Do NOT be fooled by imitators that say they offer Exchange functionality but require Outlook plug-ins or additional software. 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!
SmarterMail and Exchange are the only two email servers on the market that offer native MAPI support. While other mail servers claim to have Exchange functionality, they rely on third-party plug-ins or other additional software that mimics some, but not all, features of Exchange. Plug-ins can be buggy and unstable, they don't offer complete Outlook integration and functionality, and they require additional management and administration. Native support for the protocols that make Exchange "Exchange" is the only way to go.
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.
With SmarterMail, you can do what you want within Microsoft Outlook, just as if you were using Exchange or Office 365. This includes:
SmarterMail is compatible with all current versions of Microsoft Outlook for Windows. Older versions of Outlook, unfortunately, offer very limited Exchange functionality for Outlook. Supported versions include:
