    Microsoft users get ability to ship via FedEx from inside Outlook - Computer World

    FedEx Corp. has created a free add-in for Microsoft Corp.'s Outlook e-mail and collaboration software that lets users check delivery rates, schedule pickups and track packages.

    Called FedEx QuickShip, the new tool lets users of Outlook 2003 or Outlook 2007 send packages to contacts in their address books via FedEx with a single mouse click, according to Chris Bryant, senior product manager at Microsoft's Office platform strategy team. That capability saves FedEx customers from having to upload or retype the address and contact information of recipients, he added.
