Microsoft Outlook is more than just the email program that comes with Office...it's actually a personal information management program.
Yes, with Outlook (OL) you can send and receive email, but you can also monitor your to-do list through Tasks, keep post-it type notes with Notes, manage your contact list with Contacts or the more enhanced Business Contacts feature that comes in some versions of Office, and you can track your appointments and schedules, and more, in the Calendar or even multiple calendars.
With all those features, Outlook contains a pile of options that allow you to customize the way each part of the software behaves. And because there are so many options, some of them are buried under several layers of dialog boxes. In this article, I'll go through some of the initial email Options and explain what all this stuff means in both versions of Outlook...2003 and 2007. In future articles, I'll continue moving through the rest of the options to explain all those, as well.
