History tells us that the latest technologies trump their predecessors because of the wealth of experience accumulated by the previous technologies. You’ll find the Boeing 777 much superior to that of the aircraft built by the Wright brothers. Same can be said of black and white movies to stereoscopic 3D technology, the gramophone to the mp3 and windows 1.0 to Windows 7. The latest always has the best in it, and the same can be said of Microsoft Outlook.
Microsoft Outlook 2010, the start of a new era
The new Microsoft Outlook 2010 is now a benchmark for the future versions of Outlook. Outlook 2010 has improved on most of the features of the previous versions, incorporated new technologies to a better user experience and more importantly, more freedom and power to an Outlook setting.
Let’s look at the new features and also where Outlook 2010 trumps over the previous versions.
Better home for an Outlook setting
Outlook 2010 now has a better looking user interface (UI) and this helps users access any Outlook setting needed. Every Outlook setting has been tucked away neatly in a ribbon. The ribbon now replaces the menu bar of Outlook 2007 and 2003.
Microsoft Silverlight is a new technology that enables amazing videos, animations and interactivity in Microsoft Office and Internet Explorer. It gives a plethora of outlook setting for easier customization and personalization to the user. Silverlight also gives a better online experience with Outlook 2010 and lets the user access the cloud services for backup your documents online.
Office 2003 introduced the format XML which allow the document to store its content along with the necessary settings for it to be viewed. This file type also was considerably lighter than its previous files. Outlook 2010 still continues to support this file type and this enables better backward compatibility.
