Outlook 2007 is the latest full-featured emailing and contact management software from the Microsoft Office suite. Instructor Sean Conrad explains each of Outlook 2007's components and new features in detail, from the basics of the main interface to the more advanced elements of the application. Sean covers the Office button and the Quick Access toolbar as well as the ins and outs of reading and writing email. He delves into using the advanced filtering features to prioritize incoming mail and avoid unwanted spam or files. Sean also explains how to integrate Outlook's Calendar and Notes features for increased productivity.
Let's take a look at the user interface. The top, we have a standard Menu bar, and a toolbar. The toolbar is context sensitive, so the buttons on it and the things you can do will change depending on where we are in the application. So if we go down to Calendar, it'll change that toolbar to match. Let's go back to Mail. The main screen is divided into sections called panes. The far left pane is the Navigation pane. And it's the one we're going to use to jump around quickly, within the application. Now in this case, we're in our Mail, so we can use it to jump around within different areas of our mail, into different folders for example.
Our Junk E-mail, or our Inbox. Or we can use the bottom part of the Navigation pane to quickly jump around to another area of the application altogether. So to jump over into Contacts, I can click on Contacts. The Navigation pane is useful to get around, but if you're reading e-mail or something like that, you may not want it cluttering up the interface. So you can minimize the Navigation pane by clicking this button that has two arrows on it. As you can see, the Navigation pane is still available, it's just much smaller. And you can do many of the same things you could do when it's open, such as jump down to Contacts, and then back to Mail.
If you wish to maximize the Navigation pane again, simply click the corresponding button, and it will be maximized. On the far right is another pane that you can maximize or minimize. By default, the To-Do Bar is minimized. Click the double arrow button to maximize it. This of will give you a quick overview of your Calendar, any upcoming meetings or appointments you have for that day, and your Task list.
