I had assumed that my people would be so overwhelmed by the feature set of OWA that they’d drop Thunderbird like a steaming hot rotisserie chicken and move to the native client. Especially those who are heavy calendar users.
Which brings up a question: since it appears that Microsoft is putting the most innovative features into their browser based client, do we know what the future of the Outlook application is?
When is it appropriate to use Outlook versus OWA? The only instance I could think of would be if one wanted to do merge to email within Microsoft Office.
