Mimecast have now released version 5.0 of their Outlook Client.
This version of the MSO client now supports the following:
- Large File Sent
- Large File Receive
- Microsoft Outlook 2013
- Other Microsoft Office 2013 Products (like Project and Visio 2013 no long conflict with it)
- Windows 8.1/8/7
There seems to be a slight redesign of the Mimecast tab but nothing too substantial and as always, some of the new features will only be available to you if you have them as part of your subscription package with Mimecast.
The single most frustrating thing with the new release though is that you have to uninstall version 4 before you can install version 5. Well if you have 5000+ installations like some of our customers, that is an almost impossible job – especially more so that you have to have Outlook closed to do this entire process.
We are currently working on a way of doing this full uninstall of MSO 4 and then install of MSO 5 using Configuration Manager – when we come up with a solution we will share this process with you.
