Connections with your Microsoft

- Show the business card for Connections people that send you email.
- Add an email message to an activity as an entry or as a to do.
- Create an email and search Connections Profiles for contact data you can insert in the TO, CC or BCC field.
Additionally, if you are using the Microsoft
