Microsoft's leading e-mail client, Outlook, is in the first phase of a social networking overhaul, as it today launched a beta version of the Outlook Social Connector. The e-mail add-on is a new pane on the Outlook screen that is connected to various social network outlets.

So if my boss, Luigi Lugmayr, were to send me an e-mail, when I opened it I could immediately see his latest Facebook status, LinkedIn activity, or MySpace posts. It is a completely reactionary service at this point, meaning users cannot adjust their social network statuses from Outlook; they can only pull info from the online outlets.

The Outlook Social Connector is available as a free download from Microsoft's Web site.
