In a move that I think is overdue, Outlook 2010 will be able to send and receive SMS. Everyone but enterprises are benefiting from SMS, but since this is “the year of communications” at Microsoft—some more UC features are making it into Outlook! I’ll let some bloggers speak on my behalf today:
Send SMS Directly from Outlook 2010!
WM 6.5 Along with Exchange 2010 SMS will sync back to Exchange where they can be searched and archived.
It appears the SMS will be sent using ActiveSync and your mobile phone. (How clever!)http://chrislehr.com/2009/11/exchange-2010-outlook-mobile-61-and.htm
Outlook 2010 is shaping up to be a better and better Unified Communication client.
