Press Release Body: Get Notified About Changes In Public Folders From Tray

Have you ever missed an important post or a message? Do always want to be in the
know what\'s going on in Exchange public folders, as well as your own personal mail
folders? An add-on called Public Folder Watcher will help do all above mentioned.

LVOV, Ukraine - Dec. 28, 2007 - ArtfulBits Inc. today announces the immediate
availability of Public Folder Watcher 1.52.0, a major new release of the add-on for
Microsoft Outlook that enables its users - managers, analysts, tech support
specialists - to get notified about changes in Exchange public folders and get a
status of unread email messages right from the system tray. Additionally, the add-on
will track other email folders and do it more conveniently than the native Outlook
feature, especially when there are many folders and rules used.

Once Public Folder Watcher is installed, it adds a small notification window next to
the system tray and every 20 minutes (or some other custom interval) it\'ll pop up
automatically to show a list of all folders containing unread mail in Inbox and
Public folders. A click on the folder item you are interested in will open up an
Outlook window. The add-on integrates into Microsoft Outlook seamlessly and doesn\'t
slow down its performance thanks to its multi-threaded technology. You can easily
set things up to your own preferences through the menu in Outlook. For example, you
can configure the checking intervals for folders.

What\'s new in Public Folder Watcher 1.52.0?

- New Public Folder Watcher includes a wealth of functionality, including a
multilingual support for English and Russian users with other localizations coming
up soon.
- In 1.52.0 the process of scanning folders at the first launch can be hidden. Or,
you can put it off - in this case the re-scan of folders will be delayed until the
next launch and there will be an opportunity to disable some unnecessary folders.
- When the terminal is used, you can disable notifications.
- New Public Folder Watcher will automatically stop monitoring the folders with slow
access when the connection is slow or when working in VPN.
- New to 1.52.0 is support for group policies. Customers can get more information
about it when they buy a corporate license.
- During the first three minutes after the launch of Microsoft Outlook, Public
Folder Watcher will not monitor the availability of new messages, so you can get all
mail in the morning and read all messages at once without any notifications about
