Microsoft launched an updated version of Outlook Mobile for Windows Mobile 6.1 phones last week. Outlook 1.0 for Windows Mobile 6.1 provides some features that were previously only available on Windows Mobile 6.5 phones, including support for Microsoft Exchange Server 200. Some of the new features include:

  • Over-the-air updates
  • Sync SMS messages to Exchange
  • Group messages by conversation
  • Free/busy calendar lookup
  • Text transcriptions of your voicemail messages

You can download the update by connecting your Windows Mobile 6.1 phone to an Exchange Server 2010. You should get a notice that there’s an update available. There’s no standalone download, and you won’t get all of the nifty new features if you’re not using your phone to connect to an Exchange server.
