Subject: [EXTERNAL] [UA-discuss] Microsoft announcement of EAI in India

Today, International Mother Language Day<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Mother_Language_Day>, we announced support for EAI in Office 365 and Outlook.com.  We are focusing on Outlook and webmail for now, though we will follow up regarding other mail clients soon.
Likewise we are focusing on Indian scripts now, because Microsoft India is taking the lead on this announcement.

UASG is mentioned and a snippet of content from UASG-007 is used. Also, we make a callout to XGenPlus as a Microsoft partner and source of India script language mailboxes.

We are expecting this to be well-received in India.  I have listed some English-language uptake so far, below.
Thanks to everyone in UASG and in these mailing lists who helped make this happen!
