  1. guys — really? Outlook is the mail platform for enterprise mail and you create a surface that doesn’t use it… who was out to lunch when that vote was taken?

  2. The email app on the Srface supports Exchange servers and is similar to the in functionality. I have the surface actively synched through a vpn to our exchange server. The main issue was sorting out the certificate problem which is now well documented.

  3. Big Problem for me I use outlook for all my business pop and exchange serveur

  4. Seems to me that the Surface RT was a rush job by Microsoft just to grab consumers money before Christmas. I waited for the Surface RT to be available rather than buy the iPad. Now wish I bought the iPad, at least Apple give people what they want, unlike Microsoft.

    Why did they not bring the RT & PRO out at the same time and why is the PRO so expensive? Because some mug will buy it.
