i haven't tested 2010 yet. i applied to m$ but haven't heard back so i assume i'm not accepted. i'm weary of grabbing a leaked copy at this stage. from what i've read and seen, it's gonna be great!!

2010 can run beside 2007 with np so if you wanted to check it out for evaluation than go ahead. Microsoft's click-to-run (which is what I was accepted into) isn't half bad either...it gets you into an Office enviroment extremely fast and once they get the qirks out of it will be the leading solution in Office in the future

Outlook and Hotmail...

I use Microsoft Outlook for my main email account and Outlook Connector for my Hotmail account and borrowed the AOL "you've got mail".wav to alert me of new Hotmail then I check both accounts when I open Outlook!

Works for me...

Outlook works for me

I use Outlook 2007 for all my needs. I have 4 different email acct. to coordinate, Windows live mail, g-mail, dish-mail, and qwestlive-mail. Outlook 2007 administers them all and maintains my contacts, calendars, etc. The only thing I don't get is the collaboration tools of a major NT network with Exchange server in the background syncing my Mobile device. I can do this manually so even that function can be worked with. This product is in my opinion one of Microsofts very best tools and that makes it worth the $59 cost for a stand alone copy....However....

I purchased Office 2007 Standard containing Word, Excel, and Outlook. I Don't have ANY need for power point except as a reader (free from Microsoft) So it comes down to office Home and Student or Office Standard 2007 (ask your self which is more useful) so why Trade outlook for a power point presentation product that I can get free in open source and anything else will require a higher level of office. Can't imagine why any normal home owner would want or need power point but if you need to read a ppt presentation there is a free reader from Microsoft. If you need other programs you can buy them individually or just upgrade to small business version of office.Or even ...horrors....use....gulp, gulp, gulp, Open office.org Presentation instead of Power Point. and while you are at it you can get a whole office suite compatible with all but the newest .docx, xlsx.etc formats (Now you know why Microsoft changed them!)and these can be avoided in the creation of the document in the first place (Dispite the rabid rants by the Microsoft only crowd - these products are based form and functionality on older Microsoft office vuilds and are compatible up until Office 2007.
There is also a very nice (Free) open source email client very comparable to Outlook called Thunderbird available from Mozilla. It also does multiple email accounts. contacts, blocking filters, spam filtering , calendaring, scheduling, and can with a little work also sync with your mobile device and did I mention the price FREE, FREE, FREE. so go ahead and tweek the underlining code to personalize it to do other things...no body cares..distribute your changes from free and no one wants a cut of the action.Thunderbird has one additional feature...it is compatible with Exchange server for the collaboration of meetings, etc.

I personally am lazy and just use Word, Excel, and Outlook, added in the Power Point Viewer, and the Paint product is available in Picture viewer when you chose modify the image. Can't think of anything else I need from my Microsoft Office products.

Thunderbird is good...but it still can't compare to Outlook 2010...Try out the Techincal Preview of Outlook 2010 and you will see...it is just incredible for not even being a beta yet. I haven't encountered one bug yet, hell if I didn't know better I would claim it as a finished product

I have three main accounts being organized and filtered into categories and folders by Outlook 2007 ( I have the 2010 preview but have not gone live yet).

All mail is left on the server and I use the web interface to archive the in-boxes every few days.

All local mail is backed up to a separate drive and of course I have the online copies for a secondary backup.

I use the web interface to check mail if away from base ( PC or on Phone)
