Ok, I’m about to give some (minor) praise to Microsoft (someone alert Scoble!)

I’m sure some of you are forced to use something called “Outlook Web Access” which is a webmail implementation by Microsoft that connects to their Exchange Server product. Well, on the list of Supported Clients I think they could add Lynx!

I mean, I’m sure you don’t get all the nice stuff you get when using Firefox, and I’m sure when you use Firefox you don’t get all the nice stuff you get when using IE, but I was actually able to read mail.

Well, ok, I was able to read mail, but that was it. I could not send mail, or reply to mail, or anything else besides just read mail. They had to put in all sorts of funky Javascript controls to do fancy stuff like send and reply to mail…

But still, the mere fact that I could actually read mail using Outlook Web Access and Lynx is somewhat amazing…

(Oh, I take back the part about praise for Microsoft…)
