Do NOT be fooled by imitators that say they offer Exchange functionality but require Outlook plug-ins or additional software that doesn't even come close! Connect Outlook to SmarterMail JUST like you connect it to Microsoft Exchange using SmarterMail's native integration of MAPI. SmarterMail gives users the features they want, and need, without any additional software, without Outlook plug-ins, and without additional per-user costs. Share your folders, contacts, calendars, tasks and notes; Categorize items; Flag messages for follow up; Create To-Do lists, and more!
Microsoft Outlook works natively with just 2 mail servers: SmarterMail and Exchange. That's it!
Other mail servers claim to have Exchange functionality, but they rely on third-party plug-ins or other additional software that mimics some, but not all, features of Exchange. This additional sofware isn't as reliable as native Outlook integration because plug-ins can be buggy and unstable, they don't offer complete Outlook integration and functionality, and they require additional management and administration from IT Departments, system administrators and users themselves. In addition, many carry per-user costs that need to be passed along.
With a native implementation of MAPI over HTTP and Exchange Web Services (EWS), SmarterMail can be used with Microsoft Outlook on both Windows computers as well as Macs, giving users on both platforms Exchange features and functionality.
