The plugin works on PC-based computers and with versions of Outlook 2007 onward. It can be used by law firms using Exchange Server.

The announcement said that email integration in the first step in a planned comprehensive Outlook package that will allow users to work seamlessly between Outlook and Rocket Matter.
