Outlook CompatibilityOutlook 2003, Outlook 2002, and Outlook 2000 can connect to Exchange Server 20031. Outlook 2003 and Exchange Server 2003 are designed to perform over slow, latent, or poor network connections. Examples are dial-up lines and wireless data links such as 1xRTT and General Packet Radio Service (GPRS). New Outlook 2003 features include:
- Exchange Server Cached Mode.
- VPN-less connections that use the new RPC over HTTPS capability in Outlook 2003.
Remote AccessOutlook Web Access in Exchange Server 2003 has been improved for easier use, speed, and greater security. The popularity of Outlook Web Access is in part because the product is easy to support and use and no installation is necessary. Any browser-based computer can access Exchange Server with greater security, and, with the new UI, most users have to look twice to see if they are using Outlook 2003 or Outlook Web Access. The features include:
- Spelling checker
- Task list support
- HTML and attachment blocking (prevents spam and potential beacon-finding code)
- Automatic logoff (Forgot to logoff? Don't worrythe inactivity time-out automatically logs off and closes out your session.)
Exchange Server ActiveSyncMicrosoft Windows Mobilebased devices, such as the Pocket PC, come with the Microsoft ActiveSync client and Pocket Outlook built in, which enables you to sync your e-mail messages, calendar, and contacts lists directly with Exchange Server 2003. Exchange Server administrators can enable this from the same screen used to manage Exchange Server e-mail accounts.
Outlook Mobile AccessSimilar to Outlook Web Access for desktop browsers, Outlook Mobile Access is designed for security-enhanced access from mobile device browsers. With Exchange Server 2003, users can gain access to their mailboxes from mobile devices with HTML, XHTML (WAP 2.x), and CHTML-based microbrowsers.
Administrative ProductivityExchange Server 2003 is designed to help your messaging IT staff to be more productive. Ongoing administration of an Exchange Server environment represents about 20-25 percent of TCO for Exchange Server. The new and enhanced tools help your IT staff to do their job more efficiently. For example, an executive might need to recover an old, but very important, e-mail message that was deleted a few months ago. By using the new Recovery Storage Group, an administrator can recover an individual user's mailbox to find the important e-mail message that was previously deleted. Other new administrative features include:
- Move multiple mailboxes in parallel.
- Improved message tracking and Outlook client performance logging.
- Enhanced queue viewer that enables both SMTP and X.400 queues to be seen from the same console.
- New query-based distribution lists that now support dynamic, real-time lookups for members.
