Answers to Webinar Questions about Colligo Products

Well, our recent webinar, "<a href="/resources/webinars/">The Myths &amp; Truths of Email Management with SharePoint</a>.", with Joel Oleson, was a resounding success with almost 2100 registants. <a href="http://www.sharepointjoel.com/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=132">As Joel pointed out on his blog</a>, this was the "Largest Global SharePoint Webinar/Webcast Ever!".

There were so many questions from the attendees that we couldn't get them answered during the allotted time. Joel was kind enough to <a href="http://www.sharepointjoel.com/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=135">post the answers on his blog to the questions directed to him</a>. He also <a href="http://www.sharepointjoel.com/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=137">posted a series of podcasts</a> on the material he presented during the webinar.

I pulled out the Colligo questions and I'm going to answer them here. Please let me know what you thought of the webinar. If you are interested in hearing a replay, you can get it <a href="/resources/webinars/" target="_blank">here</a>.

So let’s get started.

I’m sure we would all agree that emails and attachments form a large part of those assets. Today, users must sort through thousands of emails to find the critical ones while being pressed to make decisions immediately. It’s difficult to find, categorize, and sort content to stay efficient, so data gets lost, and more and more time is spent searching for information.
