    Thanks.

    Hi

    Great Work. Here are some of the other interesting web parts and solutions accelerators with free trial versions.

    Form Auto Save Web Part

    Automatically save form data so work is not lost due to session timeouts.



    SQL View Web Part

    Quickly generate a SQL statement or database view for SharePoint® list data to use with popular reporting applications, such as Microsoft® Access or Crystal® Reports.



    Link Integrity Web Part (Available January '06)

    When Sharepoint's "lookup" fields are not enough, establish a relationship between two SharePoint lists using the Link Integrity Web Part.



    Thanks

    Hi, We at Opportunity Solutions have developed a utility that allows you to integrate Exchange emails in Sharepoint. Meaning you can within sharepoint get a view of all relevant emails depending on context or where you are in the workflow. The product is called Email-Manager and we capture emails automatically from the exchange server and publish them automatically and directly into sharepoint. Check it out here: www.oppsol.com or a recorded demo here: http://www.oppsol.com/emmspsdemo/emm-sps2007-1024/

    Kind regards
