Outlook has always been one of the most popular choices for organizing your business day. Outlook 2010 has added some powerful new tools, and modified a few of the existing ones. One of the biggest changes you'll notice right away is that the traditional Outlook menus have been replaced by the new Outlook Ribbon. Some of the old features you're familiar with have gotten a little bit of a face lift. The old traditional colors have been changed, and you can now add additional ones, as well. The Folder list and Navigation Bar have been reordered, so that now you'll find the Inbox easily at the top of the list.
If you're looking for the Distribution list, it's now called the Contact Group. There are also a number of new features, including Quick Steps, which allow you to organize your Inbox at the click of a button, the Mailbox Cleanup tool which helps you keep your storage space under control, and the Outlook's Social Connector which makes it a snap to keep you updated on your contacts through social networking sites, such as LinkedIn. I am really excited about the Outlook 2010 New Features course on lynda.com.
I know once you get started, you'll be as excited about the new features as I am.
