LABS GALLERY: Outlook 2010 Eases Common Tasks, Fully Adopts Ribbon Interface

by Jim Rapoza
Released with the Office 2010 beta, the Outlook 2010 beta looks to be a fairly significant upgrade over the previous version. Outlook 2010 is now a full-fledged member of the Office suite, with full use of the Office ribbon in the Outlook interface. Outlook 2010 also will help users quickly perform common tasks and integrate social network awareness directly into the mail client. However, the only so-called social network the beta currently works with is Microsoft's own SharePoint.
