5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed treatment of Outlook 2003 for power users April 11, 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 Inside Out" from Microsoft Press is geared toward intermediate and advanced users of the latest version of Outlook, which has become a bloatware office tool that surpasses Lotus Notes in functions and complexity. If you want to become a true expert at using Outlook, or plan to deploy and manage Outlook at your enterprise, or have to take some MS Office certification exams in order to advance your career, you'll find this book immensely useful. In fact, this is simply the best advanced treatment of Outlook 2003, bar none.

Ok, I say this partly because I'm a fan of the Inside Out series, which is not only informative and helpful for those who want to master Microsoft's increasingly monstrously complicated software, but also highly accurate and authoritative. These latter features are very important and beneficial to the reader. "Inside Out" books don't claim to give you "inside secrets" or "Easter eggs" or "undocumented tweaks" -- even though they do offer such gems here and there -- instead they focus in giving you every iota of detail you'll need in order to power-use and troubleshoot each program.

"Outlook 2003 Inside Out" continues this well-written, well-edited tradition of the series. It's thick and heavy at over 1,000 pages -- with another 100 "bonus" pages on Visual Basic and other topics on the accompanying CD-ROM, in addition to the complete e-book itself -- but it's quite easy to navigate thanks to a well thought-out organization. Almost no stone is left unturned in the coverage of Outlook 2003's vast amount of features (but I'm sure there are minute details that even a book this size and scope has left out), and each feature is treated in great detail, sometimes to the point of overwhelming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Detailed Coverage of Outlook 2003 March 11, 2005
Format:Paperback
This book has excellent coverage of Outlook 2003. It is extremely thorough, covering every menu option in detail. My favorite part of the book is that it covers tips and tricks that are undocumented in Outlook's help. For example, it will tell you how to go to the filesystem to make a change to an Outlook file to fix a problem.

There are also excellent comparisons between previous versions of Outlook and 2003. The author obviously knows Outlook "inside out".

This book is probably a little too much for a complete computer beginner, but if you've used Office products before even somewhat, then you should be able to understand the information in this book.

Overall, excellent reference material and a great source of tips and tricks for Outlook 2003!

3.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, but still some holes November 21, 2005
Format:Paperback
Previous reviewer's comments are noted well, but I was somewhat disappointed in the coverage of forms development. I really wanted to learn to move/place fields on a contact form and designate them drop-down, etc. Simple enough, I thought, for a book of this coverage. But even though the author talked about the abilitiy to do this, there were no directions, no examples, and no description of the 'Controls' options required to do it. For a book of this size and price, I had hoped for more meat. No, not to the detail of VB scripting, but certainly more detailed coverage of Outlook's powerful forms and macro abilities. To my chagrin, I'm finding my answers under the Outlook 'Help' section in the program itself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Most comprehensive September 3, 2005
Format:Paperback
A most comprehensive treatment of Outlook. Extremely well suited for an experienced Outlook user, with many details on the use in a server/business environment. Describes the interrelationship with Windows Outlook Express. Probably a little too comprehensive for the single system user just trying to read and write a few email messages. Subject matter is exceptionally well presented and thorough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outlook is a complicated program. December 19, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had questions that "Outlook for Dummy" could not answer. I bought a used book from Amazon "Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 Inside Out" and found my answer. The book was used, but looked new to me.
