These quotes are taken from an article by Michael Sampson (@collabguy) talking about Outlook, SharePoint, and OnePlaceMail. It’s great to see that some of our guiding principles are shining through into the user experience.

OnePlaceMail stands against the overwhelming complexity of SharePoint, helping users adopt those features most relevant to them and their work.

    To connect to your SP2010 environment and start using OnePlaceMail check out the online Quick Start Guide
