A messaging and collaboration system provides more than just an e-mail program; it is a core part of any businessâ?? communications infrastructure and a central link to the Internet. As the premier messaging and collaboration client for Macintosh computers accessing Microsoft Exchange Server-based e-mail services, Outlook 2001 helps organizations be more productive. Outlook 2001 uses the same data formats as Outlook 2000 for Windows. This enables users of the Microsoft Outlook messaging and collaboration client to communicate easily and share information across the Macintosh and Microsoft WindowsÂ® operating systems. Macintosh users can send and receive e-mail, schedule meetings, manage contacts and share folders with the same capability as users of Outlook for Windows.
In addition, Outlook 2001 has been built from the ground up as a world-class application for the Macintosh, taking advantage of key Apple technologies and the unique capabilities of the Macintosh operating system. Outlook 2001 works with all versions of Microsoft Exchange Server to ensure that organizations deploying Exchange have immediate access to a comprehensive e-mail client for their Macintosh computers.
