We are standardizing on Surface RT as our business tablets and have heard that Outlook RT will be coming sometime this year (2013) for Windows RT. Our primary need is to have the evault plugin available for this asap. I don't know if ya'll can get access to it as developers, but it would be a huge asset for us and I am sure many business users.

Thanks

Doug Glasgow

i work with a lot of customers and have not heard this request until now. if Outlook RT supports IMAP then you might be in luck when EV 11 comes out. you can also access the archive explorer and search pages from a web browser. there's even a mobile search page which has been around for a really long time. lastly, there might exist a 3rd party addon from a partner that support this too.

Thanks, yes, we have tried the web based access options, and while it is OK as a workaround, it is not good for day to day use. We use the Virtual Vault, and would want that functionality available in the Outlook RT client.

Currently to get around this, Surface RT users log in with VPN and RDP to a desktop computer in the data center to access full Outlook and virtual vault.

We also use the Surface Pro, which is a full x86 windows OS, so does not have the RT limitations, but the costs and battery life is a big drawback to standardizing on that.

Good idea. I mean there is no saying it won't work .. but it would be good to get clarity/confirmation from Symantec

Thanks for the suggestion. At the moment we have no plans for Outlook RT support however this will be evaluated if and when MS decide to release such a version of the product.
