We’ve already talked about some cool features in the new Dynamics GP release – Dynamics GP 2013 R2, officially – but it’s finally here. It includes a lot of new features; some add functionality, some streamline your business processes and some give us a sneak peek of what Microsoft has in store.
You probably don’t spend much time thinking about email. Oh, you spend plenty of time reading it and de-cluttering your inbox, but you may not even realize that you’ve got several different options for actually sending, receiving and syncing email.
