Microsoft releases Outlook 2002

Outlook 2002 streamlines email and assists users with scheduling and general tasks for Exchange Server users, the software company said in a statement.

The latest version of Outlook features indexing and search functions for all content in Exchange 2000 Server, including messages, documents, contacts, tasks, calendar items and other data.

Microsoft Exchange is an email and workgroup application server that includes collaborative features such as instant messaging as well as indexing capabilities.

Outlook 2002 provides Exchange 2000 users access to the instant messaging service, as well as access to better email maintenance and more flexible calendar options.

With the release of the new software, users working offline over a slow internet connection will be able to do so more quickly, claims Microsoft. Those working with Exchange Server online will be able to prevent Outlook from automatically synchronising their data.

Outlook 2002 will be included in all Office XP suites and will be available to Exchange 2000 users in Service Pack 1 by the middle of next year.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
