Here are our recommendations to get started. First, you should take a look at What's new in Microsoft Outlook 2010 to get a feel for the new features in Microsoft Outlook 2010.

Outlook users who are currently using another version of Outlook should take a look at the video training series "make the switch to Outlook 2010" that demonstrates core features in the email client.

The training series for Outlook are probably best suited for inexperienced users, and users who have little computing experience. Still, users who have not worked with Outlook 2010 yet may benefit from the training courses as well, regardless of their experience level.

    I would like information if you offer online Microsoft Outlook classes for company wide. We would prefer employees to have access to the software when needed. Is this something your company offers?
