Microsoft kills off Outlook Express: This was probably inevitable, but it makes you wonder what Microsoft’s entry-level, bundled email program is going to be. Are they going to push MSN as the email program for new machines?
”’[Outlook Express] just sits where it is,’ said Dan Leach, lead product manager for Microsoft’s information worker product management group. ‘The technology doesn’t go away, but no new work is being done. It is consumer e-mail in an early iteration, and our investment in the consumer space is now focused around Hotmail and MSN. That’s where we’re putting the emphasis in terms of new investment and new development work.’”
