    For Outlook 2007, Microsoft switched to the Word rendering engine for Outlook e-mails. Anyone who has ever tried to open a html document in Word will know just how bad an idea this was.

    It's still the same in Outlook 2010, but there's a campaign to get Microsoft to sort it out.

    I must admit outlook is the one ms product I'm glad I don't have to support anymore, its absolute rubbish. It has this problem as you say and the PST thing used to drive me nuts (so so flakey). why on earth did they think it was a good idea to use word as the default html viewer, madness.... (walks off to lovingly stroke his groupwise installation disks).

    We do, still very much a novell shop, granted edir and netware are looking rather long in the tooth these days the basic premise of which pre-dates AD.But groupwise as an email client is amazing (and secure).:biggrin

    I've always found the integration with third party applications into Novell\Groupwise to be a pain in the neck. LDAP isnt as easy as just selecting 'Active Directory' and other applications that need email integration just dont work unless I set up a basic POP3 config onto the Groupwise server.

    Each to their own, I only support a handful of Novell networks in comparison to MS. 8)

    Hmm thats true, but we see that as an added bonus dont want any old application hooking itself into your email client merrily banging out emails until someone pulls the plug.

    I suppose most 3rd party apps are set up for AD and exchange just because its what most people use, doesnt mean that its a "standard" just because software writers create apps tailored to AD.

    Not wanting to get into an argument or anything cause we are talking about email clients and I actually prefer AD as a management structure, so if I could work somewhere that had AD and groupwise as the client I would be a happy and stress free man.

    I have no particular love for Outlook, but in an all MS environment linking into Exchange, it's sooo easy to support and just works really well.

    I wouldn't want to support it in an non exchange setup though. *shudders*

    Groupwise is similarly simple, you just point the app at the ip addy for the PO (when its installed)and the user taps in their username and password(could be the same as their login details but we enforce different ones), bam email-a-riffic.
