The Barnes & Noble Review
Special Edition Using Microsoft Outlook 2003 contains an immense amount of Outlook 2003 information you can use right now to make yourself more productive.

Unlike much of Office 2003, Outlook 2003 is a really significant upgrade. This 1,000-plus-page book has been written from scratch to reflect the latest version. You couldn’t ask for a more qualified author. Patricia Cardoza doesn’t just administer and write about Outlook: She’s earned Microsoft’s coveted Most Valuable Professional award for her leadership in the Outlook technical community.

Cardoza thoroughly covers every Outlook module: contacts, tasks, email, calendar -- even the oft-neglected Journal, immensely useful for anyone who needs to track their time. Of course, all the new stuff is here: Outlook 2003’s interface, improved junk email options, message Quick Flags, the Reading Pane, search folders, information rights management, and more. There’s even a lengthy chapter on the Business Contact Manager add-in.

If you’re connected to a corporate Microsoft Exchange Server messaging system, you have access to even more Outlook features -- and Cardoza sets aside a full section of the book for these. (There are major improvements in caching, which make it easier to work with Outlook when you’re “off the network.” There’s the Out of Office Assistant, which simplifies the task of letting email senders know you’re away. There are improvements in Public Folders, remote mail downloading, and more.)

Every chapter contains troubleshooting tips, plus a section offering new ideas for using Outlook to enhance your efficiency. Which is, after all, the point. Bill Camarda

Meet the Author

Patricia Cardoza didn't plan on spending her life working with computers. She graduated from the University of California, Davis with a degree in Environmental Sciences, but every job she has ever had has involved computers. Finally, in 1996, she stopped fighting the inevitable and took a job as an IT manager for a telecommunications company in Sacramento, California. For the past five years, she's been working as the co-network administrator, Exchange administrator, programmer, and resident Outlook expert for a box company in central California. In 2001, Microsoft awarded Patricia Most Valuable Professional status for Microsoft Outlook.

For the past four years, Patricia has been writing about Exchange and Outlook for various online technical journals including TechRepublic, .NET Magazine, and Microsoft's Office Communities page. She takes on small independent consulting projects in her spare time, mostly related to programming Outlook forms and Access databases. Patricia is also a gadget geek and loves playing with the latest wireless devices. She is currently implementing an 802.11g network in her home and has a Pocket PC Phone Edition that goes everywhere with her.
