Waltham, Massachusetts (PRESS RELEASE – July 9, 2010) — 123Together.com — a mindSHIFT Technologies company and the leading provider of hosted, cloud-based email and business collaboration services — is one of the first Microsoft Exchange hosting providers to make Microsoft Outlook 2010 available to organizations free of charge.
Microsoft Outlook is the world’s premier email management software, used by more than 500 million Microsoft Office users. Outlook 2010 takes business productivity and instant communication to the next level, enabling users to stay in touch at the office, at home and on the road. Users can better manage long email conversations, share and view multiple calendars at one time, communicate with colleagues and family members live from within Microsoft Outlook and much more.
“Our goal is to help all small and mid-size companies grow their businesses with the most valuable, yet cost-effective, productivity tools,” said William Flynn, 123Together.com general manager. “We are proud to be able to provide these organizations with immediate access to the world’s leading email software at no cost to them.”
Key features of Microsoft Outlook 2010 include:
Quickly And Easily Manage Email: Outlook 2010’s Conversation View condenses long email chains, eliminating the need to search for all associated responses. Emails can also be automatically deleted if the user deems the discussion to be unimportant.
Quickly Scan Multiple Calendars At Once: Schedule View combines personal, calendars, business calendars, and resource calendars, letting users conveniently and efficiently manage all aspects of their day. Frequently used calendars can also be grouped and redisplayed together when needed.
Stay Connected With Co-Workers And Friends: Outlook 2010’s Social Connector is a central source of information on co-workers and friends, pulling data from LinkedIn and other social networks into the Outlook mailbox. Users can now communicate with others live from within Outlook.
Make Emails Stand Out: New SmartArt pictures, themes, and styles can be easily incorporated into any email with built-in graphics editing tools so the senders’ emails will be more impactful and stand out in a sea of other email messages.
