Nov. 25, 2013 – Toronto, Canada – Messageware, a world leader in Microsoft Exchange security and Outlook Web App enhancements, announced today that the Windows 8.1 Platform Ready certification has been completed for Messageware ActiveSend and that all Messageware products are currently supported on the newest Microsoft Windows operating system.

With Microsoft announcing that Windows XP will no longer be supported as of April 8, 2014, many companies will be migrating to the newer Windows platforms. And they would be wise to do so, as the latest operating system from Microsoft helps IT professionals address some of the rising security concerns that they are faced with today. With features such as support for fingerprint-based logon, Secure Boot, Windows Defender, and SmartScreen all built-in, Windows 8.1 offers better security and protection for corporate data and systems alike.

Messageware ActiveSend has been certified by Microsoft to meet all of the technical requirements to be Windows 8.1 Compatible, adding to the list of Microsoft operating systems supported by Messageware. ActiveSend is part of Messageware’s OWA Client Suite – a bundled solution of user enhancement products for Microsoft Outlook Web App and Office 365 that delivers a desktop Outlook-like webmail experience for enterprises of all sizes.

With ActiveSend and the OWA Client Suite, the user’s email experience is improved by allowing OWA to be set as the default mail client, which means that emails and documents can be composed and sent quickly and easily. In addition, users will receive new mail notifications and calendar reminders without the need to be continually logging in to their webmail accounts. This is especially beneficial for enterprises that have migrated to the cloud, but who would still like to provide their users with a desktop experience and enhanced functionality. If a company upgrades to Windows 8.1, whether their users are accessing OWA from desktop PCs or company-issued Windows 8 tablets, they can be confident that the OWA Client Suite from Messageware will be compatible.

ActiveSend and the Messageware OWA Client Suite are available for all versions of Microsoft Exchange, and companies can request the free, fully-functional evaluation software at
