A look at new Exchange and Outlook Mobile features

We've previously discussed some of the upcoming changes Outlook Mobile may see with the launch of Microsoft Exchange 2010 (we say may because it's up to your IT department to actually implement them). A recap:

  • Threaded e-mail.
  • Voicemail transcription.
  • Sync SMS.
  • Block/quarantine phones.
  • See when messages you've replied to or forwarded.
  • See if a contact has some free time for you.

And, the really cool part: When your business (or Exchange provider, at least) upgrades to Exchange 2010, an upgraded version of Outlook Mobile can be pushed to your Windows Mobile 6.1/6.5 phone.

Now, see a few of those changes in action. Part 1 is above, and the second part of the video is after the break.

  • Looks pretty good.
  • I have the cingular 8125, it's also windows compatible, your phone should come with an installment disk which has all the necessary programs you need in order to sync your phone. outlook will be installed on your computer from that disk, and all the other necessary documents will install also. just be sure to approve it all on your computer if it prompts you!
  • How about fixing some basic things before adding fancy features .. like making notes sync over exchange? or syncing reminder dismissals?
