Attensa RSS Reader for Microsoft Outlook 2007 enters open public beta
Posted on 7-Mar-2007 12:14. | Tags Filed under: News.

Attensa, Inc. has announced a free public beta for Attensa for Outlook 2007, building on the integrated RSS capabilities in the new version of Microsoft Outlook 2007 by optimising Outlook performance and adding a complete set of tools for receiving and managing information.

A feature called Attensa AttentionStream continuously analyzes behaviors as RSS subscriptions are scanned and articles are read. It automatically pulls the articles and feeds the reader finds to be most important to the top.

Attensa for Outlook is a RSS reader designed specifically for enterprise use. The Attensa for Outlook 2007 feature set and functionality were developed using feedback from IT professionals and corporate information workers in organizations where tens of thousands of desktops are using Attensa for Outlook.

One the new features is an optimised Outlook performance, provided by using separate PST files for RSS feeds. By default Outlook 2007 stores RSS subscriptions in the users Exchange mailbox. In enterprise environments with limits on mailbox size, these files can fill up fast. In addition to cuting storage requirements on the server, this separation makes feeds and articles available for offline reading.

Attensa for Outlook 2007 also provides custom scheduling for updating RSS feeds allowing users to set up schedules for specific feeds, and updating feeds independently from email.

The software synchronises the RSS information with the new Microsoft RSS Platform. By leveraging the Microsoft Common Feed Store, RSS feeds added using Attensa for Outlook, Internet Explorer 7 or Windows Vista, will automatically be synchronised for a seamless user experience.
