Main app here too. For how much I email, I don't need the wiz-bang features of more powerful corporate e-mailing programs.

LDAP, for when you know someone's name in your org/company, but not their e-mail address.

It has this...

Unless I'm thinking of something different, it set up automatically as soon as I joined my exchange account. I can type in a name, click "Search <organization>", and it will find all the people with that name. I didn't have to do anything special to make it work.

I haven't used it as my main email client since I went back to 7, but I ended up having to install WLMail because it couldn't handle conversations more than 4-5 replies long without freezing and crashing and needing a new conversation to be started every few replies

Once you get familiar with it, it's OK for a free app. It's actually quite nice on the Surface. If you can, I haven't figured out how to flat emails, that sucks.

It is limited, but useless, far from it. Not nearly as nice as the web based Outlook.com but it'll do. On the Surface it's good. On the desktop, I'd use outlook.com.

No exchange account.

Like being able to empty your Deleted Items? :laugh:

I'll be much less frustrated when it catches up with the consumer feature set of Live Mail, the website, or even some of the doodads from WP7.

Maybe when it reaches feature-parity with Outlook Express... :rolleyes:
