Outlook Express To Be Renamed To Windows Mail

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:45 am

The team of outlook express has been reassembled a year ago to enhance the email client that will ship as part of the expected operating system Windows Vista.

The old outlook express is going to be named Windows Mail. Windows Mail will feature new UI, advanced spam filter, better search capabilities with search as you type feature.

Windows Mail will use a new database to index (JET) emails, and it’ll use the standard file system to store the actual email, this way you can search and work with email messages directly from the shell, without even open the mail client.

The contacts system in Windows Vista went an overhaul and now contacts are simply XML files on the file system which are seamlessly integrated with the shell and Windows Mail.

In the newsgroups section of Windows Mail, Microsoft added a rating system which users can mark posts as questions, answers and rate posts.
