Lookout + Microsoft = More competition for GMail

As mentioned earlier here and here, while I was waiting for my GMail account, I came across Lookout, a fabulous add-in for Outlook. While I don't save quite as much time using Lookout as they suggest I might, it really does help when trying to find that e-mail that I sent to my boss half a year ago, or when attempting to locate an old spec file in a network share folder.

Now Lookout Software has been bought by Microsoft, or more specifically MSN. This may be just because someone within MS realized that this is a great tool that would be nice to add to Outlook, but I think it really is a direct response to the e-mail threat posed by GMail and Yahoo! Mail...

Lookout / Microsoft Q&A here.
