The Microsoft Office Live Workspace is a service provided by Microsoft to enable online file sharing and storage. If you have installed the Office Live Update on your computer, you can use the Outlook e-mail program in coordination with your Office Live Workspace to directly open documents and spreadsheets, and to send and receive e-mails. If you choose to use the Microsoft Live service, you will need to configure Office Live to make use of all the features of the online application.
