It’s official, Release 6.2 of OnePlaceMail has been launched and is available now for download.
It’s been a busy few months here at Scinaptic getting this release ready, and we are excited to see how the new features are received. The new features in this release are primarily focused on making content stored in SharePoint much more accessible to the user from the desktop.
Here’s a short list of some of the goodies we’ve packed into this release:
- Quickly and easily Insert content from SharePoint into things you are working on (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
- Quickly open files and items from SharePoint directly from Office applications (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
- Default content type when saving email messages (overrides the SharePoint library default content type)
- Universal use of Document Ids in URLs generated by OnePlaceMail
What I’m most proud of is not that we’ve just checked a box to say “Yes, OnePlaceMail has that feature”. With each feature I feel we have delivered an awesome UI that users are going to love. I’ve been using the 6.2 release quite a bit over the last few weeks getting this release out the door (yes we use SharePoint and OnePlaceMail heavily ourselves!) and I’ve had a few moments were I’ve used one of the new features and thought – wow – that is so much easier. I’m finding less excuses to NOT store things in SharePoint.
As with previous releases, 6.2 is available in both the free Express Edition and the Enterprise Edition.

I hope to post some articles in the coming weeks taking a more in-depth look at the new features. Colin Wood has already posted some information related to the new features in his article Insert attachments and links from SharePoint lightning quick in Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010
