- [Voiceover] Hi and welcome to Migrating from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2010. I'm David Rivers. Microsoft has incorporated some fairly major changes and improvements in Outlook 2010. So if you plan on migrating from Outlook 2003, this course will help to make your transition to Outlook 2010, as smooth and as seamless as possible. We'll begin with a tour of the new and improved fluent user interface, focusing mainly on the ribbon, the quick access toolbar, and backstage view. We'll also examine ways to take advantage of keyboard shortcuts in Outlook 2010.

If you've been using earlier versions of Outlook over a long period of time, you've likely accumulated tons of email messages, calendar entries, to do items, and contacts. We'll discover ways to locate these items, and transfer them over to your new Outlook 2010 installation, so you can hit the ground running when switching from Outlook 2003. We'll examine the new way of sharing calendars with others. And we'll see how you can search for content in email messages, calendars, and to do lists all with lightening speed.

So with so many topics to cover it's time to get started.
