About inbox rules:

They should never ever switch order. If you can reproduce this reliably, let me know and I'll file a bug. However, by default, inbox rules are created with an additional predicate of "stop processing more rules." This keeps more than one rule from processing any single message (*normally* this is a good thing).

If you want multiple rules to process in order, then make sure "stop processing more rules" is not checked on those rules.

Also, I just tested this running Firefox only on my test account. We're committed to supporting a wide range of common browsers across platforms--not just IE/Windows.

- Firefox 3+
- Safari 3.1+
- Chrome 3+

This is the version of OWA included in Office 365.

Ah, but it is a patent thing, because the guy who invented the saw is a former patent lawyer.

Stephen Gass, an Oregon native, invented the SawStop's flesh-detecting saw brake in his barn. Gass left his career as a patent lawyer to try to license the device to tool manufacturers, who turned him away. Gass went into business, designing and selling his own saws, which have set a new standard for safety in the industry.

It doesn't use WebDAV, it uses Exchange Web Services, which is a standard API for developers to build their own Exchange clients.

I know this because it works with the Exchange 2010 RC, and Exchange 2010 no longer includes WebDAV.

In fact, the Apple web site states (correctly) that it requires Exchange 2007, because Exchange 2003 didn't have EWS.

There is no single "Exchange Protocol." What you might be talking about is MAPI, the protocol Outlook uses to talk to Exchange (and the oldest protocol Exchange supports, I believe). MAPI is full documented on MSDN, and there are a number of open source implementations of MAPI (see

However, the Exchange support in Snow Leopard doesn't use MAPI, it uses Exchange Web Services, which is also open and documented on MSDN.
