excited about the new features of Outlook 2007
New York (PRWEB) January 8, 2007
Intermedia.NET, the global leader in Microsoft Exchange hosting, is the first host to provide customers with a free download of Microsoft's new Outlook 2007 software combined with hosted Exchange 2007. The first and currently the only host offering hosted Exchange 2007, Intermedia.NET provides customers with a free copy of Outlook 2007 for every user of the service.
The free Outlook 2007 download is available to all current and new customers, whether they are using Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2007. All users of Intermedia.NET's Small Business and Enterprise Exchange 2003 hosting service will be upgraded to Exchange 2007 for free during the course of this year.
"Having launched the world's first hosted Exchange 2007 service, we are now the first to give users the power of Outlook 2007 combined with Exchange 2007. All of our customers can now provide their employees with the most up-to-date, cutting-edge technology Microsoft has to offer," said Intermedia.NET CEO Serguei Sofinski.
The release of Outlook 2007 brings many improvements in the user experience, both in functionality and aesthetic terms. One of the most notable upgrades to Outlook 2007 is the Instant Search feature. Outlook 2007 Instant Search is far faster and more flexible than previous Outlook search tools.
Using the same technology as Windows Desktop Search and Windows Vista, Instant Search keeps an always up-to-date index of all of the information stored in Outlook. This means that the results list will often appear in less than one second, as compared to the minimum of 30 seconds past versions of Outlook could take.
"We are really excited about the new features of Outlook 2007," said Sofinski. "The upgrades that Microsoft made to Outlook are sure to increase productivity for our customers by better managing their time and information."
Other exciting changes and improvements made to the new version of Outlook include:
- Greater integration with mobile devices through the new 'Outlook Mobile Service' feature which lets users send and receive text and picture messages between Outlook 2007 and any mobile phone.
- Improved anti-phishing and junk email technologies that help prevent both junk and malicious email, along with new 'Outlook Email Postmark,' which helps to ensure that email is legitimate and that mail sent by Outlook 2007 will be trusted by the recipient's computer.
- Improved scheduling capabilities that make scheduling easier by suggesting ideal meeting times and locations and a new 'Calendar Overlay mode' that allows users to view and navigate multiple calendars at once.
- A new results-oriented user interface that makes composing, formatting, and acting on email easier and more intuitive.
All of Intermedia.NET's hosted Exchange server customers will be able to download Outlook 2007 free of charge directly from the online HostPilot Exchange control panel. Current SAN-based Small Business and Enterprise plan customers will be upgraded for free during the course of 2007, and all customers signing up now for Exchange 2007 hosting can start benefiting from its new features immediately.
