OUTLOOK 2003, OUTLOOK 2007 and Outlook Web Access 2007 feature comparison…


Exchange 2007 provides mobile email support for more than just mobile devices… people often overlook the fact that you can use Outlook Web Access from a laptop or infact any web based PC anywhere!

Outlook Web Access (OWA) 2007 has been massively enhanced and is now very close to Outlook client in capabilities…

Prior to Exchange 2007 I’d use OWA only in emergencies… with OWA 2007 I actually used it for 2 weeks whilst my PC was in for repair with a broken hard drive!! 

The document listed here outlines the capabilities in OWA 2007 compared to the Outlook 2007 client and Outlook 2003

    It would be nice to see Exchange ActiveSync also appearing in this list…

    Windows Mobile 5 MSFP along with any future versions of Windows Mobile?

    Not forgetting a column detailing the elements which have been licenced for other companys to use in their clients (Symbian, DataViz, Nokia & Sony Ericsson)

    Afterall a mobile device is now an Exchage client…

    m@ makes a good point.

    Actually, several columns would be required for WM — SmartPhone vs Pocket PC, but then also the different AKU’s…

    Also, a whole bunch of new rows would be interesting when it comes to WM as an Exchange client, such as:

    – ability to open and view another user’s folder (e.g. Calendar)

    – ability to organise a meeting in Calendar & invite attendees

    – ability to tentatively accept a meeting

    – etc.

    I have been scouring the web for this information and not found it anywhere, strangely enough. I mean, don’t people use their WM devices for work? And doesn’t work involve a lot of calendaring? Surely I’m not the only one who uses Outlook Calendar to manage my time, meetings, etc… For me, my WM device is as much about Calendar as it is about e-mail. Meeing management is important! How come no one else is talking about these things? Jason, any ideas?

    M@, Paul – both great comments.  I was actually planning to produce something which showed the features that WM had vs Activesync Licensees so you’ve just given me new focus 🙂
