Hi! You’ve found the new home of the Microsoft Office Outlook Team Blog, your one-stop-shop for tips, tricks, and rants directly from the Outlook product team here at Microsoft.
You may have seen some of our team members’ individual blogs out on the web, covering specific areas such as time management, search, and our extensibility platform.
Now that we’re working on our next release we’ve decided to create a team blog where we can talk about a wider range of topics. We look forward to having folks from all across the team posting about the tons of different features and functionality in Outlook.
We want to make it easier for everyone to find information, directly from the source, about the way Outlook works and how to get the most out of our product. We’ll be talking about what we’re working on, how we decide what to do next, and cool things you can do with the product.
For now, we’ll be communicating mostly about the current release, Outlook 2007. When the time is right, we’ll begin to transition to discussing details of the next release of Office and Outlook so you can learn more about what will be coming in the future.
We’ll all do our best to make sure this blog is a useful resource for the Outlook community and that our posts are topical and enjoyable. If you have a particular topic you want to know more about, or feedback on how we’re doing, use the EMAIL link at the top of the page to send us feedback. If you want to comment about a particular post, use the comment feature directly on that post.
We’re all looking forward to helping you learn more about Outlook and enabling you to use our favorite product more productively.
Thanks and happy reading!
This is a great news. Knowing the future of my favourite Office program directly from the product team is exciting. Thanks guys!
Nice job Michael. Looks pretty cool. Can't wait to start reading your teams posts. -Blog Queen (aka Janac)
Good to see you've got a team blog now. Does this mean I can unsubscribe from all your individual blogs? ;-)
Glad to see this pop up. I'm looking forward to reading.
Nice to see a blog about the only Office Program i use daily :)
Hi, What are you doing to progress and stop "top-posting" within Outlook? Often people, who know how to quote correctly, are forced by their employer to use Outlook. Until now, they are able to use 'Outlook Quote Fix' - home.in.tum.de/.../outlook-quotefix Unfortunately, it is not yet compatible with O27k. What plans do you have to integrate correct, RFC designated, quoting within your product? Secondly, have you been able to implement IMAP-IDLE support yet? Regards,

Hi! hope I can get an answer now about why categories are stripped on internal mail (using Exchange). Welcome!
Great! I can't wait to see your blogs.
Cool... I will look forward to this blog. I hope you will be open to honest and critical feedback. I've never been a fan of Outlook. I would like to be but Outlook has never been (in my opinion) as functional or easy to use as I would like. In particular, the email part of the program I find disappointing (I use Thunderbird). I have just installed the latest version of Outlook and will give it another try.
Nice to see this Team Blog!
I am hoping that one can see the posts regularly.
Hi guys, congratulations on the blog and thanks for doing it. I am one of your most avid users and developers and I'm currently working on a product that is going to make Outlook development much more developer-friendly. I know that because of the COM/STA nature of Outlook it's a difficult challenge but I think the most important thing you should consider for Outlook 14 is improving the threading situation. Using the Outlook API or heck, even just using Outlook is dreadfully slow and doesn't scale well with multi-core processors. It might just be time to consider breaking compatibility and developing a new API. At any rate, keep up the good work and I'll be checking in from time to time.
Nice to see this blog. Keep it up and blog very much.
I have a shared inbox account because I do all my bosses email. I installed Office 2007 and now I can't see my bosses inbox, outbox, sent items but I can see the contacts and calendar. Has anybody run into this problem?
Folks, what should happen if someone does not use the Office suite and wants to sync his WM5 device with the desktop? He/she should use Outlook, right? Outlook comes with the WM5 devices, but can also be bought as a standalone product. Because Outlook 2007 rocks, I bought it standalone. Then I wanted to use other Office applications on my home PCs and, because of that I bought Office Home & Student. I only need Calendar, Contacts and Mail in one PC. The other ones I use for reviewing information and doing school work. I then thought OLK2k7 + O2k7 Home & Student was the perfect composition to my needs. Well, it seems like Outlook Standalone 2007 and Office 2007 Home & Syudent do not go well together. I found no information preventing me from doing that before I bought OLK2k7 standalone. Would you guys tell me why I am so wrong in assuming they should go well together? Kudos, anyway, for the great work you guys do
WOOT this is fantastic. Could I suggest that the first topic for discussion be com addins in outlook and what best practice is out there to help customers with lots of custom com addins. Cheers
