If you operate a small business and need some help you might want to look into the upgrades that TELUS recently released. You can now access and manage your TELUS hosted e-mail, contacts and calendars by using Microsoft Outlook Voice Access. (Doesn’t a BlackBerry, or any Windows Mobile smartphone already do this?)
Anyway – what this means is that you can use any phone line and a toll-free number to access your mailbox to:
– dictate, hear and forward emails
-manage calendar and contact entries
– access documents from any computer or over the Internet by accessing Outlook Web Access on a Windows Mobile-based or BlackBerry handheld.
