Microsoft as a technical writer.

This is a computer manual, and a good one.

But Outlook is a funny animal, and knowing the technical side of how the program works will do little to help you use the program effectively. That is, to manage your tasks and email. For that, you need much different books (both those that involved Outlook, like Effective Time Management using MS Outlook, and those that focus purely on the 'theory' of time management such as Getting Things Done).

For most, this book won't cut it.

Outlook 2007, both as a separate client, and as a network client, needs to have a guide manual for most users.At some point you WILL need to have either a thorough manual or a very active community forum.If you work in an IT environment as I do, you have an extra benefit of many people using many forums.But, as a one stop shop, the QUE manual series is the most
comprehensive and hence beneficial source of information you can have on any topic, in this case, OUTLOOK 2007. The areas of the Interface ( and Outlook 2007 is essentially an interface to a server, in some cases an ISP, in some cases a Business EXCHANGE server), but however you get the raw info, the Outlook tool manipulates it in many ways, and can be supplemented. It also behaves differently in some cases, for example with Office 2007, the Templates loaded will affect the behaviour of the Outlook client, and so thats when saupplemental information is needed( a forum, or people who might now what is affecting outlook in a different way). Also, to get more out of Outlook, some people use XOBNI as a meta-data sorter ( a sort of Dashboard on a dashboard); I personally think XOBNI is not needed with good Outlook use, since you need much memory, and Outlook 2007 does the extra work anyway. But the Great thing about Outlook is that it really is an Email client which extracts a great deal of data, and also can be used as a first class PIM ( Personal Information Manager) and also a great Calendar and much more. This manual is all about USING Outlook 2007, and it does that in an orderly and logical manner.
Much of what lies outside of the manual is really about a full use of the templates. For example, if the default of the Appointment schedule gives you a screen that you don't want, then so long as the administrator has not locked the templates down, then you just change the calendar appointment, and save it in iCalendar or template mode... works beautifully.

I have never spent so much money on such a large volume that has so little useful information. If you are using Vista, check the other books available, this focuses on XP. I also bought 'Using Office 2007' and it is the same. The reading and explanations are easy to follow and understand, but I have found only a couple in each book that actually work. I do not know whether the high ratings given these books are XP users who have used limited information; but the ratings sure fooled me. I borrowed a 'Dummies' book and it has much more useful information.
