The PDF-XChange MS Outlook Add-in installs with PDF-XChange Standard and displays in MS Outlook. It enables the immediate conversion to PDF of emails and bypasses the need for an email client when it is used to archive emails. The PDF-XChange tab is available in the main window when MS Outlook is open:
