Outlook Connector for MSN Set for Beta
After demonstrating a prototype in July called Outlook Connector for MSN, Microsoft is finally ready to invite customers into the beta program.
The beta is designed to seamlessly integrate Microsoft's Outlook 2003 productivity software with MSN services ranging from photo sharing and contact management to online scheduling. The test is scheduled to run throughout the month of December into January.
In a message to invited testers, Microsoft beta coordinators stressed, "Since this beta has such a short window of opportunity to submit bugs and feedback, it is very critical that we have high participation in the first 2 weeks of the beta. Please make your decision carefully."
The invite also notes that a valid credit card number is required during installation, but no charges will be made during the beta.
The guest ID "MSNOLC" is needed in order to access BetaPlace and apply to test Outlook Connector for MSN.
