We’ve contacted all 3 on Twitter to arrange your Pro accounts.
Happy Converting !

We’ve come from humble beginnings – here is what the very first edition of the service looked like:
We’ve come a long way since then, and now handle tens of thousands of conversions every day. We wanted to say a big THANK YOU to you guys – all the people who use our services, and to celebrate …
We’re giving away 3 professional accounts to the Zamzar service for 1 year !

Go for something funny / original / amusing and we’ll pick our 3 favourite tweets and list the winners here on the blog early next week.
Zamzar now supports the ability to convert Microsoft Project files into a variety of different formats. MS Project is a popular project management application introduced by Microsoft way back in 1984 to, er closely track and monitor people and projects. Sound familiar ?
Whilst MS Project has proved useful for various project managementy-tasks such as tracking progress, managing budgets and analyzing workloads it uses a proprietary .mpp file format to save project management files to. This can make it difficult to share files with co-workers who don’t happen to have MS Project installed themselves. We’ve fixed this problem by allowing you convert these files into PDF or any of the following image formats:
- bmp – Windows bitmap
- gif – Compuserve graphics interchange
- jpg – JPEG compliant image
- pdf – Portable Document Format
- png – Portable Network Graphic
- tiff – Tagged image file format
- xls – Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet
So for you all the project managers out there we hope this gives you an easy way of sharing project plans with colleagues without asking them to first perform a mammoth install of Microsoft Project !
