Volunteers to test NHSmail

12th December 2008

The NHSmail platform is to begin a series of "extended user acceptance testing", say NHS Connecting for Health.

Will Moss, programme head of NHSmail, said 600 volunteers would trial the new system until the beginning of January, when the first live accounts are due to be migrated. It follows the announcement last July that NHSmail would move from its Mirapoint platform to Microsoft Exchange 2007. Migration was originally due to start this autumn but has since been delayed until the New Year.

Now migrated to NHS Mail - and it is awful.

I've lost all the functionality of Outlook and all the other MS Office suite [you can't email directly from an application] no archive, no address book [other than your own 'Contacts' and other NHS Mail registered users, it takes nearly a minute to attach a file, and 15 seconds to add one address.

Really, it's quite pathetic - it's worse than those free hotmail type accounts.
