When I started my new job recently, I was given an email account.
They wanted us to use the Microsoft webmail service, but I had a very difficult 
time with it myself.
I ended up needing to use the desktop client for Office outlook 2003 and it 
works fine.
It appears that Microsoft depends alot upon Java which is a bear as far as I'm 
concerned when it comes to screen reader accessibility; and yes I even tried 
using the access bridge but to no avail.
I'm using Jaws 10 at work so it might be safe to say the Jaws 7 is just as 
difficult to work with webmail.
If you hear of any other suggestions, let me know.

  Has anyone managed to use Microsoft Webmail successfully with jaws?  I can 
get so far but I can't seem to stay in forms mode to actually type in a 
message.  As soon as i press the space bar, it drops out of forms mode then 
flies off around the screen as the characters being typed are then treated as 
navigation keypresses.  Very frustrating.

  I'm using Jaws 7.1 in IE 7.
