Hi, I am Roby Kurian, Product Manager for Outlook. In 2007, I graduated from University of Washington (go Huskies!). While in school, I used Outlook to send and receive messages with the UW’s email system, but I never made use of Outlook’s rich features. I wish I knew then what I know now. I want to introduce some features in Outlook 2010 that can make your life as a student easier.
Manage multiple mailboxes with Outlook
Chances are you have more than one email account — a school account, and one or more personal accounts. Do you login to multiple sites to check your messages? With Outlook 2010, you can view all your accounts all in one place.
To get started, click the File tab which opens the new Backstage view. Click Add Account and then follow the step-by-step instructions for adding your email account to Outlook. For most accounts, all you need to know is your email address and password.
I’ve added my Windows Live Hotmail account to Outlook in addition to my corporate Microsoft mailbox. Now I can easily view messages and contacts from both accounts in Outlook. I love the convenience. If you use multiple accounts with Outlook, leave a comment below and tell us about your experience. You can find more set up instructions, on Office.com.
Facebook updates in Outlook
When you receive new messages, you can also catch up with the sender’s status updates on Facebook using the Outlook Social Connector. The Social Connector lets you view updates from your favorite social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace and Windows Live Messenger without leaving Outlook. The People Pane appears beneath the Reading Pane and displays updates from social networks, as well as messages, meetings, and file attachments that you and the recipient have exchanged.
To connect to your favorite social networks, download the provider add-ins from Office.com.
The Outlook Social Connector is included in Outlook 2010. If you’re using Office Outlook 2007 or Office Outlook 2003, there’s a download available so you too can start using the Outlook Social Connector.
Scheduling made easier
When working on a group project, do you find yourself in endless email threads trying to agree on a meeting time that works for everyone? Wouldn’t it be easier if you could see everyone’s calendars before proposing the meeting time?
The calendar sharing and publishing feature in Outlook can help. With calendar sharing you can share your calendar or publish your calendar online.
We understand privacy is important, so you control access, time span, and the amount of details that are shared in your calendar. Learn more about calendar sharing and publishing on Office.com.
Send us feedback
We also enjoy hearing how Outlook is helping make you more productive. Students, leave us a comment below about how you use Outlook at school.

As Outlook is such a great tool, it would have been a wonderful decision to integrate it into the student edition of Office for Mac 2011. ;) Which student can afford to pay the upgrade for the business edition just to receive the awesome new Outlook for Mac?
ainda estou me adaptando aos novos sistemas oferecidos .mais é muito bom melhorar sempre...
I LOVE Outlook. Its The best program on the office suite for me. I use it everyday whenever my pc is on you will see outlook 2010 is too. I love the FB social network intergration. I also love the new conversation view. THanks for developing The great new office 2010 and outlook 2010 MSFT. I Love IT!!!!!!!!!!!!
Had a power failure and unable to be the .raR Second part of OFFICE/ How do I get it my address is email@example.com aND ID is differ241. How do I fix it and get the second part of Office 2010? Bill (yes I paid the full anoount)
I just purchased a new laptop and ms office w/outlook. my isp is gmail and I can send email from outlook but cannot receive email in my 2010 outlook. I could with outlook 2007. The geek squad at Best Buy tell me there has to be a patch installed because window 7 is not compatible with 2010 outlook??
Office 2010 Home and Student. I would love to be able to use Outlook on my PC that came with Office 2010 preinstalled. I use Outlook at work and I really like it. But Office 2010 Home and Student doesn't include Outlook! This is crap. I have loaded all my school assignments in the calander and all my childrens important dates because YES I am the non typical college student. I was under the impression that Outlook was included. Or atleast that was what BEST BUY told me. So much for trying to be organized! Outlook should really be included. It is an awesome tool.

Unlike Trix, Outlook 2007 isn't just for kids (code word for students) it works for those of us in our second childhood just as well. I use 2007 but would like to upgrade to 2010. The Office 2010 I have does not have Outlook. How can I get an upgrade from 7-10? Can't seem to find it in any stores I've been into. I use Outlook to keep track of appointments, TV shows to watch, tasks to accomplish, shopping lists, ideas and other 'don't want to forget' things for e-mail and letters to folks; and, of course e-mail management(because of other programs on my computer and phone, I have seven different e-mail addresses and I can track them all.) Vcard and VCalendar are two of the greatest things since Bananas and Peanut Butter. I would like to see an app that will let me link my Outlook to my Android phone. Also, does 2010 allow the user to add substitute field names for the standard ones that don't describe the entry. On 2007 I can make user entred fields but they never show up as a choice in the Contact list display. Thanks for a good product. Like cars there is always something the user wishes they could have gotten with the machine.
Would be nice if Outlook plays nice with Windows Live Hotmail. Unfortunately it doesn't. I don't really like it if emails read at my phone stay unread within Outlook.
I have to agree that Outlook is awesome, but most students don't use it. Why? First, it has so many useless features that are preenabled and many don't know where to disable these ribbon entries or chose those that are helpful. (e.g. forward to boss is something students don't really need). Then of course Outlook is quite expensive and afaik not included in MSDNAA. Therefore many students use Windows Live Mail, which in my opinion has a cleaner user interface and the cooler features (sync with social media, image composition, etc)
Why is Outlook 2010 not included in the student edition if its so good for students?
We all updated to Office Pro 2010. The one thing we use 100% all day long is Outlook. The one thing we can't do is change the damn background of the Navigation folder page to white background. What the hell were the designers thinking? It is absolutely hard to read, they all the options to change are blue, black, and silver. Which all look hideous. You took 2007 and stripped it back to Outlook 2000 and made it even uglier.
We are so made that we are thinking about sending back our product and going back to Office 2007. 100% dissappointed and appauled that anyone in the beta could have found these ugly colored navigation pane backgrounds colors helpful or appealing.
Soon as we find a hack we are changing the most ugly offering from Office ever! Office 2007 was nice an colorful. 2003 was even better then this in color. We won't be ordering this update for the other 12 computers. We'll be staying with 2007.
why dont I get outlook with the student version 2010
Why would the designers think that going back 10 years would be good?
Removing the color options is thoughtless! And trying to define where the header of an email ends the email body starts when viewing in Navigation pane is sooooooooooooo annoying. I love all the Office 2010 products, but the above lets you down! Please, Please, PLEASE fix it!
Hi Roby Kurian, I have purchased Microsoft office Home and Student 2010 and realized that it doesn't have Outlook. Now I want to get Outlook. What should I do? Please guide..
I have a website that places 90% of junk mail in my inbox. I have more junk mail in my inbox than is in my junk E-mail folder. It makes no difference how many times that I place it in the spam folder, the very same junk continues to come to my inbox.
