Outlook 2010 Technical Preview

Sitting by a couple of friends and having a cup of coffee, one of my friends were pointing out that i should write a post and here i am signed into my blog and thinking on what to write :p

Suddenly one of the guys were asking about the new Office 2010 and there you go the topic just popped into my head “outlook 2010 (twenty ten – the way it’s been pronounced) “. I have been using office 2010 technical preview for some time now and am really impressed on the new interface it has. The major difference between office 2007 and 2010 outlook is the interface it has. If you look at the 2007 office products, Microsoft introduced the ribbon interface except for outlook and some of the other application. But in 2010 ribbon interface is included in all the applications from word to one note hence it is very much easier to perform tasks.

You don’t have to drill down menus in outlook to search for specific features. For an example if you are to create a new rule it’s just in front of your eyes making your life very much easier 🙂

The Office button in Office 2007 has been refined in Office 2010 and it does not look like a normal drop down menu instead looks like this

  1. We are looking at exchange 2010 – partly for the archiving function. exchange 2010 supports downlevel cleints e.g. Outlook 2007 but has poor support for the archiving feature…. we have been told that we will not be able to buy Outlook 2010 as a separate sku which would mean that we have to upgrade office to leverage that functionality….. thoughts?

  2. Hi Mike,
    Exchange 2010 definitely has a good archiving feature tagged along with Outllok 2010.

    Office 2010 is still on technical preview and I am not quite sure whether Microsoft would have decided on the licesing and the SKU now itself for it. Office 2010 will only reach its beta stage in November 2009.

    As of now the only changes that i am aware of are that groove is renamed as Sharepoint Workspace and a new version of Business Contact Manager is coming up for Outlook 2010.

    Let me post you the details as soon as i get them 🙂

    PS: Sorry for teh delayed reply
