“Loving Outlook Connector”

with 5 comments

Those aren’t my words, they’re the words of my fiancee Helen who yesterday installed the Outlook Connector that can:

  • Read and send your Office Live Mail/Windows Live Hotmail e-mail messages.
  • Manage your Live Mail Contacts.
  • Use advanced options for blocking junk e-mail messages.
  • Manage multiple e-mail accounts in one place.
  • Manage, share, and synchronize your calendar in Hotmail from Outlook.
  • Access your Tasks and Notes.

I’m often sending things Helen’s way to get her to try them and usually she drops them either through exasperation or boredom. With Outlook Connector though its different, she actually likes this one. I asked her for a soundbite and she came back with "a neat and easy way to share and manage my personal email with the same effectiveness as I manage my professional email using Outlook functionality, superb!"

Yep, she definitely likes this one 🙂

One minor downside was that she has Outlook 2003 which only allows you to view view multiple calendars side-by-side. Outlook 2007 allows you to overlay them which is a much better experience.

  1. Beat me to the punch here.  Great post on what is looking like a great feature of both Microsoft Office as well as Windows Live Mail.

  3. And then when they add calendar to the Windows Live Mail client, accessing, organizing and communicating from any machine connected to the internet will be available in every conceivable form.

  4. Not quite John. They need to add calendar sync to Windows Live 4 Windows Mobile yet.

  5. I am both a Windows and a OS X user and a Entourage connector would be great too! I wonder if the Microsoft Office for Mac Team have any future plans
