Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of the MSN Information Services & Merchant Platform division at Microsoft Corp is due to make an announcement regarding a new MSN Service (Microsoft Outlook Service) tomorrow.
MOOL (Microsoft Office Outlook Live) is a replacement for the heavily criticised MSN Outlook Connector. Just like Outlook Connector the add-in aims to synchronise data between MSN Hotmail and Microsoft Outlook, but the idea is to extend the capabilities of such synchronisation. Users of MOOL should be able to sync mail/calendar entries/contacts/notes/tasks with MSN Hotmail.
Although the service is due to Beta tomorrow it’s expected the service will be widely available in the first quarter of 2005.
Along with the MOOL announcement, Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi is due to announce the availability of the MSN Toolbar Suite beta tomorrow.
