As much as we love adding new features to Outlook, for the maintainability of our product we sometimes need to remove those that are out of date and aren't utilized by a large number of users. This allows us to focus on improving the Outlook features that most of you, our customers, rely on.
The following are some features that we've removed from Outlook 2013, and we want to make sure you are aware so there aren't any surprises when you go to use or deploy the new version.
In Outlook 2013, we will no longer support "Classic Offline" Mode for Microsoft Exchange accounts. Users in this configuration will be upgraded to Cached Mode when they install Outlook 2013. For the vast majority of users this will mean no change to your Outlook experience. Details of Cached Mode in Outlook can be found here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj683103.aspx
Exchange accounts will no longer be able to have their delivery location be a PST file (rather an .OST). Users in this configuration will be upgraded to Cached Mode (with an .OST file) when they install 2013. See the previous article for details about cached mode.
Users will no longer be able to publish calendars publicly to Office.com using Outlook 2013, and the Office.com calendar sharing service will be shutting down for older versions of Outlook as well. We will publish a follow-up blog post detailing the timeline for the service changes, as well as ways to get the same feature set using Exchange or Outlook.com.
VPN and dialup preferences are no longer independently configurable in Outlook. These options were previously located on the Send/Receive tab in Outlook 2010. As a workaround, affected users are encouraged to set these options system wide in the Windows Control Panel.
Outlook 2013 will no longer surface search results for mail and calendar items in Windows Explorer (or via the start menu). Users can still utilize all of Outlook's search functionality from within the app itself.
The Journal as a top-level module no longer exists in Outlook 2013. Journal entries can still be accessed via the Journal folder in the Folder List module. Also, the ability to 'auto-journal' your Outlook actions is gone in 2013.
Outlook has traditionally supported importing and exporting data to and from many different file formats. Many of the formats Outlook has supported are outdated and are no longer in mainstream use. Outlook will continue to support comma-separated-value (.csv) files as well as .PST files, but other file formats are no longer supported.
This list includes:
- ACT! Contact manager files
- Word 97-2003 (.doc)
- Excel 97-2003 (.xls)
- Outlook Express archives
The Contact Activities Tab is removed from Outlook 2013. This previously provided a way to "link" contacts with other Outlook items, and have them all roll-up in the Activities Tab. The Outlook Social Connector (introduced in Outlook 2010) replaces much of this functionality in a faster, more user friendly fashion.

It seems that drag & drop an email on a specific date in the calendar does not work any more too.
Most deprecated feature: usability. I tried it for about a month and finally had to uninstall it.
You can no longer make changes to meetings in the To Do bar on the right. Cannot drag/drop meetings to a day to create them. Can no longer connect to a meeting workspace in SharePoint. New mail notification has no features, you used to be able to quickly delete a message that popped up if you wanted, but now you can just open or close the message. "Working elsewhere" is a great idea, but does not work with ActiveSync, the meeting will just not be synced, so a great idea that will need to be disabled.
Can no longer change the location of IMAP trash which causes mail to go to an unknown location in GMail.
And the "color" schemes? Really? 3 shades of gray, when did gray become a primary color? Was everyone reading 50 Shades of Gray and loved it so much they put it into the products, it is terrible to look at your screen for any amount of time.
There are more problems, but since I removed it, that is all I can think of right now.
Errr. Why kill off Outlook Express importing? It is still alive [well for another 15 months]. So if someone just got Windows 7 or 8 and wanted to use Outlook, they can't import Outlook Express mail. That's dumb [well, Apple has done it for a while actually.]
Now someone has to install Outlook 2010, 2007 or 2003 as a trial just to import their mail, remove the old Office/Outlook and install Outlook 2013.
Truly can't fathom the decision to remove mail and calendar items from desktop search. Really, what is the logic here? Sometimes if you're looking for a file the only place you would have it would be as an attachment.
Just because Windows8 takes a giant step backwards in search usability doesn't mean the Office team needs to follow suit.
extended feature of outlook 2013 are better comparison to previous version , and the cached mode feature are great and awesome.

How about giving us back the ability to hide message headers in the preview pane. This was removed from OL 2010 with no explanation. The kb article which explains that the checkbox no longer works specifically states that this feature is useful to those of us with limited screen real estate. It's actually useful to pretty much everyone. I know a lot of users who had to reinstall 2007 since there's no workaround.
What is the timeframe for calendar publishing to be available in Outlook 2013?
I just installed office professional plus 2013 today, because my pro plus 2010 outlook decidied it didn't want to send mail. Now with the new for the life of me I can't figure out how to create a group. All my contacts are there, but the create a group icon never allows me to select it. any help??
