Time Warner Employees Upset At Having To Use AOL Email

from the eat-the-dog-food dept

Apparently, Time Warner employees are upset that they’re being asked to use AOL’s email system as their corporate email client. While it is designed to be easy to use for home users, it’s lacking many of the important features that most corporate email systems have. Of course, the folks at Time Warner do admit that they transferring from another terrible email system (they don’t say which, but it sounds like cc:mail or something equally as bad). I understand companies who want their employees to use their own products – but AOL isn’t really designed for corporate use, and thus, I think they’re doing their employees a disservice in forcing them to use it. Update: For those of you who have philosophical differences with the NY Times (as per some recent discussions here) it appears that CNET is also carrying the story.
