Today, we are thrilled to announce the release of the public Beta of Microsoft Office 2010! Betas for Office 2010, as well as SharePoint Server 2010, Visio 2010, and Project 2010 are available for download at www.microsoft.com/2010. This is an exciting and significant milestone for both the Office and Outlook teams, because it means that for the first time, anyone can download Office 2010! You can learn more about the complete release of the Office 2010 beta on our Office blog.
The Outlook team is particularly excited for a number of reasons – the beta release represents the latest and best version of Outlook 2010 we’ve been working on. Features that we’ve discussed on this blog in recent months – Conversation Arrangement, Quick Steps, Mail Tips, Calendar Preview, Multiple Exchange Accounts and more – are all now publicly available and accessible through the beta for anyone to try today. In addition to the features we’ve already discussed here, we’ve invested a great deal between the Technical Preview release and today’s beta around the user interface, performance, and overall fit and finish. Finally, we are introducing a great new feature today, the Outlook Social Connector.
In addition to the beta release, the Office team has also done a great deal of work to improve our online content and experience, and you can see the latest information on Office 2010 and more by visiting the newly designed Office.com.
The beta is a significant milestone in the development of Office and Outlook 2010, but we’re not done yet! Our final and official release of Office 2010 is still slated for the first half of 2010, and I encourage you to keep in touch with us on this blog to learn more as we enter the final phases of our development efforts to release Office 2010.
Finally, I’d like to personally thank everyone who has been involved with our efforts to release the beta today – in addition to the Outlook engineering team, there have been countless customers and partners who have given us invaluable feedback along the way to help make this beta what it is today. I know I speak for all of them when I say go download the beta of Office 2010 and enjoy!

I've only been using Outlook 2010 for a few hours, but I like what I see so far. View email by thread is a big timesaver (as is ignore email by thread -- though I'm not sure why this doesn't work if you have "download headers first" turned on). I also love the way you can see the small excerpt of your calendar in meeting requests (i.e. the meeting immediately before and after). Very helpful. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to RTM.
Hello Team MS, I have installed Microsoft Office 2010 Beta. I just cannot locate my 'send' button Thanking you in advance Regards, Mutimba Mazwi
st_mutimba(at)hotmail.com is my email address
Clicked "Work Offline" in Outlook 2010 and now cannot get back online. Have tried seemingly everything with no result. Very frustrating.
Love black color scheme!!! Not so excited about 64bit Outlook + Office Communicator R2 integration. No conversation history and address book sync problems. Worked great in 32-bit. Can someone at least comment on a thread that may discuss this so I can stop hunting for a solution :-).
Much thanks for the beta though... Overall it is splendid.
Does anyone else have an issue where their Outlook ribbon is missing almost all of your tabs? For instance, I can't even great a new e-mail or appointment, etc, there isn't an icon for it. I looked though the settings and those tabs are apparantly enabled. Also I can't right-click on an e-mail either, nothing happens. Have removed Office completely and re-installed. Created new profile as well. Thanks.
I am getting an error message when I open outlook 2010 --- Exchange server is unavailable. I need to be connected online to use the outlook. Can someone assist me on getting to outlook? Thanks
Is there a known bug on Office 2010 Beta regarding Calendar dates? I have an environment and some Calendar dates appear wrong with one hour less. Sometimes the an appointment appears with one time on the calendar and when I open it the time is different.
I have under Options/Advanced "Empty Deleted Items folders when exiting Outlook" set. However I get annoying confirmation request every time I do exit. With Outlook 2007 there was option to turn this off but can't find it on 2010
Does anyone know of a 2010 Support or Troubleshoot link / site? I removed the Beta and now 2003 will not allow me to load my own personal folder. It exists on our Exchange server and has been checked on the other machines in our office; i just receive a message stating 'Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Unable to open the Outlook Window. The set of folders could not be opened' each time i try to access the application. Help! :/
Beta Outlook 2010. After Outlook 2007 frustrating, but getting there slowly. Help pretty useless frequently says page cannot be displayed. It took me ages to find out how to import csv file when used with Windows 7 Ultimate OS, had no problem with Vista and XP. Please tell me why when I delete received mail, it is not deleting it from my mail server. If I use outlook on another machine, the deleted email is still showing....particularly ammoying when using My Nokia N series to download mail.
Same with me. I went offline in outlook 2010 beta and I cannot go back online again!!
I am having problems with search. I use Outlook 2010, Windows 7 and Exchange 2007 and have multiple mailboxes opened (using additional mailboxes, not separate accounts) and I can only manage to have search index my own box. I might be doing something wrong, though. Group Policy to allow indexing delegates is already enabled, and cached mode is on too.
I am presently testing Outlook 2010 Beta on Windows 7/64 Bits.
I am having a problem with incoming emails. I get the notification in the bottom right corner of the monitor but when I maximize Outlook, the emails are nowhere to be found. I can get the emails on my second computer using XP/Outlook Express which leads me to believe that there is a bug in Outlook 2010 Beta. What are your thoughts.
How can I send suggestions to the Outlook team in a way I know they'll be read? When the Outlook reading pane is sorted by Date - Oldest on Top and you navigate through an email conversation with multiple responses, the newest conversation is always opened first. This is very annoying. When the view is sorted by Oldest on Top, the conversations view should also be sorted by Oldest on Top. When the conversation is opened the oldest conversation should be selected/opened first. Saying this, if I sorted the reading pane by Date - Newest on Top, then I would want conversations to be sorted by newest on top and the newest conversation would be selected/opened first.
All I want from Outlook 2010 to replace Mozilla Thunderbird is the ability to sync a calendar to an ICS based one. I use a personal ICS on my own email account with an LDAP address book on my iphone, webmail and at home using thunderbird. I would replace thunderbird 3.0 in seconds if Outlook allowed me to write to internet calendars as currently I can only read from them. Still, slightly happier at the increased support for IMAP!
