  • Elimination of PST files; mail folders available from any device anywhere
  • Better support of mobile devices for e-mail, contacts and calendars
  • 25 GB U: drive for every user
  • Many new features/functions, including:
  • Individually controlled internal and external out-of-office message
  • “Working Elsewhere” calendar label
  • Capabilities that will be implemented in later phases of the project:
  • IM, MOSS (SharePoint)
  • Browser versions of MS-Word, MS-Excel, MS-PowerPoint and MS-Outlook

The initial activities in this migration are focused on addressing moving the email functionality. Other capabilities, although available, will not be supported until they are formally implemented.
