Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Millions of folks live their lives in Outlook. If you're among them, Outlook 2007 is filled with features that can help you live your life more efficiently. Spend just a little time learning some of them, and you'll be paid back many times over. And, while you're at it, get a quick, easy reference guide that'll answer your questions as soon as you think of them. That guide: Teach Yourself Visually Microsoft Outlook 2007.

Like all of Wiley's oversized, full-color, Teach Yourself Visually books, this one's wonderfully easy to use. Each task gets its own full-color two- or four-page spread. From Calendar to Contacts, Email to Notes, screen captures show exactly what to do and what happens when you do it. Just look up what you want to accomplish, follow the step-by-step instructions, and you're there.

This one covers some 140 Outlook techniques, ranging from new Outlook 2007 features like Instant Search and Email Postmark to underutilized tools like Journal. If you've ever intended to set up an electronic business card that you can attach to all your messages, this book can help you do it in just moments. Same for organizing your messages (about time, no?). Same for customizing Outlook 2007 around your personal needs and preferences (easier than you think).

There's a full chapter on Outlook's support for retrieving RSS feeds: subscribing (and unsubscribing) to them; importing feed lists; reading posts and attachments; even finding interesting new feeds. Another chapter walks you through integrating Outlook email with cellphone text-messaging services. This stuff's new to Outlook -- and with this book's help, you'll be among the first to take advantage of it. Bill Camarda, from the September 2007 Read Only
